Does anyone have any experience with ordering 187ml bottles of champagne/sparkling wine? My wedding isn't until March so I'm thinking about waiting till close to or after New Years. Thoughts?

Re: Mini Champagne Bottles

  • I bet you'll be ok either way! It won't go bad as long as it doesn't get unreasonably warm. I am putting these in my welcome bags and just cleared out the local Total Wine & More, but I only needed 30. Any big-box style wine store (Total Wine, BevMo) should be able to order you a few cases with only a week or two of notice.
  • It never hurts to ask a manager for a discount.  After NYE, I usually stock up on champagne for brunches and tailgates later in the year.  Kroger and big stores always have it on sale.  Just ask a manager if you buy everything left, if you can get an additional discount.  
  • Def check out discount liquor stores.  I looked into them for my wedding, but decided to go with another favor instead.  
  • You may check direct with a producer - eg, Chandon in California. Depending on the volume of your order (and state receipt laws for alcohol) you might get a good direct discount. Plan to do the same for our welcome bags.
  • I'm planning on doing this for my wedding in May, haven't decided between wine or champagne yet. I was able to find the largest/cheapest selection at weddingwinefavors.com  They will even do personalized labels for free. Stew Leonards also had a few different choices, but since they were basically the same price I will probably go with the personalized ones online. Not sure yet when I will be ordering -probably not until at least February.


    I originally wanted to go with the half bottles and then use them as the holders for escort cards but I had a really hard time finding them. So now going with the smaller bottles and giving them to each person

    sames52915 just so you're aware, I've found bottles much cheaper than this at Total Wine.

    I'm going to wait until after NYE to see if they have anything on sale/clearance.
