How To Choose Your Wedding Fizz

Thursday 31st December 2015

When you have chosen the best wedding bands Essex has to offer, you need to select the best drinks to serve your wedding guests while you are listening to them.

One of the biggest expenditures at any wedding is the alcohol, so it is best to make a budget and then figure out what the best you can afford within this budget is.

Don’t assume that more expensive is necessarily better however, with some good cavas arguably being a better bet than a bad Champagne. Either way, see if you can book into a tasting to see what a good wine merchant can advise for your budget.

Prosecco

This increasingly popular drink should really be approached as a speciality in its own right rather than as a cheap Champagne. It is a great choice if you want to serve it to a large number of guests with a wide range of palettes, as it is unlikely to be overly dry or overly sweet.

A good prosecco should have a fruity rather than minerally flavour (which is more the domain of Champagne style-wines).

Learn more about prosecco on the Onlygreatwines.com website.

Sparkling Wine

Perfect for locally sourced weddings as you can now get British sparkling wines, from as far North as Yorkshire. This group of wines also includes cavas and other white sparkling wines. Make sure you taste them as quality can vary widely.

Champagne

This is going to cost a lot so make sure you know what you are doing. If you have a preferred Champagne choose a good year, which can make a big different to the quality of the bottle.
