    No worries ,here to help. Oh and one more thing, if you were thinking 8 best go on and make it 10. 12 is probably an even better number . Don't shoot anyone's eye out with those corks!

    And congrats

    Hey, I don't mind laughing at myself. I got married after being helo'd off an aircraft carrier that was operating in the North Atlantic and instead of a port call, where I had planned to leave the ship, we got sent to the Med. I told the XO, given the Navy pissed at me, or future MIL, I needed to get the hell off the ship and back to US.
    So I get home 2 days before wedding. My in-laws did not drink, so I was gonna spring for the Champagne for the reception. I got some "good stuff" for about $7.00 a bottle to start, and then some "other stuff" for about $5.00 a bottle to serve as the event progressed and people would not be quite as aware. This was in 1982, I admit, but still, all that was rot gut! My greatest ever social faus pas. And that is saying something.

    Anyway. I drink right much bubbly and I recommend MOST STRONGLY
    Domaine Ste. Michelle Brut
    It's not technically champagne (only stuff brewed in that region of France is truly Champagne, but it is an excellent sparkling wine!)
    Brewed in Washington, between $12 and $15 per bottle, consistent. Don't serve rot gut!

    Ah, 1984 on a NATO visit to The Hague. The Babylon Hotel. Veuve Cliquot, all night till about 4:00 am. Royal Netherlands Navy guys buying. Up at 6:00 for trip to Den Helder (an end of world kind of place in the winter) to inspect a Dutch Frigate. Not my best day!

    Thanks. I'm paying for an open bar too, so I don't think the champagne will be drunk for much more than toasting.
