Champagne Saberers and Other Ways to Give Your Wedding Venue A Heart Attack

Ever seen a champagne saberer? That’s someone who opens bottle of champagne dramatically – with a sword.  I thought that sounded like the coolest thing ever.  Why not create the bubbly, exploding high point at a wedding? Get six of them for an exciting lead-in to some adventurous bride’s champagne toast.  Greg, always the cool-headed event professional threw a champagne bucket on my head.

“I have one word for you:  LIABILITY.”

There’s a reason you can’t do whatever you want at your wedding.  Someone, be it a professional wedding venue or your lovely aunt who’s loaning you her backyard, is legally responsible for what occurs on their property.  You also, as the person giving the party, can also be held responsible. It’s best to avoid dangerous activities (like ones that say, that cause flying bits of glass in the air near your guests.)

I am not a lawyer.  I cannot say whether you will give your venue’s coordinator a heart attack when you show up with your pet python as a ringbearer.  The key here is to ask – and to stay one step ahead of plans.  Cheers to planning!  Champagne, anyone?

Be well, and love well.
