To make your wedding more memorable, you can add a unique champagne wall as the focal point of your reception. A champagne wall is a beautiful addition to any wedding and you may be surprised at how easy it is to set up yourself. Read on to find out how to make a champagne wall for a wedding with everything you need from the start to the festive finish.
DIY Champagne Wall for Wedding
First, gather the items you’ll need for the celebration. In this blog post, we’ll cover the materials, setup and placement, and decoration for the sign. We’ll also tell you what kind of champagne flutes you should use for a champagne wall and where to buy them.
NOTE: If you prefer a champagne wall rental vs. purchase, some are available to rent here in your local area.
Here’s what you need to make a champagne wall.
The four things a perfect champagne wall will need include the following:
1. The champagne wall itself
2. Champagne flutes
3. Plenty of champagne
4. Decorative sign
To start, you should obtain a sturdy champagne wall or stand to hold the champagne flutes and make them easy for guests to take. The way they’re arranged will make them look so beautiful, too, and add a unique touch to your decor.
Decide what style of the wall will coordinate best with your decor. There are several styles to choose from; is your wedding rustic-themed? If so, go with a wooden champagne wall like this by BlankCanvasByPotter. Available here.

Setting Up the Wall
Next, you’ll want to set up your champagne wall.
Unpack and Set It Up
Prior to your wedding, be sure to unpack the wall and set it up at home to see how much space you’ll require. Also, now is the time to ensure the wall does not need any adjustments or fixes before the event.
You’ll also want to know exactly where you plan to set it up at the reception to ensure it is solid enough for its placement: are you putting it on a tabletop? Is it a full-length champagne wall and will need to be placed on hard ground? Can it be set up on grass or is it not sturdy enough? Now is the time to figure out the exact placement of your champagne wall and draw out a diagram of where it will go.
Where Does a Champagne Wall Go?
The ideal place to put a champagne wall at a wedding is near the entrance of the reception by the escort cards or seating chart near your welcome sign. This way, guests can take a glass of bubbly, find their seats, and start mingling or be seated for dinner.
Add Your Materials
Where to Buy Champagne Flutes in Bulk
The only two materials you need now are champagne and flutes! You can use glass flutes from your venue if you are renting them. Alternatively, you can purchase bulk champagne flutes in glass here.
You can buy glass flutes in bulk: a set of 12 is around $36 here.
Prefer acrylic or need a non-glass option for your venue? Want to spend less? Go with acrylic champagne flutes in bulk here. You need the champagne glasses that are stemmed: the stem is what helps to keep the glass on the wall.
You can get cheap bulk acrylic flutes from here: 100 plastic flutes for $22.
Where to Buy Bulk Champagne
Finally, purchase champagne to fill the flutes. You’ll fill them just following the ceremony, so it’s ready for guests upon entering the reception.
Since champagne can be expensive, you will want to buy it in bulk to save money. The best place to get affordable champagne in bulk is from Total Wine.
Decide How to Transport
How will you pack and transport the champagne wall to your wedding? Make sure it fits in your vehicle properly. If someone else is transporting the wall, be specific on set up so he or she can bring it to the proper place to build the champagne wall correctly.
Finally, you’ll need signage to dress it up a bit.
Here are some champagne wall signs to inspire a unique look. Most signs are lightweight enough to be added to a champagne wall of your choice with these 3M hooks and stickers.
