Lidl France Bordeaux Crémant de Bordeaux AOP Schaumwein Mousseux Bordeaux Schaumwein Mousseux

Lidl's Cremant de Bordeaux Brut:

If you're on a budget, you'll be hard-pushed to beat Lidl's Cremant de Bordeaux Brut, an award-winning sparkling wine that has been named one of the best in the world. The drink is said to be increasingly popular in the UK due to its "champagne-like dry, biscuity yet zesty finish to the sparkling wine – often more effervescent than Prosecco." And at £7.99 a bottle, it's a real bargain too. Available at Lidl stores nationwide from 24 May.

Commte de Senneval champagne lidl

Lidl Comte de Senneval Champagne Brut, France:

Alternatively, for a little more you could try the supermaket's Comte de Senneval champagne, which has a mix of citrus and biscuit flavours, with a clean, dry finish. A steal at £10.99 and available at Lidl stores nationwide.

With notes of apple, honey, black liquorice and acacia blossom it's a fruity and easy-to-drink tipple that's ideal for your royal wedding celebrations. RRP: £9, available at NISA, Budgens, Bargain Booze, CostCutter and Londis.

Freixenet Italian Rosé

Freixenet Sparkling Rosé:

The bottle alone makes Freixenet's Sparkling Rosé stand out, but you won't be disappointed by the light and fruity flavour of this fizz, which is made with a blend of Italy's finest Glera and Pinot Noir grapes. A fabulous way to toast the newlyweds. RRP: £12, available at Tesco.

Aldi Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut

Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut NV:

This champagne is a bestseller and award-winner, and we can see why! The fizz features a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pino Meunier grapes, and has been carefully aged to create a unique taste that is sure to make you feel in a celebratory mood. £10.99, available at Aldi.

Prosecco drops

Prosecco drops:

Get in the patriotic mood and change your champagne or prosecco red or blue in honour of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's big day. Simply add a few squeezes from the pipette into your glass and top up with the fizz of your choice. They'll add a fruity flavour to your drink too – the red drops are strawberry flavoured, the gold drops taste like pineapple and the blue drops will add a sweet blueberry flavour to your drink. £3.99, available from Teamhen.co.uk.
