Presentation Pointers:

1. Make a collage of photos or blow up an image of the engaged couple and have guests sign with their good wishes.

2. Serve your menu buffet-style to make a more relaxed casual atmosphere where guests can come and go as they please.

3. Plan on making toasts or telling embarrassing stories about the couple for a great activity. If family or friends are meeting each other for the first time, these activities will make great ice breakers!
