You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

Congratulations on your impending nuptials!


Whether big or small, elegant or casual, more than likely you will be dining in the presence of all of your invited guests!  All eyes on you – watching YOU….while you eat, drink, toast, and speak. While planning all the various details of your  beautiful event, make sure you consider the importance of appropriate social and dining skills and the impression you will make.

Remember, many details will be captured on video. Will you be prepared when someone interrupts your head table while you’ve just taken a bite of salad? Should you raise your glass when being toasted?
