Come back later in the evening with your wedding party, their significant others and your close family and friends to work our the last minute details to ensure everything runs smoothly the next day. Then start the celebrations early with a dinner that can be casual or formal, whatever style you choose you will secure in the knowledge that all is ready for your wedding day.
