As for music, we decided to set the mood with jazz classics from the 60s like Sinatra, Cole and even a touch of 70's pop from the Fab Four. Our march-in theme was immaculately tempo-ed by the sweet serenade of Old Blue Eye's - L.O.V.E!!! Alas, the biggest compliment we got for the song selections was that many of our guests decided to "steal" a copy of the wedding mix tape after our event to set the mood to their own weddings or that of their children and relatives.
My wedding venue housed only approximately 30 tables and we decided to keep the guest list to a moderate size, as with my extensive experience working with wedding events a crowd of around 300 guests is definitely easier to manage and you can really make it a more personal and casual evening. I recall having actually to remind my guests to take their seats in the main hall as they were over enjoying the pre-wedding cocktail mingling at the lounge area which took casual to a whole new height. Nevertheless, I loved the idea that the guests were comfortable and everyone felt at home and like a family - mission accomplished and I actually had the time and appetite to enjoy the food that evening.
