What do most guests remember from a wedding? The Wedding entree choices of course! Approximately 3 months before the wedding you should sit down with your venue's Catering Manager and discuss your menu options. It is very hard to select that one main entree choice and hope that everyone likes it.

When to do the first dance? Traditionally it is right after the meal just before opening the dance floor.
