4 – Taste Test Everything That Will be Served
You are looking forward to saying “I do.” Your guests will already be wondering what is going to fill their stomachs at this point. Try lots of different dishes before you decide on a final menu.

You should even have an alternative venue for your reception in case a mistake has been made somewhere. No one wants to see your big day ruined because of a silly error. Thinking ahead will give you a way around almost any problem.
