Some of the things we do that you would never know about..

  1. Grab things the couple/family forgets to buy and/or bring

  3. Be the one to take the blame for your decisions that your family members or guests may not like.
  4. Setup a whole entire reception in 10 minutes immediately after the rain
  5. Store your wedding cake in a cool location so it doesn’t melt, and bring it out when it’s time to cut it.
  6. Have a fork, knife, plate, and napkin ready for your cake cutting
  7. Have a damp napkin available during your cake cutting in case you guys decide to smash the cake in your faces.

  16. Keep things on schedule so you can enjoy as much time dancing as possible.
  17. Tell your photographer when to be ready for toasts and cake cutting so they don’t miss it.
