Aside from that, classic music will not exclude anyone.
As the reception program near its end, you will also need wedding favors to give to your guest to signify your gratitude for gracing your wedding. These favors can range from sugar coated almonds, cakes or something more lasting like a frosted wine glass with the newlyweds name and date of the event.
