“Most important considerations when planning a wedding: flattering lighting and good wine. You can go on and on with decor, but it is all lost if the lights are bright and there is no mood. Candlelight is the best vehicle to make guests feel beautiful and dance like animals without worrying about jiggling arms. Cutting corners with cheap wine can ruin the evening. There are plenty of delicious wines in a ‘party price range.’ Ask a local wine shop for ideas, and taste everything. Cheap wine, cheap wedding.”
