It is best if you ask your baker to bake you a separate small cake that you can bring home.
- Water bottles

People will tend to get bottled water even before the wedding ceremony starts. Also, it is a general rule that you have to give your guests enough water to drink after they drink beer or any type of alcohol.
Do not depend on the water supply to the catering service or bartender as you have to make sure that there is enough.
One of the things you have to make sure of is there are enough rewards to give away to guests participating in games. You might have prepared a lot of games but forget that you need to give away enough rewards. Also, consider that there can be a chance that players are tied.

Some will get more, so it is best if you have enough to serve your guests. The same goes for beer and other alcoholic beverages. Just make sure you have enough, do not supply your guests too many alcoholic beverages though as it may spoil the peacefulness and intimacy of your wedding.

Some, only bring a few bottles making some of their guests not having a glass of champagne to lift for the toast. Anyway, all of the excess champagne can be brought home so you do not need to worry about wasted money.
