One Comment on “On Newsstands Now: The Summer/Fall 2016 Issue

  1. There are a lot of different options for what you can do. My husband and I love Tex-Mex, so we actually served Tex-Mex at our wedding – buffet style. You can do a brunch, or a tea service and serve light fare with it. Sometimes it depends on the time of day of your wedding, your location/venue, and theme as well to what you decide. Great ideas, thanks for sharing!
