They can usually handle any other requirements, including bridal bouquet, photos or videos, music, the wedding cake, champagne toast for the bridge and groom, and even the services of the best man, if necessary. Honeymooners get special treatment in most hotels, with a basket of fruit and flowers or a bottled of chilled sparkling wine on arrival.
