You and your guests will have many fond memories about your event.  That the ceremony was meticulously set.  The dinner was served hot and on time.  The cake tasted as delicious as it looked.  The microphone worked.  The bartender smiled.  And the budget was met!  With every expectation exceeded, your once-in-a-lifetime special event will be regarded by everyone as a spectacular success!
