Food and the wedding cake
The food served at the wedding will be mainly hamburgers and french fries. The hamburgers and fries will be bought from Hesburger.

There will be a figure of Sandy and Danny dancing on the top of the cake.
Milkshakes from Hesburger will be served and also beer, juice and soda.
The Pavilion will be decorated as a diner from the fifties. The floor will be covered by black and white squared carpet. The chairs of the restaurant will be replaced by red leather couches. There will be different neon light signs on the wall for example one with the phrase Congratulations. The floral decorations will be made of red and white roses that are put in milkshake glasses. The wedding bouquet will be made of roses. There will also be balloon arches.
Music and entertainment
There will be a jukebox so that everyone has a chance to choose a song that they like. Later on the evening there will be a live band playing songs from the fifties. The band will play for half an hour or a little bit more but not the whole night.
Outside next to the pavilion there will be a couple of amusement park rides that are rented from Tivoli Sariola. Tivoli Sariola is a Finnish company that runs an ambulatory amusement park and it rents its rides for private use. There could be a Ferris wheel and some carousel.
