My parents are stubborn and really hard to "trick" into going to a different place and at an abnormal time. It was like a pulling off a mission on Mission Impossible.

The Surprise reactions! ;)
The 40 Guests (Or at least some of them):
Sweet Little Memories:
I had each person write on a 4x6 index card a little message to the happy couple. I then collected them to be put in a photo album book for them to cherish. My mom in particular, really teared up with this.
The NOT So Newlywed Game:
Now, it isn't a party without a games, and what more fun than making the couple participate in a game of their era, The Newlywed Game, but revised to the Not So Newlywed Game. It was a highlight from the night. Apparently these two are reigning champs at this game, so it was fun to see them play once more.
Questions started out basic and gradually got harder.
A few Question asked:
1. What was your wedding date?
2. Where was your first date?
3. How many were at your wedding?
4. Who snores the most?
5. And the last question was, What is the key to lasting 40 years married?
And the Aftermath:
