Because they refused to drive in the city, my family chipped in to rent a van for our Wedding.
The ceremony went off without a hitch (well, almost). Everyone arrived at the reception site in good time. During the Cocktail Hour, FIL went out to the parking lot for some reason and saw the van driver opening his lunch box.
This was not acceptable to FIL. He came back inside, sought us out and suggested that the driver be brought in to join the reception. Of course, the driver couldn't have any alcohol apart from the champagne toast and FIL would happily pay for his meal.
Our reception was at a steak house. Guests went to a soup and salad bar, then there would be a plated meal served. There was room to seat the driver at a table and plenty of meat in the kitchen. Adding a last minute guest would be no problem.
Of course we agreed and the van driver joined our reception. He actually looked more nervous than the average Bride. Everybody at the reception was sociable and the tables weren't divided by families so he fit right in. Frankly, we think the guests were thrilled to talk with someone they didn't already know.
By the time the cake was served,the driver had opened his wallet and was showing off pictures of his family. He was almost in tears and explained that he'd driven to dozens of these affairs and had never been invited inside before. He was having a wonderful time.
He was in several of the reception pictures and we sent him copies.
FIL was always a kind and generous man but this was a gesture we will especially remember.
