Everyone will be concentrating on you and your partner on your wedding day, from compliments on your stunning outfit to comments on your delectable dessert.
Your friends and family are the guests you've invited to your wedding, so it's important that they enjoy themselves just as much as you do. You love them enough to invite them!
Without going out of your way, there are simple things you can do to help your guests remember your wedding day even more.
Prepare a welcome bag for your guests. Wedding welcome bags are popular right now and guests adore them! It's not necessary to go overboard with welcome bags either. Making your guests' days as comfortable as possible can be done by giving them a simple tote filled with snacks, a bottle of water, and perhaps a pair of comfortable shoes for when the dance floor opens.
Offer pre-ceremony drinks. If you're getting married in the summer, providing a cool welcome drink can help the day start off well since guests might be waiting for 30 minutes before the ceremony.
Keep your guests warm. Planning a fall or winter wedding? To ensure that guests are kept warm while you exchange vows, leave a few blankets or pashminas at the ceremony venue's entrance.
Protect their eyes. Offer your guests a pair of sunglasses if your ceremony will be held outside so they can see everything clearly. The price of this fun wedding extra will be lower if you purchase them in bulk.
Plan for midnight munchies. Bring some sodas and light snacks out later in the night to keep your guests' bellies full if you anticipate that the majority of them will be dancing and enjoying themselves until the wee hours of the morning. Bonus points: bring in a food truck with sweet and savory options for your guests.
Give them a treat to take home. Send your guests home with a tasty treat, like a cupcake, as a way of saying "thank you." Add this option to your midnight munchie menu!
Organize a charging station. Set up a phone charging station at your reception to ensure that your guests can continue to capture fun videos and photos of your special day.
To make your guests' experience on your wedding day truly memorable, you don't need to go to a lot of trouble or spend a lot of money; it's the little things that count.
