What Do You Do With Last Minute Guests?

RSVPs have a very clearly defined role – but sometimes, it doesn’t even matter how much you plan for the perfect wedding day and it doesn’t even matter how easy you make it for guests to send back their RSVPs. Surprise guests are almost bound to happen, and you should be prepared to handle them gracefully.

What do you do when a last minute guest confirms their presence at your wedding? Here are the most essential tips to know:

  •        First and foremost, you announce your coordinator or Maid of Honor. By this moment, they should already have a list of confirmed wedding guests and the seats they are assigned to – so they can easily find a bit of extra room at a table. If an unexpected guest shows up on the actual wedding day, it is important that your Maid of Honor has this list with her, so that she can smoothly handle the situation.
  •        However, if the unexpected guest announces their attendance a few days before the wedding, you should make sure they are provided with an escort card, just like everyone else. Ideally, you should order a few blank ones when you order your day-of stationery. This way, even unannounced guests will have a theme-coordinated escort card to help them navigate the seating chart.
  •       Last, but definitely not least, remember not to let this ruin the wedding day for you. This is a unique moment in your life and you deserve to be fully happy – so take things as they are, season them with a big smile, and enjoy your Big Day!

Use Your Wedding Gown After the Big Day

You may think your wedding dress will lose its meaningfulness or at least its usefulness after the wedding day – but truth be told, just because the wedding is over, it doesn’t mean you have to simply leave your wedding dress aside and never see it again.

On the contrary, most brides find creative and innovative solutions on what to do with their wedding gowns after the Big Day. Here are some examples of what you can do too:

  •         Have one of those spectacular Trash the Dress photo shoots. The pictures that come out of this type of photo shooting are actually breathtaking – and they will definitely add a dash of color and uniqueness to your entire wedding album.
  •        Sell it to someone who wants to wear a designer dress, but cannot afford the full price. Yes, there are a lot of places where you can sell a slightly used wedding dress – and yes, there are a lot of potential clients to reach out to as well.
  •      Donate it to someone who cannot afford a wedding dress at all. Can you imagine how happy that person will be and how grateful they will be for your beautiful gesture?
  •        Recycle it into something to use around the house. You can transform your wedding dress into a christening gown, or even into a quilt you will pass down from generation to generation. Just imagine how amazing you will feel every time you look at this creation and how many gorgeous memories it will bring back!

Your Mom Deserves to Be Included in The Big Day

Your mother is one of the most important people in the world. She is the one who gave you life and took care of you. She is the one thanks to whom you will be there, radiantly walking down the aisle on the Big Day. Of course she deserves to play a very special role in the wedding!

Not sure how to make your mom feel super-special on your wedding day? Here are some ideas you will both love:

·        Play a song dear to her. It may be the song she walked down the aisle on her own wedding day, or a song she used to sing to you when you were little. You can use it for the processional, for the First Dance, or even for a special dance with your mom. It will add so much sentimentalism and beauty to an already magnificent day!
·        Serve her cooking. Of course, your mom doesn’t have to play the caterer for 200 people – but if she has a special recipe, why not bring her into the spotlight with the amazing cookies, muffins, or brownies she bakes? These will taste better than anything in the whole wide world!
·        Organize a special photo shooting with your mom and grandma. Three generations in one picture – now, that’s something anyone would be touched by! There are so many ways to build these photos, so don’t be afraid to be a little creative with this!

Looking for someone who will help you plan the wedding from the very beginning to the moment you make your grand reception exit? Contact B.A. Bride Wedding and Event Planning and we will make sure you are more than happy on this uniquely magical day of your life. Give us a call right now!
