Your Out of Town Guests Will Be So Happy If You Do These Things!

Inviting out of town guests is a great thing to do if you want these people to be by your side on your Big Day. However, it comes with a certain kind of responsibility – especially if you know these people haven’t visited your wedding location before.

How to make your out of town guests feel really happy with your wedding day? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  •      Arrange their transportation. A shuttle bus to take your guests to and from the airport, as well as to and from the wedding ceremony and reception – now, that’s something your guests will definitely appreciate! Moreover, you will also make sure they aren’t late for the wedding – so it’s a win-win situation, really.
  •      Offer them accommodation options. You are not obliged to pay for your out of town guests’ accommodation. However, you should do everything in your power to make this trip feel as smooth as possible for them. Offer them a list of accommodation options, so that they can choose whatever suits their style and budget.
  •      Welcome them with a pretty gift. A welcome bag or box can really put a smile on your guests’ faces! You don’t even have to go overboard with this: a basket filled with delicious local goodies (such as a special type of honey you can only find in that area) will definitely satisfy your out of town friends and relatives!

Why Plan a Daytime Wedding – and How?

Most weddings end late in the evening and even late at night. But what if we told you this “classic” wedding timeline can be adjusted into a daytime event as well?

Why plan a daytime wedding – and how to do it perfectly? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  •        One of the main reasons to love a daytime wedding idea is that you will spend less than you would otherwise do with an evening event. Also, a daytime wedding gives you the rest of the day “off”, meaning you can spend it in true bliss with your loved one.
  •        In terms of food, alcohol and entertainment, daytime weddings are only slightly different than evening weddings. For instance, you could serve a brunch buffet or even a seated luncheon, all paired with light wines. And yes, you should definitely include entertainment, music, and games as well!
  •        Since you will most likely wrap your wedding before 4 pm, you should also make sure to wake up earlier (your ceremony will most likely start at 11 am). Also, you will most probably have to skip the cocktail hour as well – so talk to your photographer and schedule your photo session for another date or time (e.g. after the reception, the second day after the wedding, etc.).
  •        Last, but not least, remember that you can make your daytime wedding feel really elegant and formal too. However, keep in mind that a formal daytime attire will never look as glamorous as a formal evening attire (but, as the bride, you are still more than allowed to wear a very stunning wedding dress!).

This Is How You Send Proper Wedding Invitations

Your wedding invitations are more than just pieces of paper. They are the formal introduction into your Big Day – so it is only natural to want everything about them to be perfect. Of course, their design plays a huge role – but maybe even more important than that is the way you send and address the invitations.

How to do it the proper, etiquette-friendly way? We have some tips for you – continue reading if you want to learn more.

  • Address the RSVPs with diplomacy. If you don’t want to invite plus-ones or children, make sure the guests will understand your hint (for instance, address the RSVPs with “Mr. and Mrs. X”, instead of the “X Family”, which would involve the kids too). Remember, even under these circumstances, there may still be guests who will add more people to their RSVPs – so be prepared to make some delicate phone calls.
  • Yes, you can and should invite people who can’t come. Sending them an invitation is a heartfelt way of showing them you care about their presence at your wedding. Plus, an invitation with a link to your wedding website will make it easier for these guests to send a gift if they want to.
  • Online invitations can save you a lot of money and time (not to mention they make the RSVP administration really easy). However, they are not always suitable for the actual wedding (since it will most likely be a bit more formal) – but they can work just fine for the pre-wedding events.

Your Wedding Menu NEEDS to Be Very Well Planned

Planning a Georgia wedding is almost never as easy as 1-2-3 – especially when you want to make sure every single guest will be truly happy with the experience the event offers.

Of course, food is an important element of the aforementioned experience, so you should plan a wedding menu capable of satisfying as many of your guests as possible. Here are some tips to help you do this:

  •       Serve hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail hour. Drinks on an empty stomach were never a good idea – and if you add this to the fact that a bunch of delicious snacks will actually boost everyone’s mood and energy for the big party, you have all the reasons to serve something your guests can munch on at the cocktail hour.
  •       Serve something as a late-night snack too. Your guests will get tired from all the dancing, so why not charge their batteries with a (potentially “sinful”) late-night snack? Doughnuts, Belgian fries, pizza – they can all be included in your wedding and they will definitely bring a smile on your guests’ faces.
  •     Try to accommodate everyone. Satisfying everyone with your wedding menu can be difficult – but it’s worth it. Thus, you should try to find vegetarian, lactose-free and gluten-free options for them as well. For instance, you could create separate menus for them and ask them in their RSVP what they prefer to eat – this way, they will be served with the foods that actually suit their diet.
