The day when you say ‘I do’ to the special person in your life in an elegant white dress will be one of the best moments of your life. It is certain that you will keep on rewinding this magical moment with your loved one for the rest of your lives. So, it is certain that you would want everything to be perfect and well organized.
You might be planning to make your wedding an unforgettable experience for the guests too. Although your wedding planner, parents, siblings, and close friends will keep on telling you that your wedding day is all about you and your spouse, it is reasonable to think about the ones who show up at the venue to celebrate the occasion also. Obviously, you should make a nice gesture and show them how lucky are you both to have them at your wedding.
If you want to leave a lasting impression on the guests and make them feel happy, then you will need to consult with your wedding planners and do something unique for your guests. If you are wondering where to begin, then below are a few simple yet effective tips to help you get started. It is significant to note that these small gestures may seem simple, but the impression they will leave on your guests will be long lasting.
If you want to ensure that your guests make it to the wedding venue without taking any wrong turns or experiencing any hassles, then you should consider adding a little route map on the back of the wedding invitation. Some couples often fail to give the right directions to the wedding venue to their guests. As a result, guests end up wandering through the streets and even fail to reach on time for the wedding ceremony.
Another creative and innovative thing you could is to set up signposts all along the way to your wedding venue. Hang a few balloons with the signboards, and write the name of the bride and groom on the boards.
Welcome Bags and Personalized Fans
Giving a simple yet elegantly designed welcome bag to the guests and requesting one of your close friends or family members to greet them at the wedding venue will bring a warm welcoming feel. You can add a few essentials in the welcome bags such as aspirins and water bottles, etc. Apart from that, you could also give a welcome snack to the guests along with the bags.
Couples who are planning to host an outdoor wedding ceremony during warm summer months should take note of the fact that it can get pretty hot. If you want to make your guests feel comfortable, you should arrange some personalized fans for them. Having these in a small basket placed near the entrance would even add a rustic appeal to the wedding venue.
Champagne Bar and Food Trucks
If you are planning to keep your wedding casual and simple, then you might not be planning to have a formal cocktail bar. If that is the case, then you should consider organizing a “Do It Yourselves” fun self-serve cocktail bar. The luxury of pouring the drinks of their own liking and trying different cocktails will certainly delight your guests. However, you will need to ask one of your close friends to manage the bar and ensure that everything is under control.
Another exciting thing you could do is arrange food and snack trucks. Food trucks have become a common sight in wedding ceremonies these days. They are trendy and they add a wide variety of food items to your wedding menu. You can either ask your friends to bring the food truck during the cocktail hour or at the end of the wedding dance. However, it is best to seek the advice of your wedding planner before you do so.
Several couples often fail to pay attention to the fact that some guests will be bringing their kids along with them to the wedding ceremony. Most kids tend to get bored and frustrated during the wedding ceremony, which means that you will need to find a way to keep them occupied. For that, you can assign a few simple tasks for kids, such as bringing flowers to the bridesmaids or distributing the personalized fans to the guests, etc.
If any one of the guests is bringing toddlers to the event, then you should ensure that you have a qualified babysitter to take care of them during the ceremony. This will allow the guests to enjoy the wedding to the fullest. Moreover, they will also appreciate the gesture.
