Weddings can be a fantastic family affair as relatives come from far and wide to celebrate your special day. Before they arrive, it is crucial to consider how to make their stay comfortable and full of great memories. Your out-of-town wedding guests are investing their love, time, and money into your nuptials. Knowing this, means that you take the time to consider how to be thoughtful, inviting and great hosts.
Sending save the date cards in the mail that include local hotel accommodations is a great way to reach out to your friends and family. When doing this, aim for six months in advance, so your guests can plan accordingly. You may even slip in special travel rates to assist them in getting to you at the best possible price.
Social media can also help get the information to everyone. Making your own wedding website can be a fast and easy way to include details that you want all your upcoming guests to know. Keep the wedding weekend simple and list things like time and place of the rehearsal dinner, registry documents, wedding cocktail party location and time, local doctors and hospitals, stores, and events that pertain to their stay, and specifically, your celebration. Another thing you might want to include are local attractions you think your guests may enjoy. From children’s museums to fancy restaurants, you should try to list something for everyone.
Having a wedding itinerary delivered to the concierge will help everyone stay organized and in sync. If you have a friend or family member that needs special accommodations, be sure to consider that and make appropriate arrangements ahead of time. The last thing you want is someone having an allergic reaction or a terrible fall in the restroom. Don’t forget to try to book transportation needed to help your guests get from the hotel to your venue. Remember the sacrifice these loved ones are making for you. So, while you’re dancing, cutting cake, and toasting at the reception, also remember to acknowledge their presence. W
