Everyone wants their wedding day to be the best it can be -- for themselves and their guests. But what do guests really care about? What makes a wedding truly unforgettable for guests? Find out what you can do to throw the party of a lifetime!
Pick Your Venue Carefully
While we all love a rustic barn or National Park venue, they uneven terrain can be hazardous for guests. Nothing is worse than feeling your high heel sink into wet dirt. This is especially true for any of your older guests or guests with disabilities that might have more trouble getting around than most. That’s not to say that you can’t take advantage of these beautiful outdoor locations for your big day. Just give your guests a heads up and be sure to have a backup plan for your guests with mobility limitations.
Have Stellar Food
Good wedding food can be hard to come by, but when you find it, you’ve hit the jackpot! After all, everyone loves a delicious meal. If you want to serve up a standout meal for your big day, considering hosting your big day at a restaurant or offering up a menu with some unique touches. For example, consider hiring some food trucks to pull up outside of your venue to serve up a variety of foods from around the world. Extra tip: Dessert bars are always a hit!
Don’t Skimp on the Bar
For most families, having a well-stocked open bar is a great way to get the party started -- and keep it going all night long. Dedicating a good portion of your budget to an open bar with a wide variety of beer, wine, and liquor will be a much-appreciated investment on the part of your guests.
Create a Wicked Playlist
Whether you’re hiring a band or a DJ or are just simply pressing “play” on your Spotify playlist, having a well-curated list of music that appeals to all of your guests will help make your wedding day one for the record books! Selecting songs that resonate with everyone will have even the most dance-averse among us hitting the dance floor.
Add A Personal Touch
Whether you want to write a handwritten, customized note to each and every guest on their escort card or customized favors, adding a personal touch is a great way to engage guests on the big day. It’s also a fantastic and fun way to make them feel appreciated. After all, they’re sharing one of the biggest days of your life with you -- let them know how much you care!
