It goes without saying that you will be the centre of attention on your wedding day, but when planning your celebrations, it can be the little things you add in that will make the day even happier and more memorable for your guests.
Here are a few ideas you may wish to consider. . .
Once you have planned your perfect day, it is worth giving some thought to the day your guests will have, after all for you and your partner the day will fly by in a whirlwind, but keeping your guests informed and happy will make the day more relaxing and enjoyable for everyone.
Have a clear timetable of the days events on display, so that your guests are aware what is happening throughout the day.
This is especially important if you have elderly guests attending or young families with small children to consider.
If you are having a drinks reception after your wedding ceremony, it’s a good idea to have canapés served as it can be a long time until your wedding breakfast, your guests will need something to eat to keep them going especially if they have travelled a distance to the venue.
Have some seating available for guests who may find it uncomfortable to stand for long periods of time.
Giving your guests an unexpected surprise during the celebrations is a great way to increase the fun and enjoyment of the day.
One idea is to bring in an act during your wedding breakfast .Singing waiters are a fabulous way to create a fun atmosphere and get your guests singing along!
The Little Extras
The small touches that make all the difference are really worth the effort – if there are little ones attending you could include a small activity pack on their place setting instead of a wedding favour.
Another great idea is to have a sweet stall set up in the evening reception area, this will be popular with children and adults alike!
A basket of toiletries and essential items in the ladies cloakroom is also a great idea , you can include items like deodorant, mints, and tissues. Not forgetting plasters for sore feet or even flip flops for when the high heels are discarded on the dance floor!
Chill Out Zone
For those guests who don’t want to dance all night long, you may wish to provide a quieter area with seating. This will be appreciated by older guests, who may wish to sit and have a chat, and also by parents of small children who may appreciate some quiet time away from the main party.
