When it comes to your wedding day, you’re not just celebrating your love story; but inviting your friends and family to be a part of the celebration as well. While you check off your must-haves, make sure you do not forget your guests. A lot of them may be traveling long distances, may have to take time off work and will be spending a lot of money to be a part of your momentous occasion. While most guests may not pay attention to the little details, there are a few things they do really care about.
So, if you want to maximize your wedding planning, here are 5 ways to ensure happy vibes all around.
1. Pick out Great Accommodations
While planning your wedding is time-consuming, hotel accommodation for all your out-of-town guests plays an important role to ensure they are absolutely comfortable. Lodging your guests at the hotel you’re getting married at is a big bonus. Your friends and family can relax and have a good time without worrying about finding their way back to their accommodation.
2. Greet your Guest with a Warm Welcome
You may not be able to greet all your guests upon their arrival, but welcoming them with gift hampers is a great way to let them know you’re delighted to see them.
Fill their bags with savory snacks and sweets if they arrive after dinner or need a mid-afternoon snack post a baraat dance. You can also get a little creative to give out-of-towners a taste of local flavour with Bhakharwadi and Shakkarpaara that are representative of the setting.
3. Plan a Good Seating Arrangement
Guest seating at weddings is vital. And it requires advance planning to ensure the comfort of your guests. When considering a seating arrangement, think about how your guests will experience every phase of your celebration.
Most hotel grand ballrooms, private event facilities, and outdoor venues give you the option to lay your seating as you choose. Always ask the venue if they have a copy of a blank diagram of the space. So you can draw your ideas and find out if they have a recommended setup of the place since they likely have multiple ways to arrange seating.
It is okay to be creative with your seating layout. But you need to ensure enough space is available for your idea. The more complex the seating arrangement is, the more challenging it may be logistically.
4. Select a Wide Variety of Food Items
Feed your guests well! Make sure there’s enough to go around and try not to skimp on appetizers.
The latest food trends with international cuisines and unique exhibits are sizzling up to wedding venues since a while now. Food plays a vital role at weddings and is a great way for people to remember your special day. No matter which part of the world you are in, banquet dining traditions are commonly worked into wedding dinners and receptions to give your occasion added meaning and gravitas.
Laying a spread of delectable dishes from around the world with a lip-smacking food spread and world-class desserts is one thing your guests will remember for a lifetime.
5. Give your Guest Something to Talk About
