It’s your wedding and it’s all about you and your hubby, but you should also consider your guests. You want them to enjoy themselves at your wedding and reception, and it should be memorable for them as well.
Provide some simple flip flops for guests to put on after the wedding and formal reception. They will appreciate the comfortable footwear and it will encourage more people to get up, dance, and have a fun time!
Place different props that match your theme in a variety of creative locations (trees, sign in table, photo booth, etc.) for guests to have something to do when not eating and dancing.
Place to go boxes under the catering table to bring out after the cake has been cut. These are perfect for guests who didn’t get a chance to try it when it was served, or to help get rid of the leftovers.
If there are children, put juice boxes on a little table so they can grab one themselves. Children don’t always have the patience to wait in a drink line, and this will ensure they aren’t drinking soda, for those whose parents would prefer they didn’t.
After the meal part of the reception is over, have the caterers bring out small late night snacks for guests to grab later, if needed.
Place bags of mints at every place setting as an extra party favor and to freshen everyone’s breath after eating. Your single guests will definitely appreciate this!
Lastly, make sure you thank each and every one of your guests for attending and/or bringing a gift. You can attach tags to party favors, gift bags, or use mementos that are related to your wedding.
