Some of the things you probably consider as silly and unimportant are what makes weddings memorable and fun. As much as the wedding is about you as the bride and groom, it’s important to make the event pleasing to your guests, by considering all the essential details.
Throwing an epic party will have your guests talking about it for many years to come and you’ll be surprised to see some of them coming to you for wedding planning tips.
The first thing you should have in mind is what the wedding experience should be as a whole. Sitting for more than two hours is not pleasing at all, so you need to come up with ways of making the event interactive. In addition, the playlist should cater for all the guests present at your event. Jazz music might be good, but, it won’t fill the dance floor after dinner, a professional DJ can play all the genres of music to keep your guests dancing.
Here are 5 of my ideas for your wedding;
Have a good wedding programme
The stationery you use for your wedding creates different impressions about your wedding. Good stationery has interesting details about the couple, ceremonial proceedings and photos as well. That way, they get to know more about you as the Weds to be.
Use of Apps
Nowadays, there are many apps you can choose from for your wedding. Through apps such as Instagram, you can share your amazing wedding photos with your friends and family. Additionally, you can also ask your guests to share their photos using a particular hash tag.
Issuing gifts such as welcome bags
Some of your guests probably traveled from far to witness your big day; the least you can do is appreciate their efforts by sending them gift bags, wines, snacks etc and a guidebook to their hotel rooms.
Greet your guests personally
It’s important that you great each of your guests personally at your wedding. Whether it’s chatting over a cocktail, dinner or on the dance floor, the few minutes you spend with them prove beyond reasonable doubt that you care about them.
Have a good seating arrangement
It doesn’t matter whether your reception dinner is a family serving style, plated meal or buffet, a good seating arrangement is essential in ensuring your guests have an awesome time. One of the ways to do so is by grouping people who have common backgrounds and interests even though they haven’t met before. That way, they’ll have something to talk about.
