05 Jan 8 Ways To Make Your Wedding Guests Feel Special
Your wedding is the most memorable moment in your life. That’s why you try to make it as special as you possibly can, but in order to call your wedding a truly spectacular event, you need to be able to say that everyone had real fun.
Filipinos are typically known for their hospitality. Pretty good at making guests feel at home, but how do pull it off in a tight wedding setting?
When you have two to three guests at home, accommodating them for the occasion, you can already make your guests feel that you’re happy to see them.
However, when you have about 100 guests all waiting to be greeted in your wedding venue, making everyone feel appreciated becomes a bit challenging.
So, here are some 8 simple ways to make sure all your wedding guests are comfortable and feel special on your wedding.
1. Create A Wedding Website In Consideration Of Your Guests
Keep your wedding guests in mind as you create your website. Your website copy should tell them whatever it is they need to know. Tell them about the city where you’re having your wedding. Give them tips on how to efficiently plan their trip (if need be).
You may want to share some of you favorite restaurants so that if they plan to stay for a couple more days, they’ll have an idea where to eat their meals. You can even upload a map to your wedding venue. With that, your wedding guests won’t have to go on stops just to ask for directions.
On top of that, you may also want to add some wedding day details. For instance, you can tell them if your wedding ceremony is held indoors or outdoors. You can tell them if they still need to take a long walk from the parking lot before getting to your actual wedding venue.
Your wedding website is also a good place to tell your wedding guests if you’re paying for the parking lot or if they have to cover it themselves. With that, they can stop by an ATM on their way to the wedding venue.
Most importantly, you shouldn’t forget to put in details like what time the wedding ceremony will start, not to mention the proper wedding attire. Wedding websites can also do e-invite for RSVP.
2. Place A Welcome Sign Upon Your Wedding Guests Arrival At The Hotel
Do you plan to book a hotel room for your wedding guests? If yes, you might want to consider putting up a welcome sign for them. No need for it to be too fancy. Just make it short and sweet so that you can paint a smile on your guests’ faces when they arrive at your wedding destination.
This might seem like a small gesture, but it means a lot to your wedding guests who probably spent hours looking for your wedding destination. You never know. Some of them might have even come from faraway towns and went all the way just to attend your wedding.
3. Serve water and refreshments for your wedding guests
Your wedding guests are most likely to be looking to quench their thirst or get some refreshments while waiting for everyone the moment they enter your wedding venue.
With that, make sure to have plenty of water or refreshment in the venue. While wedding venues usually have water storage, you may want to bring some that are on bottles so that guests can carry them wherever they go.
4. Setup A Different Wedding Table For Kids And Adults
While there is no harm for kids in playing and simply having fun, it can make your wedding a bit disorganized.
Adult wedding guests would need a place where they can talk and socialize with each other. That being said, we suggest you set up a separate table for the kids and adults. Besides kids love to be with other kids.
5. Prepare A Charging Station For Your Guests
Your wedding guests would be too busy getting their dresses ready that they might forget their power bank, guests taking photos minute by minute draining their phones.
In that case, you better prepare a charging station so that your guests can keep on taking photos and upload them on social medias. Having a battery drained phone during that special day is a sad sad situation.
6. Bring Some Insect repellent lotion/spray For Your Wedding Guests
In case the venue is outdoor like gardens with tropical plants and fona, it best to prepare insect repellent lotions or spray for your guests. This way, your guests will feel cared and special in such a way.
7. Consider Putting Up A Small Bar In Your Wedding Venue
After the ceremony, there’s bound to be a wedding party and you can’t have a party without booze. This is the most effective way to gather your guests in one section and just keep the spirit flowing.
8. Give Your Wedding Guests Some Surprise Entertainment
Maybe you can hire a band or singer to perform at your wedding. Your wedding guests won’t see it coming.
Recorded music are good too, but nothing beats the excitement and energy brought by a live performance.
