Guest Requests: Everything they Really Want at your Wedding
Being a guest for a wedding can be tough sometimes. Between travel expenses, taking time off and all of the details in between, being a wedding guest can sometimes be as stressful as actually being involved in the wedding. As a bride to be, try to keep these details in mind when you are planning your big day in order to have your guests raving about your wedding for years to come!
-Minimal Maps: Obviously, there is some travel involved when it comes to attending a wedding. Getting to the city or location isn’t usually an issue but when you ask your guests to move to from site to site for different parts of the wedding, it can become a little tiresome. Try looking for a wedding venue that has ceremony and reception in the same location. Having a hotel close by is always an added plus!
-Great Entertainment: Not everyone will cut a rug or dance until they are asked to leave but it is safe to say all of your guests will be hoping for a DJ or band that will be able to connect with guests from ages 5 to 50. Let your MC read the crowd and do his job of bringing life to your group.
-Organized Timeline: The average person’s attention span is about 10 minutes. If cake cutting takes too long or the best man’s speech lays out your life story, chances are, people have moved on to something else. From post ceremony photos to bridal party introductions, keep it sweet and simple.
