What is a wedding without your family and friends? Having the people that love, support and care about you two the most at your wedding is one of the most special feelings in the world! However, a lot of couples get so tied up in wedding planning that they forget about incorporating elements into their wedding that will make their guests feel at home. Not only that, but elements that will create memories that will last a lifetime! We know how busy wedding can be, so that’s why we are here today and have done the work for you!
Here are the 5 ways to make your wedding more memorable and comfortable for your guests:
Personal Guest Book

One of the first things your guests will be looking for is the guest book. With this being such an important element for your wedding day and the days that follow, you want to make sure it is special! Signing a book with a paper and pen is very traditional and there has been a major shift in the last few years to stray away from this tradition. We are seeing more and more couples opt for a more personal guest book, which we absolutely love! Not only does it add a unique touch to your wedding day, but it also helps your guests feel a little bit closer to the happy couple!

Traditionally, couples would just include wedding favors and call it a day. However, we suggest adding in little elements on your wedding day that shows your guest you’re thankful they attended and that you care about them! For example, if you’re having a wedding during the colder months, then adding in some blankets for your guests is not only kind, but adds an element of love for your guests! If you’re worried about fitting it into your budget, don’t worry! There are many options out there that are very inexpensive and buying in bulk can help reduce the cost as well. It’ll be worth it to have your guests walk away saying “wow, that was so beautiful,” and with warm hearts!

Unless you’re only inviting family members, not everyone at your wedding will know one another. Having ice breakers is a great way to help your guests interact and mingle! It will also add a unique touch that will sure to get you smiles from your guests! Some of our favorites include giant jenga, giant checkers, and ceremony program quizzes! There are a lot of fun options out there will help your guests become friends!
Along with welcoming gifts, wedding favors (or otherwise known as the parting gifts) will be one of the last things that your guests see and remember. Customizing or adding a personal twist on this will be sure to leave a lasting impression on your family and friends! Add in a little note, place their name on the item or even add in your wedding day details. It’s all about the little items that add up to big gestures!

Add a Timeline

Each wedding flows differently, so adding in your own wedding day timeline will help your guests know what is expected throughout the day. This will ensure that your guests know what time and where certain events are happening. It also helps show that you care about your guests and want everything to go smoothly for not only you, but for them as well. The last thing you want is a lost guest at your wedding (that wouldn’t be good)!
With these tips, your wedding guests are sure to feel comfortable during your wedding day and to walk away with warm hearts! After all, your guests are making a big effort in attending your wedding day, so you want to make sure it is worthwhile for them. There are many different options for the options listed above, but in the long run just remember that it’s the little things in life that make for some of the happiest moments!
