Hosting a wedding is a big deal! Everyone wants to create an awesome, unique and unforgettable wedding experience for their wedding guests. According to The Knot’s annual survey for 2016, one of the things that a top priority for couples was creating an unforgettable experience.
The pressure gets turned up a notch when it comes to planning a destination wedding, half destination wedding (when one side of the family has to travel), or a wedding with a lot of out of town guests attending.
Due to wedding guests traveling to their wedding, couples want to go above and beyond to make sure the traveling, time and money are worth while. Creating an unforgettable guest experience is one way to say thank you to your loved ones who made the effort to attend your big day. To help you plan your perfect guest experience below are our top 3 way to deliver an unforgettable wedding experience for your wedding guests.
- Add Local Flair – When people are traveling to your wedding you want to make sure you give them a local experience. Whether that be serving crab cakes in Maryland or having a second line in New Orleans (the photo above is from Kelly and my second line when we got married in Nola in 2015).
- Have Great Dancing Music – Whether you have a DJ or a band the important thing is to make sure they play music people can, and enjoy, dancing to! We have all been at those wedding where the DJ (or band) is playing good music but not dancing music… When everyone is on the dance floor, you know you’ve delivering a great experience at your wedding reception.
- Use WedTexts – WedTexts acts like your guests’ very own personal assistant during your wedding weekend. Simply schedule reminder messages for each event (which takes less than 5 minutes with your WedTexts Blueprint), and then relax knowing your guests will get helpful text reminders with the start time and location for each of your wedding events. The best part, all the addresses, dates, times and web addresses turn into clickable links! There is no app for your guests to download, and you will keep them from having to hold onto any paper information or searching for your wedding website during your wedding weekend.
Trust us, your guests will love it!
