A wedding day is a special event. Obviously, if you’re getting married, then you know that your wedding is going to be the best day of your life. But what about your guests? Your friends and family are the most important people in your life, but they’ve probably been to weddings before. They’ll probably go to weddings in the future, too. What’s going to make your special day stick out in their heads? Let’s try to answer that question. Here’s how to create a wedding day that every guest will remember.
Hire a wedding planner
You probably have amazing ideas for your wedding, but you might not know how to make those amazing ideas happen. That’s why you should hire a wedding planner. You can create a book of ideas to help your planner. That way, they’ll know what you expect of your big day. Obviously, that doesn’t mean you should leave the planning entirely up to them; your input will be important. The planner will want to know that they’re doing everything in the way you imagined. The purpose of hiring a professional is to impress every single guest with your expertly-crafted wedding. Of course, you might want some inspiration so you have a good book full of ideas to give to your planner. The following suggestions might help.
Provide memorable entertainment
Your ceremony might be very traditional and relatively similar to every other wedding your guests have attended, but the reception is your opportunity to truly surprise people. You need to provide memorable entertainment for them. A wedding band will provide a nice ambience, and the best man’s speech will probably receive a few laughs, but you can go further than that. Perhaps you could hire some retro cars to transport your guests from the main wedding venue to the reception venue. You might even want to hire a bouncy castle for the kids.
Perhaps you could hire a famous artist to play at your wedding reception. You don’t always need a lot of money to do this; many big artists will play for a reasonable price if they know that one or both of the people getting married is a fan of them. After all, it’s good publicity. You might want to consider photo booth hire, too. That could make your special day more memorable for guests. They’ll be able to entertain themselves by taking silly pictures together in a booth. You could even provide funny props and costumes for people to wear in their photos. This will give them something tangible to take home from your wedding, and that’ll help them to remember it for years to come.
Serve delicious food.
If you want to keep your guests happy, you just need to serve delicious food. Obviously, the rest of the advice in this article will help to make your wedding memorable, but people will definitely remember what they ate. Even if you manage to put together a beautiful wedding with amazing entertainment options, people will struggle to enjoy themselves if they’re hungry or simply unsatisfied with the dining options. You need to ask guests about dietary requirements before your wedding. You also need to put out a varied spread of food so that people stay well-fed throughout the day. You could even hire cocktail servers to carry around plates of sandwiches and other snacks for people. Maybe you could even give guests welcome baskets full of locally-sourced food and drinks. That would be a nice touch.
