How To Not Make Your Wedding A Burden For Your Guests?

Here are a few suggestions as answer to the above question…

  • The date – the date of your wedding is very important for you. But it’s also important for your loved ones and guests. If you have cousins or friends living overseas, then the holiday season will be very apt for an important event as such. Once you have decided on a date, go ahead and send a little “Save the date” message to those loved ones who’s lives are always busy and hectic. They too will need to adjust their schedules to make it for your big day; so giving them plenty of time to do so will make sure they do not feel inconvenienced, or worse, missing your special day all together…!
    • The venue – it’s true that in the case of the venue, you are priority. It should be a location that is special to you; as it’s you who should have the happiest memories of the big day. However, if you choose a venue that is hard to get to, or a venue that your guests will have to travel for days to just get to, you might have to provide wedding accommodation Batesford, or at least have a few options for them to choose from. Also, it’s highly important that you choose a venue with adequate and safe parking…
      • The time – if you have selected a weekday for your big day, chances are, unlike you, your guests will have to go to work and school the very next day. In this case, having a ceremony that start in the later part of the day, then continues into the night can be a little inconvenient. Choose a lunch ceremony instead.
        • The overnight plan – if you have guests coming from a distance for your big day, or if you are planning on hosting two parties over the weekend, or even if you are planning on having a night wedding, it’s important that you make sure your guests have a proper place to sleep at. Wedding party accommodation in Geelong is easy enough to organize; just make sure the hotels are not further than a 15 minutes drive to the venue. Remember, if your reception party goes into the night, your guests will be heading to bed pretty late…
          • The gifts – we understand that this is not something you would want your guests to think of as a burden. In the case of the gifts they’d bring you, have a gift list to make it easier on themand try to keep the things fairly inexpensive. If you want, you could even request that your guests don’t gift you anything…! And in the case of door gifts, be careful with your choice. Don’t make it something common; like an ornament. This will only clutter up their home and be an inconvenience. Little potted plants are a cute idea; but this too is a little risky, as your guests will have to take care of itso select a plant that needs little attention.
