Many of your guests will travel from all over the country to come and witness you and your fiance tie the knot. Along the way they will spend a good bit of money on travel expenses, hotel accommodations, and food. A nice way to say thank you is to pamper your guests in small ways that can make a big impact!
One way to say thank you to all the out of town guests even before the wedding begins is with welcome baskets. My favorite way to create these baskets is to theme them for the state or area of the wedding and leave them in the hotel room for when they arrive.
Another way to pamper your guests is during the ceremony. I love this idea of offering handkerchiefs for guests. Not only does this help with happy tears and “pampers” your guests but it doubles as the perfect keepsake wedding favor.
You can also give your guests small items to keep them comfortable during your ceremony. My favorite is personalized sunglasses! Or you can give umbrellas, fans, or blankets depending on the weather to keep them cool or warm.
If you want guests to dance the night away, combat those tired and hurting feet by offering flip flops!
During the reception a small gesture to pamper guests is to make an emergency basket for the guests. Include mints, band aids, medicine, etc for all the mishaps that could happen! Getting married at Glendalough Manor? You won’t need to worry about making these baskets because they provide them for you!
Don’t forget about the guys! Have a cigar bar at the reception and they may never want to leave!
