Your wedding is your special day, but that doesn’t mean it can’t also be a special day for your guests. Treating your guests can be a great way of showing your appreciation – some of them may have travelled from afar to get there. Having happy guests also means that you’ll be happier and you can all look back on the event fondly. Here are just five ways to treat your guests at your wedding.
Get creative with entertainment
Every wedding needs a DJ, but why not look into other forms of entertainment too? You could consider hiring a live band for instance. Sites such as https://www.alivenetwork.com/hirelivemusic/bands-for-weddings-in?region=North%20West are great for finding bands in your area. You could also consider hiring a string quartet to play during the ceremony for a more traditional touch. Aside from music, you could also look into fireworks, a magician, a children’s entertainer and even a performing catering service (you could hire a chef to cook and perform at everyone’s table!).
Offer some free drinks
To help everyone spend less on drinks, you could consider offering a few free drinks. This could include a champagne reception, laying out a table with some jugs on it or placing a couple bottles of drink on each table. Alternatively, you could out some money behind the bar so that everyone’s first few drinks are free.
Buy some flip-flops and umbrellas
Buying some flip-flops for your guests could give all the women the option to change out of their heels when they’re feeling uncomfortable. Loading up on umbrellas meanwhile could be worthwhile in case it rains, allowing guests to shelter themselves from the rain (this could be particularly worthwhile if you’re having an outdoor wedding). You can bulk buy umbrellas at sites like https://www.susino.co.uk/other/wholesale.
Keep the kids occupied
If there’s likely to be lots of kids coming to your wedding, it’s worth considering some forms of entertainment to keep them happy (which will also keep the parents happy). You could buy a few toys such as skipping ropes, frisbees, bubble blowers and hula hoops and create a kid’s play area. Alternatively, you could hire a bouncy castle. On top of this, you could consider making some sweet cones or even supplying a chocolate fountain. There’s even the option of hiring a kid’s entertainer to do a magic show or offer face-painting.
Give your guests goodie bags
You could also treat your guest by giving them goodie bags to take away. These can be placed on each table and could contain small items such as scented candles, soaps, sweets, kids’ toys and a thank you note. If you’ve got the time and patience, you could even cater each bag’s contents to each guest so that’s it’s personalised.
