All the big stuff is planned and decided…that’s the easy part… It’s all the details that will be the hardest decision because all of these little items adds up first. Think about what’s most important to you, think about the overall guest experience, don’ forget about these items: cake, transportation, party favors, unity ceremony, programs, menu cards, invitations, escort cards, exit items…and all other details. We would love to offer some information, guidance and a few tips.
o Think about what kind of cake or dessert you want to serve because most people will be expecting some form of sweets at your wedding.
o Don’t forget about activities for cocktail hour. Have you thought about a Casino Party, Lounge Furniture, Yard Games, Bounce Houses, or do you have a lot of children and want to provide childcare.
o If you are serving alcohol, consider shuttles to and from the hotel and don’t forget to plan your getaway car too.
o Are you planning a grand entrance to the ceremony or reception?
o There are so many fun party favors: photo booths, popcorn bars, candy buffets, koozies, local treats, ice cream karts to name a few.
o Ask your officiant about different unity ceremonies.
o We highly recommend menu cards to tell guests about what they are going to eat.
o Do you know the difference between an escort card and a place card? We do… ask us why these are so important!?!?!
o Offer signage at the cake/dessert area and bar/beverage area.
o How will you greet your guests? Who will tell each of your guest goodnight?
o Have you thought about welcome bags at the hotels?
o Speaking of hotels, do you know how to do room blocks?
o Have your thought about your grand exit from the reception (fireworks, sparklers, bubbles, ribbon wands, glow sticks, pom-poms, etc.)?
