Do These 13 Things To Make Guests Happy

Guests will undoubtedly gush over your gown, be amazed by your centerpieces and snap photos of the wedding cake. But give them a charging station for when their phones hit 3% battery power or blister Band-Aids in the bathroom for when their heels start hurting, and your wedding will go down in history with the greats. So our advice: Think about the small things that will really allow them to enjoy and celebrate the day with you. Use the 13 ideas below to impress your guests with that extra little something-something. (Warning: they may not want to leave the party!)

    Be Careful…Giving each guest a DJ request card is not a good idea; have seen this done before. Time is an issue! If you have 100+ guests (or possibly less), not everyone will be able to hear the song they requested. This will not make those that didn’t get to hear their requests happy…in fact you could end up with more unhappy guests. Your DJ should be able to take requests without stopping the music :)

    Six of your thirteen ideas are weather related and for outdoor weddings. Why not just make it one idea? “Keeping your guests comfortable in the elements”. Offering guests a piece of cake to go will double the cost of your cake since guests will be served cake after dinner. I also agree with the previous post about the DJ request cards. Ask your DJ to make an announcement that requests can be made and save money on the extra printing. Guests will ask if they really want to hear a song.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
