Book Hotel Rooms

As a common rule of wedding etiquette, the bride and groom are the ones responsible for arranging lodging accommodations for their guests. When arranging rooms for your guests, it is important to consider the location. It is advisable to book accommodation near the venue, or if possible in the venue itself to be more convenient for your guests

Give Welcome Gift Bags

Having to travel to your wedding location can be tiring and stressful. This is why providing a simple trinket that shows appreciation for travelling to the wedding is essential. Aside from chocolates or luxury goodies, you could also include a note thanking your guests for taking the time to be with you on your special day.

Host Welcome and Goodbye Festivities

It is a nice gesture to hold pre- and post-wedding events for your guests as this will make them feel welcome and taken care of. A welcome party and a farewell brunch can be a lovely way to thank your guests for attending your wedding.

Consider Their Comfort
