How To Make Sure Everyone Has Fun At Your Wedding

March 27, 2017 by Linda DiProperzio
shefinds | Weddings

You’ve spent months planning your wedding day and you want to make sure your guests have the time of their lives. Paying attention to these seven details will put you on the right track.

Make sure everyone is comfortable.

Comfort is key, so if your guests are too hot or too cold during your event, that is all they will focus on. Think about what you need at the venue to make sure everyone feels their best, whether it’s plenty of shade for a summer wedding or heaters for a winter event.

Play great music.

Your guest list will likely span many age groups, so make sure your band or DJ covers a wide spectrum of tunes during the reception. The goal is to have almost everyone take a spin on the dance floor at some point during the night.

 

It’s also always a nice touch to add a little something extra to your wedding entertainment, such as a photo booth, professional dancers, a magician (if kids are invited) and the like.

Serve plenty of food and drinks.

Hungry guests are unhappy guests, so make sure you have plenty of food throughout the event—and that there are also options for guests with dietary restrictions. And while serving alcohol is a personal choice for the bride and groom, if you are going to serve, make sure you have an open bar. No one wants to have to pay for their drinks at a wedding.

Give clear direction.

Having a strict dress code for your wedding? Make sure you let everyone know well in advance of the big day. You don’t want anyone to show up and feel uncomfortable.

 

Another important tip: when you have a large gap between the ceremony and cocktail hour, you lose momentum during the event. Guests get bored and hungry, and that’s not how you want them to come into your reception. If you must have a gap to take photos, plan for something to keep your guests occupied during that time, such as providing some type of entertainment or a tour of your venue if appropriate.

Plan a few surprises.

Try to find a way to surprise your guests that they’ll really love and probably not expect, such as a specialty food truck in the parking lot as they leave the wedding or an appearance by your college marching band.
