Making Your Guests Feel Comfortable

Your wedding day will probably be one of the most important days of your life and most couples want their day to stand out from the rest. Adding details to your wedding day that are customised to you and your partner is the perfect way to make your day more special and unique. To help make your wedding as unique as you are, we have crafted together our top tips for customising your wedding day.

There are a handful of things to keep in mind when thinking about guests’ comfort on your wedding day. While it is the bride and grooms day, making sure guests are treated like royalty while they celebrate is important.

Tips for outdoor weddings:

Outdoor weddings provide a beautiful backdrop and a fun atmosphere, but they can also bring unpredictable weather. Summer weddings have the blessing of warmer evenings but the heat can be overwhelming if guests are seated outside, so offering a hand fans for guests is an easy solution. Another way to protect guests in the heat is offering sunscreen or sunglasses. Winter weddings can bring similar changes in weather, so having umbrellas and throws for those outside can be an easy way to make sure guests are comfortable.

Tips for guest activities:

Some brides can be worried if their guests are really having a good time at their wedding. Offering activities for guests of all ages can put a bride’s mind at ease. For those who plan to have children at the wedding, a craft table or simple games are a popular trend, such as activity or colouring books. Even the older guests would get involved in these. Outdoor weddings are perfect to offer lawn bowls or croquet as an easy way to keep guests involved.

Tips for the reception:

Involving guests in certain phases of the reception is a nice way to end the day. Song requests cards can be a great way to make sure everyone can hear their favourite.
