Its no more Bridezilla - Brides and Couples are thinking of their guests more and more. I get asked all the time for ways to make the travel, accommodations, registry and wedding more enjoyable for the guests.
Here are some of my tips:
-Send save the date cards with info on hotel and travel arrangements
-Create a wedding website; put all your information on here including maps and fun things to do around town
-Create a registry that has different types of items on it and different price points; make sure there is an address on file so your guests can ship them directly to you
-Make a welcome bag for all hotel guests; include a welcome letter, directions and some munchies
-If your budget allows provide transportation for guests to ceremony and reception
-If your ceremony will include a joining of religions; explain them in a program
-Do not have a cash bar at the reception
-Do something unexpected; change the scenery from garden cocktails to after party club setting or change the colors from all light pink ceremony to hot pink and red at the reception.
-Make your event personal; show your style and add unique touches as a monogram, your favorite color, food or activity
and lastly make sure you are having fun; guests will follow your lead!
