When planning your guest list, will you ignore your most adored out-of-town relatives just because you have no idea how to manage? Of course not, you will definitely want them to attend your wedding. If you think that sending invitation cards to your out-of-town guests IS enough then you are wrong. Your out-of-town wedding guests deserve extra care because not only are they a part of your celebrations but they’ve travelled all the way to you. They might have travelled a long way to be a part of your happiness, so it is your responsibility as a good host that you will ease them, make them feel at home and provide them with facilities so that they won’t regret coming.
There are some very important points to keep in mind while hosting your out of town wedding guests:
When deciding the accommodation, you should bear in mind that the accommodation should be near the wedding venue. This will save a lot of time for your guest to arrive at your ceremony. You can also give them some recommendations regarding hotels and guesthouses. To prevent yourself from inconvenience, start booking the hotel rooms as early as you can. Make sure the hotel offers services at reasonable cost.
Most of the hotels or guest houses provide transportation services otherwise you can hire a rental car service for them. Ask the hotel management first before arranging transportation for your out of town wedding guests. Whatever you do, you need to communicate with your guests about the transportation service available so they can plan accordingly.
This is the essential one. As an outstanding host, you need to communicate every detail of your wedding ceremony to your guests. So that they won’t feel left out.
You should show some love for your out of town guests by giving them a token of appreciation. This can include any gift- wedding souvenir with the thank you card. This is also the opportunity for you to show your artistic skills. Put your thinking hat on and start working on the gifts as soon as possible.
To spend some time with your out of town guest, plan a perfect welcome dinner. It does not have to be huge just sufficient for spending a quality time with your relatives.
To make your out-of-town wedding guests feel special, you need to carry out these important things.
