Hello + Happy Thursday! Today we’re talking about how to welcome guests to your wedding. When you’re a wedding guest, it feels nice to be welcomed and included, right? Today we’re going to show you how to make sure your guests feel welcomed, whether they’re traveling from across the country or around the corner. When A & I tied the knot, we were blessed by the number of guests who traveled far and wide to attend. Our wedding took place in Michigan, yet we had guests from Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Montana, New York, Illinois, and Texas – that’s eight states! Luckily, all of our out-of-town guests previously lived in the area, so they already knew the best places to eat, where to stay, and the best places to see downtown. What about your wedding? Will there be out of town guests who are unfamiliar with the area? Are there things you can do to make them feel a little more comfortable? How can you make local guests feel just as welcome? We have all the answers – and more! – in today’s post. We’ll tell you how to welcome your guests with twelve helpful tips including DIY wedding welcome bags, a clever ceremony program idea, transporting to and from the reception, and more! Read on for the full scoop…
