Plan your seating chart properly.
People need to be seated based on how familiar they are to each other and based on the interests that they share so far. The worst thing that you could ever do is to just lump some people together just because they all happen to be singles or just because they have their names lined up in alphabetical order. You need to really think things through and be a little more thoughtful than the usual whenever you are trying to work things out so far. Your seating chart for the wedding needs to be planned out down to a T in order for your guests to be able to properly enjoy themselves and the company that they are with. Research into who your guests are and what their main interests are. This might help you out a bit in planning out the ever important seating chart at the end of the day.
Splurge a little on an open bar.
You can do this without a burning a hole in your wallet. Getting your guests to reach down for their wallets is cringe worthy and not the type of thing that you would want them to remember about your wedding. Keep the selection modest by having one beer, wine, and hard liquor but by all means, keep the tab as well. Don’t let them pay for the drinks. It really is more out of etiquette more than anything else. Since you are splurging on hiring out the best wedding photographer you could find, an open bar really is a small thing to consider so you might as well go for it.
Make your guests comfortable.
Have a lounge area set up so that they can rest up a little and kick off their heels whenever they are feeling a little too tired with the partying during the wedding reception. If you have set up outdoors, you might want to consider the need for a tent or any type of shelter from the sun or even from the possibility of rain. Have some parasols provided for so that they wouldn’t have to worry too much about the scorching heat of the sun. Little things like this might come off as a little trivial, at best, but they can really make all of the difference in the world and this is what you ought to take note of when you are planning to get married. Even the best wedding photographer out there can’t do much about uncomfortable looking photos.
Take care of the bare necessities.
If you are planning out a wedding set smack right in the middle of nowhere, you cannot go through with this without thinking about the facilities that you and your guests might have a need for such as rest rooms and changing rooms and places to sit down on and the like. You need to anticipate and pre-empt these things ahead of time. You can’t just bring them somewhere without any type of foresight or anything like that planned out. Remember that apart from this being your wedding, this is also something that you are hosting which means that it is your social responsibility to your wedding guests to make sure that they are well taken care of all across the board.
