All eyes will be on you on your wedding day – from people gushing over your beautiful dress to guests talking about how amazing your cake is – this is all about you and your partner.

With that being said, the people you’ve invited to your wedding are your guests, so it’s important that they enjoy your day just as much as you do.

This doesn’t mean that you need to go out of your way to make your wedding day about your guests, but there are small things you can do to make the celebration even more memorable.

1. Give them a welcome bag. Wedding welcome bags are a hot trend at the moment and guests love them! Welcome bags don’t need to be over the top either. A simple gift bag with a bottle of water, some snacks, and maybe some comfy shoes for when the dance floor opens is a simple but effective way to make the day super comfortable for your guests. Personalize it with some treats from your local bakery, candy store or popcorn shop to promote your hometown! Ask your hotel if they can pass them out to your out of town guests when they check in.

2. Offer drinks before your ceremony. Guests will be hanging around for at least 30 minutes before your ceremony starts and if you are getting married during the warmer months, offering a refreshing welcome drink can get the day off to a good start.

3. Keep them warm. Getting married during autumn or winter? Place a few blankets or pashminas at the entrance of your ceremony venue to ensure guests are warm while you’re saying your vows. If your venue offers outdoor seating, a fire pit is a great option too!

4. Shield their eyes. If your ceremony will be taking place outside, make sure that your guests can see exactly what’s going on by offering them a pair of sunglasses. Buying them in bulk will cut the cost of this fun wedding extra. And, don't forget the sunscreen!

5. Cater for late-night munchies. If you know that most of your guests will be dancing and having a good time late into the night, bring a few sodas and light snacks out later in the night to keep their tummies full. Charcuterie boards are hot right now too! Why not have a late night charcuterie board for your guests to snack on? Or schedule a food truck to show up after hours for those with the late night munchies.

6. Send them home with a treat. Say thank you by sending your guests home with a delicious treat such as a cupcake. This could even double up as a late-night snack if you want to save on costs.

7. Create a charging station. Make sure that your guests can keep taking photos and recording fun videos of your day by setting up a phone charging station at your reception.

Making your wedding day extra-special for your guests doesn’t need to be complicated or cost a fortune – it’s the smaller details that matter.

Don't forget to have them tag their photos with your custom wedding hashtag. This will make it easier for you to find all those photos your guests took of your big day!
