16 thoughtful finishing-touch ideas your wedding guests will adore

16 thoughtful finishing-touch ideas your wedding guests will adore


Written by Katie Byrne


Make sure your nearest and dearest feel comfortable all day (and night!) long with these ideas...

 

#1 Let's start with something basic but genius: pick wedding programmes that double up...

...As fans! Perfect for a ceremony held in a stuffy venue, or for keeping guests cool during your warm summer celebration in general.

#2 There will probably be tears. Lots and lots of tears.

Avoid any embarrassment for your guests by making sure you have stacks of cute, clean hankies available for any emotional moments.

#3 Saying 'I do' outdoors?

#4 Similarly, keep guests protected from sun (and showers!) by arming them with budget-friendly brollies.

#5 Make sure you have ample (and relevant) refreshments available for your guests.

 

Have all bases covered by offering hot and cold snack options, as well as alcoholic and soft drinks.

#6 Create an area where guests can leave the 'bits' they don't need 

Hopefully, your wedding venue will have a cloakroom - if not, you might want to create a shoe area for anyone who wants to kick off uncomfortable heels, as well as somewhere where coats and jackets can be hung.

On the subject of shoes! Offer comfy flip-flops for guests who want to trade their heels for something a little less... Ouch.

#7 Saying 'I do' on a cool day?

Keep guests comfortably warm with the help of snacks, drinks, candles and lots of blankets.
