Arrival: your wedding weekend may start on a Friday night with an outdoor barbeque that welcomes guests as they arrive; or opt for a formal, catered rehearsal dinner for bridal party and immediate family. Guests may join you for cocktails after dinner or arrive the following morning.
Stress-free Travel: the day of your wedding you’ll be waking up at your wedding location so no need to stress about traveling or traffic! Rather, enjoy the morning with your bridal party getting manicures and pedicures over mimosas. Consider inviting other guests to join in too!
Games & Activities: Retreat Centers often have games and activities easily accessible for guests to enjoy at their leisure. Family and friends can spend time creating warm memories with family and friends - either the morning of the wedding or the day after the wedding.
If you are having a day wedding, you’ll have the entire evening ahead of you to enjoy the company of your family and friends. Your reception may include a sit down dinner; then opt for lighter fare or late night appetizers later in the evening.
Bon Fire: at the end of the evening, consider roasting s’mores sitting around a campfire with guests. A great way to end the festive day!
Post Wedding Brunch: on the final day of your wedding weekend, offer a brunch or BBQ lunch for guests to gather one last time. This gives guests time to share their wedding day memories and say final goodbyes. Check with your photographer, videographer – even your disc jockey (checkout our Technology Trends article) – to see if they have the ability to recap the wedding day’s event in a photo montage or video clip for all to view during brunch.
