Let’s start with the biggest punch line: You can’t make everyone happy. No matter how much you try to get things perfect, there would always be a few people who would want more and have complaints.
But that said and aside, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. It’s your wedding, and you must make sure all your guests are treated well and satisfyingly.
Here are 5 ways how to make your wedding guests happy:
1. It starts with the right invitation card
Don’t stick to a standard online marriage invitation card in USA. Go out of the way to order something unique and interesting that leaves all the invitees in “aww”.
Depending on the wedding theme and the preference of the happy couple, personalize the invitation accordingly. Have a sweet message on it for the guests. Include all the necessary details, right from the exact address (including the direction if it’s located in the inner corners) to the timings.
Hire a good creative illustrator designer in USA and work together to design the most perfect wedding card.
2. Less crowd and in-house hassle
Okay, let’s admit it… no one likes big crowd — unless, of course, they are at some concert.
It’s a wedding, a much intimate affair. Avoid inviting half of the city, even when you’re the nicest person alive. Invite only those who are the closest you.
A large crowd with too many “who is he” and “who are they” doesn’t make up for a good experience. You won’t be able to allot enough time to every one.
Besides, a large fat wedding will, unsurprisingly, cost you more.
The lesser the crowd, the more home-like your guests will feel.
3. Enough leisure seating arrangements
Congestion is one of the worst things that can happen at the wedding. (Another disadvantage of too many guests.
So, arrange for enough leisure seating. Place the chairs, tables, sofa sets properly so that the guests can comfortably sit with a partner, family or alone.
Also, position the seating slightly away from each other so each of the guests has their respective privacy in conversations.
Picture this: A glass of chardonnay in hand, luxury seats, and friends&family around. Doesn’t this scream “fun”?!
4. Delicious food (and an open bar)
Of course, this goes without saying.
Food can make or break the deal at the wedding.
When deciding the menu, factor the eating habits (and health needs) of all your guests. And then line up dishes exactly according to it so that everyone enjoys a great, delicious meal without “I don’t eat it”.
In addition, also have an open bar instead of pushing it somewhere in the corner of a room. So that after the meal, guests can comfortably enjoy a few drinks in the open.
5. A designated driver
A perfect way to end a perfect occasion. Seal the deal by having designated drivers drop all the guests to their home.
Indeed, this might add to your cost. But if you’re really looking to make everyone happy, this is the best way you can do it.
Even if they didn’t enjoy the wedding, a good arrangement like this at the end will leave on them a lasting impression. And they will eventually end up feeling like that had fun at the wedding.
These are 5 ways how you can make all your wedding guests super happy.
However, even still, if you find some of them complain, don’t pay heed to them. Don’t let them ruin this special day for you. Have fun!
