Ways to Engage Guests at Your Wedding
Brides are always looking for wedding ideas, especially brides on a budget. Today we’ve enlisted help from Ryan of Savoir Flair Weddings to give us some helpful hints on making your wedding fun and unique. She has also interviewed some of her favorite vendors to get their advice too!
As a wedding planner and designer I am so concerned with the best places to put each penny into a wedding. You need to have great food, music, photography etc…however, you don’t necessarily NEED to have that one extra hors d’ ouvres, or the champagne toast (have guests toast with whatever they are drinking), or a useless trinket favor. But what you NEED to do is ENGAGE…ENGAGE….ENGAGE. In my opinion that is the best use of your money and the main thing that really sets your wedding aside and ensures your guests to walk away happy and saying GOOD things about your wedding. There are lots of places to engage.
-Start by having a relevant, poignant , important ceremony.
-Next choose unexpected, delicious (not pretentious) food. Then remember your guests are your GUESTS and let them know in no uncertain terms they are to loosen up, relax, have fun and…engage.
Some of my favorite vendors have been so kind as to share with us the best things they’ve seen that ENGAGE guests.
