Well hello there everyone! Have you missed me? Because I sure have missed ya'll. I took a little hiatus while things were crazy at work and to be honest, because the site was blocked for a while from my office. But never fear, I am here!!
Just wanted to kick this wedding season off with a quick hello. My friends keep telling me all of the great wedding news and I am ecstatic to help my friends! I had such a fun time planning my own wedding, that's how this blog started.
A quick tip before I go, for brides who are having destination weddings, even if it's not to an exotic place, especially when you have guests coming from out of town, make sure you include hotel information with your invitations. I recently received an invite to a wedding that would be out of state for me, and there was no information on where I should be staying! So remember, while everyone should be helping you, you should always try to help your guests too!
Another thing to consider is making welcome baskets or small gifts for your guests to put in their hotel rooms. For my wedding party, I got tourist books from the Outer Banks and included them in their road-trip packs. Each wedding party member got a beach towel, flip flops, tourist books, and snacks for the trip down to NC. Now I am not saying you should go all out for every guest, but maybe consider giving them a little touristy treat for when they arrive. A guide book, a trinket (like a cheesy magnet or something), get fun with it. Head to your local dollar store and see what fun things you can come with!!
