| WEDDING PLANNING | How To Involve Your Guests At Your Wedding Day
As soon as you’ve bagged that gorgeous bit of bling on your fourth finger, you’ll find that you will be inundated with offers from friends and family who want to lend a helping hand. We’ve put together a few ideas on how you can make your guests a part of your celebration without getting too involved…
Choose a couple of guests to do a reading at your ceremony, they’ll be absolutely honoured to have been asked and it will give your bridal party a break from their busy duties. You’ll find plenty of lovely non-religious readings for your wedding ceremony over on www.savethedatemagazine.co.uk.
Do you have an uncle with an epic car? Ask him to transport you and your bridesmaids to your wedding ceremony! Not only is it a chance to flaunt the motor, it’s a really special time ahead of the chaos of your wedding day.
If you have any guests that are incredible singers or musicians, make use of them and ask them to play a part during your ceremony, drinks reception or even for your first dance.
Fancy the thought of an unplugged wedding? More and more couples are opting say goodbye to technology during their wedding day, so you could always ask one of your loved ones to gently remind guests to put away their phones.
Flower Girls & Page Boys
There’s no doubt about it, flower girls and page boys are super cute and your smaller guests will adore being a part of your ceremony. Why not ask them to carry some sweet signs down the aisle to your ceremony?
The confetti shot is always incredible, as long as your guests actually throw confetti. Delegate a ‘confetti distributor’ role to one of your guests, the smaller ones will adore this job! Whether they hand out cones brimming with confetti or place packets on the seats before your ceremony, this will ensure your photographer captures the all-important confetti moment.
Take advantage of your talented guests and play to their strengths. Perhaps your auntie is a whizz in the kitchen, and you could ask her to make you edible wedding favours? If you have a crafty friend, why not have a DIY evening together creating your wedding décor. The options are endless, and you’ll be surprised at how pleased your guests will be to have been asked.
If you’re tackling your wedding without a planner, it can easily become a daunting task and that extra few pair of helping hands will really go a long way. In the meantime, don’t forget to swing by www.savethedatemagazine.co.uk for even more wedding inspiration…
