What Out-Of-Town Wedding Guests Really Need

What Out-Of-Town Wedding Guests Really Need

Your guests may travel from nearby or far away to see your wedding, and many of them will need a place to stay for a night or two.

Whether you are having a destination wedding or getting married in your home town, chances are there will be out-of-town family or friends celebrating your big event with you.

If you are looking into venues for a destination wedding, spend a little time thinking about where you’d want your guests to stay. Our Pinterest page has lots of pictures of great locations.

Resorts and hotels often offer group rates, so make sure to ask about that — it will save time and money in the long run.

If the wedding is in your back yard (literally or figuratively), it’s equally important to consider where your guests will be. Unless you want them all bunking at a parent’s house, you may find it helpful to share some local lodging options.

If you are planning to have goody bags for your out-of-town guests, make sure to ask the resort or hotel if they can accommodate that. Since your guests have made the trip to see you get married, you’ll want to make them as comfortable as possible while they are in town.
