6 Ways to Prepare Your Guests for Your Destination Wedding


Give your guests several options for accommodations.
If you’re getting married at a hotel or resort, set up a room block on site – you can often negotiate this as part of your contract. Take into account your guest’s comfort levels and budgets and offer at least one or two additional lodging options. Use sites like Skipper to save money and simplify this process.  Make these options clear on your website and provide transportation at all locations to the wedding festivities making everyone feel included no matter which option they choose.

Update your website and use it as a mini guide book for your guests.
Include as much information as possible on your wedding website. Your guests will thank you and you’ll avoid lots of last minute phone calls about hotel information and restaurant recommendations. Some important things to include on your website: lodging (include any room blocks or group rate discount codes), closest airport, best ways to get around town, dress code information, your favorite restaurants and sightseeing locations.

Recognize that many guests will turn your wedding into their vacation.
Especially in the summer months and during holiday weekends like Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day, your wedding guests are looking for any excuse to get out of the office and take a vacation. Lucky for them, you have chosen to host them in a beautiful destination! Whether it’s a city, the mountains or a tropical oasis, your guests are looking forward to this getaway. By keeping your website updated with things to do and places to go, they’ll be prepared for a fun trip and you won’t feel like you have to entertain them outside of the wedding weekend.
