Entertain your Guests Throughout your Whole Wedding Weekend (1 of 2)

Inviting a large number of family and friends together can be a slightly stressful, yet wonderful time. If you plan on extending your wedding celebration into a whole weekend, it can be a great idea to have extra festivities to keep your guests occupied while they meet and mingle. These are definitely not required, but if you have it in your budget, it can be a generous and fun gift to your guests who may not know each other, or the city where you’re getting married.

Welcome Party

Throwing a welcome party is a great way to kick off your wedding weekend, and to greet and introduce your guests in a relaxed atmosphere. Get inspired by backyard barbecues, cocktail parties, or find a place that showcases local flavor, such Texas barbecue, Chicago deep-dish pizza, or Wisconsin cheese curds. This is also an opportunity to introduce guests to the area.

Wedding Party Field Day

If you have a large wedding party the dress rehearsal may be their first time meeting each other. To break the ice and let everyone bond, throw a wedding party field day. Think classic backyard party games like three-legged races or water balloon toss. After, continue the fun by heading out to your favorite local bar or attraction.

Morning Yoga

Have a favorite yoga teacher or studio in town? Host a special wedding day yoga class for your guests at the studio or their hotel. This can be a great way to get everyone’s day started, and fill the time gap before the ceremony. If you have time feel free to join too, taking an exercise class can reduce any last minute stress or jitters.
