Blog PostSaying Thank You To Your Wedding Guests

wpengine December 8, 2017

Whether you have an intimate gathering of close family or you’ve invited everyone you know to your wedding, your guests deserve some appreciation on the wedding day. While the big day is mainly about you and your partner, your family, and friends who are celebrating with you also deserve some credit for the love and support they’ve shown you over the years. Thank you cards are always necessary after the wedding, but there are also some things you can do on your wedding day to say a big, heartfelt thank you to your wedding guests.

Welcome Baskets

For those who have traveled a long way or who are staying in a hotel, treat them to a little welcome basket when they arrive. This doesn’t need to be anything expensive or extravagant, but it is a very kind gesture that your guests will appreciate.

Note Cards

A well-thought-out note thanking all of your guests for joining you on your special day is a lovely way to show friends and family how much you appreciate them. The note can be on the back of ceremony programs, on each table at the reception, or as a sign posted for everyone to see.

Give A Toast To Your Family And Friends

At one point in the night, you will probably give a toast and thank all of your guests for coming, but if you’ve invited a large number of people to the wedding, it’s nice to take the time to thank your family and close friends individually. You can keep this toast short and sweet, but giving a special shout-out to those who mean the most to you and have gone above and beyond in helping you plan the special day will mean a lot to them.

Provide Them With Great Entertainment

An easy way to thank your guests for joining you on your wedding is to give them a great time! When planning your reception, think about the overall guest experience. Entertainment can include an excellent DJ, a game room for those who don’t like to dance, an open bar with fun cocktails, and a photo booth station for guests to capture funny memories. The gift of a great party will show your guests how much effort you put into making the night special for everyone, and they’ll be very grateful for how much you care.
