What Do Wedding Guests Really Care About? Part One

Now that you’re deep in the throes of wedding planning, it may be hard – even nearly impossible – to remember what it feels like to be on the other side of the aisle, namely as a wedding guest. That can make it difficult to prioritize what is actually most important when it comes to creating a memorable and meaningful day for not just yourself, but also the loved ones you’ve invited to share in your celebration. Fortunately, we’re here with a few helpful reminders about what your guests really care about. Because knowing that can help you keep your eye on the prize, you know, marrying the man of your dreams. It also makes you less likely to waste time or money on insignificant details that really won’t matter all that much in the end.

Keep the Ceremony Short and Sweet (Make Sure Everyone Can See and Hear You)

Easily one of the most important elements of any wedding day is the ceremony. Whether this is held in a church, or a backyard, a rustic wedding venue or a 100-year-old chapel, there is one word guests consistently use to describe a great one, and that is “short!”

This doesn’t mean you need to have the officiant say the standard vows in high speed. It does mean, you should keep the ceremony as short and sweet as possible, though obviously this may be dependent upon religious guidelines if you’re wedding in a church.

It’s also wise to infuse personality into this part of your wedding day. After all, who really wants to go to the same old wedding ceremony?

You can make your ceremony unique by writing your own vows or putting a unique spin on the classics. Even choosing a unique and meaningful entrance song, or a funny exit song, can help make your ceremony special for the two of you and memorable for your guests!

Of course, no amount of fun will matter if your guests can’t see or hear the ceremony. So make sure you have someone skilled running the sound system, and that there is plenty of comfortable seating, wherever your ceremony will take place!
