3 Ways To Honor People Outside Of Your Wedding Party

By inviting close friends and family members to join your wedding party, you can have the people you value close by to help you celebrate your special day. While your wedding party can vary in size, there can inevitably be close people who are not included in this group, or as part of the ceremony. Finding small ways to honor relatives, close friends, and people who travel to attend your wedding can help you show appreciation to these people. It can also help other guests identify siblings, grandparents, and others who are related to the bride and groom. 

1. Inviting Out Of Town Guests To Your Rehearsal Dinner

Out of town guests face more demands on their schedules, and their wallets, when they agree to attend your special day. Welcoming these travelers at your rehearsal dinner is a great way to thank them for being there, and it gives them something to do the night before your wedding. If you are not able to include them at the rehearsal dinner, you could host a lunch before an evening wedding, or a post-wedding brunch as thanks.

2. Providing Corsages And Boutonnieres For Family And Other People You Are Close To

Corsages and boutonnieres for family members will give you a way to spotlight those people in your lives. If you want to give them something unique, you can consider arranging flowers yourself to create unique boutonnieres and corsages.

3. Sending Gift Baskets To Guests’ Hotel Rooms

For guests who travel, or who provided help in some important way, a thank-you gift can certainly be appropriate. If you have guests who are staying in a hotel, you can arrange to have a gift basket waiting for them after your reception concludes.
