When planning a wedding, you have to think about each and every detail. You want your sola wood wedding flowers to look spectacular, wedding cake to be delicious, and your guests to be happy. However, with guests coming from all across the world (or at least country), you will need to take into consideration many things. First of all, you will have to make all your out-of-town guests at home. Of course, that might take some preparation. Here are a few tips to make your planning easier:

Provide Information

It is the first and probably the most important task you have to complete when inviting out-of-town guests. You might want to include all the information (must-see places around, times, transportation, accommodation, and flight options, etc.) with your wedding invitations and also put it on your wedding website. Remember that most of your out-of-town guests will have no idea about your wedding place, so they will need as much guidance as possible.

Meet Them Upon Arrival

It would be nice if you could meet your guests upon their arrival to the wedding destination, especially if they don't have any private transportation. It will show that you care for your guests and will set a good tone for the rest of the wedding. Of course, if you are busy shaping last sola wood wedding flowers or trying out your wedding dress, you can send someone else to meet your guests.

Also, it would be great if you welcomed your guests with a small gift bag, which would wait for them in their hotel rooms. That could be anything from fresh fruits to chocolate. As long as you pack the gifts nicely and adorn them with sola wood roses, guests will feel appreciated and loved.

Arrange Transportation

Some of your out-of-town guests will not have their cars, so you will have to take care of their transportation during the wedding. There are many options, including hotel shuttles or other guests with cars, so don't worry. However, make sure to arrange everything at least a few weeks before the wedding. Also, have a plan B just in case something goes wrong. You wouldn't want your guests to be stuck at their hotel without any way to reach your wedding, would you?

Think About Entertainment

Most of your out-of-town guests will come for at least the weekend, so it would be nice if you thought of something entertaining before and after the wedding. For example, your family or friends could host a BBQ party, where all the guests would meet each other. That could be a great icebreaker. Don't worry – you don't have to attend all these parties or activities. Your guests will understand that you might be too busy and stressed to meet a few days before the wedding.

Suggest Where to Stay

First of all, you don't have to pay for your out-of-town guests' accommodation. However, it is expected that couples would offer some suggestions as they know the area much better than the guests. If you have some extra space at your house, you can invite some guests to stay with you. Also, if some of your friends and family who live nearby want to help, let them. However, in most cases, your guests will stay in hotels. So, make sure to suggest them the best hotel in town, and for more convenience, try to arrange that all your guests stay close to each other.

And remember to surprise them with small gifts adorned with sola wood flowers.
