You’ve secured the date, booked your dream wedding venue and drafted the all important guest list.
But it’s the small details at a wedding that make all the difference. Guests will remember your day for the little extras, and these will make your day the most talked about wedding for years.
Here are my top simple and budget friendly picks to make your guests say “wow”.
Keep them entertained
Weddings are often a looong day. And with the wedding breakfast lasting up to two and a half hours on average, it’s important to keep your guests throughly entertained. Having games on the table is a good, simple way to keep guests alert and they can also be a fantastic ice breaker if guests aren’t familiar with each other.

Anticipate their needs before they do
It’s your job to think of absolutely everything your guests could possibly need to make the day a little more comfortable for them.
A popular idea is to offer flip flops for tired feet, or blankets if the weather’s predicted to be a little chilly.
The idea is to anticipate your guests needs before they do.
Give them a say
It’s important to hear your guests out. Find out what song they’d like to hear by including a space for a request on the invitations.
Create an interactive guest book
Polaroid’s are a fun an alternative way to create a guest book. Have your guests snap away and sign the polaroids, then stick them into the guest book.
Write a personalised note
Personalised notes are a great way to show your guests that you really appreciate them sharing the day with you.
Write each person a personalised note and leave it on their place setting to show your appreciation.
Give them favours they’ll actually use
Favours are something people always tend to leave until the last minute and skimp on. Do you guests really want a pebble with your initials on? Give them something they can really appreciate.

Do a surprise choreographed dance
This is throughly entertaining for guests and is such fun for you as a couple. Create a fun mix of your favourite cheesy hits. You can have first dance lessons for as little as £30.
Assign Ushers to guide guests to their seat
Believe it or not, this was originally an Ushers duty at a wedding, however the tradition has faded in time. Why not bring it back and make guests feel cared for.
