When planning your wedding, you don’t want to neglect your duty as host or hostess. Take a moment to recognize the effort made by your guests that are arriving from out of town. Part of that includes making sure your out of town guests have somewhere to stay. You can make your guest feel appreciated by reserving a block of rooms at a single hotel, or by sending out wedding accommodation cards.
The purpose of a wedding accommodation card is to provide your guests with a variety of hotels in your area for them to choose from that might fit within their budget. These cards usually contain information about each hotel along with their rates. You can also include extra information on local activities if you think your guests might have some extra time for visiting.
If you really want to go above and beyond, consider leaving them an assortment of yummy treats, a bottle of wine, or spa certificates in their hotel room. You can even put together a Traveler’s Survival Kit. Here are some ideas to include.
- Directions to local attractions
- Brochures for local amusements
- Maps for public transportation
- Menus from local restaurants
- Driving directions from the hotel to the wedding location
- A hangover remedy
Your friends have come a long way to see you tie the knot. Not only does the gesture save your guests some of the hassle of making travel plans, but shows them how much you appreciate their effort to attend.
