Whether you are planning a wedding or a dinner party, you want your guests to feel special. While party favors are a classic way to make guests feel special, there are a lot of simple and inexpensive things you can do to make your event one that your guests will remember for years to come.
4 Ways to Wow Your Guests
- Keep the people you invite in the loop. Contacting each guest before the event to provide more detailed specifics about the occasion will make them feel like their attendance is important to you. Providing a concrete time and date is particularly important if your guests are from out-of-town and will need to book accommodations. You could even take this a step further and pre-book a few hotel rooms for your guests.
- Offer variety. Avoid strict seating arrangements. You should also think of a few different alternatives to the activities you planned just in case a few guests might prefer not to participate. If it’s your wedding, having a variety of outdoor games available during cocktail hour will not only keep your guests entertained, but it will also give them a chance to meet and interact with each other.
- If you’re hosting a party, make sure that you greet each person you invite as they arrive and see them off when they leave. If you are allowing your guests to bring someone you don’t know, familiarize yourself with the person’s name beforehand. That way, you will be able to address them confidently when you meet them for the first time. Try to touch base with each person you invite throughout the event, asking if they’re having fun and if there’s anything you can get them.
- If your guests are coming on from out of town, arranging transportation for them will not only ensure that they will be on time for your event, but you won’t have to worry about anyone overindulging and then driving. Perhaps you can organize a few designated drivers or have the numbers for local car services for people who shouldn’t be driving themselves home.
By following the above recommendations, you’ll make your guests feel valued and create an event they will remember fondly. Don’t be afraid to get creative. The more you can personalize the experience for your guests, the better.
