Today we have Wedding Paper Divas style & trend expert, Amber Harrison on our blog letting us in on what wedding guests really care about when it comes to the big day. Amber is our resident authority on the latest wedding trends and etiquette guidelines. She combines tradition, personal style and the hottest trends to help each couple celebrate their unique love story on their big day.
When it comes to your wedding day, your guests really just want to have a great experience! With that being said, your wedding guests won’t like waiting around. They don’t care so much about the expensive party favors and they also don’t want a ten course meal that just tastes average. At the end of this big day, it’s all about how your guests feel, not what you gave them!
Kim: Guests just want to have a great experience. They don’t want to wait around a lot. So, they don’t want to wait between your ceremony and your reception. They don’t want to wait to get a drink at the bar, and they don’t want to sit at the table and wait for dinner.
Amber: What are some of the biggest misconceptions that couples should think about when planning their wedding?
Kim: Brides go on a Pinterest spree and they see all these amazing favor ideas. Then, they end up getting really wrapped up in the details of the wedding favors and spend a lot of money for items that get left on the table.
Amber: You mentioned foregoing a favor, what would you recommend as a more appreciated alternative?
Kim: I think guests appreciate really good food. Think quality over quantity. Serve one wonderful main course instead of a salad with a less great main course and your guests will really appreciate that.
Hopefully your wedding to-do list has just got a little bit shorter. Like we said, it’s how your guests feel, not what you give them that they will remember.
