The guest experience is the most important element for any event. Without happy guests there’s no atmosphere. Walk your event through before, how will guests be welcomed, where do they check their coats, ensure good service… no one should be waiting for a glass of champagne.
Golden rule…. Be prepared and organised. Get ready ahead, give yourself time for mistakes.
Don’t feel the need to keep up with others. Be yourself. There really are no rules anymore, other than keeping your event personal to your taste.
Make sure your dance floors not too big or you run the risk of making your party looking empty. Remember a good number of your guests could be in the toilets or outside smoking at any one time.
Post a wedding ceremony you need to create subtle talking points at your reception. Escort cards are the perfect excuse to get creative. Everyone wants to know where they are sitting for dinner…. Handsome models under trees cutting ribbon escort cards telling each guest their table number is practical and special.
The cutting of the wedding cake can be the biggest non-event. So make it an event within your wedding… present it with dancers …. Handsome waiters wheel it in on a trolley…. Or even confetti cannons explode over you as you cut into it.
Keep your guests guessing. Never have entertainers on for too long that they get boring…. Move into different spaces as the event progresses, changing themes and colours.
