Timetable for the Day
If you are planning a long day, perhaps with breaks built in, then it is always good for your guests to know these details well in advance – especially if they have young children with them. A detailed timetable will allow them to work out things such as whether they have time to pop home and get changed for the ‘Evening Do’, whether they should have something to eat before the events begin, and when is best to put the kids to bed.
You will find that dress codes for the daytime events is not really needed (unless you are one of those unlucky people who has a tramp for an Uncle who will wear jeans unless formally told otherwise!) as most guests will know what attire is expected. However for a more formal ‘Evening Do’, or if you are planning a themed wedding, then it is always wise to give your guests a few pointers, as much for their sake as for yours!
Finding somewhere to park at a church or other religious building can sometimes be a little tricky, so unless there is somewhere obvious and substantial enough, you really should take a few moments to advise your guests of the most appropriate place to park – the last thing you want is half your guests trudging in midway through the Service simply because they couldn’t find anywhere to leave their car!
The most asked question raised by guests attending a Wedding is ‘What gift should I buy?’. Gift lists have solved this problem to a great degree but of course the guests will still need to be made aware of what is actually on the gift list and what items remain un-bought.
