5 Things ALL Wedding Guests Love

5 Things ALL Wedding Guests Love

Ultimately, yes, it is YOUR day as the bride, but here are a few things that guests love at weddings. There are many (long) checklists about things guests don’t like, but let’s focus on the positive.

Clear, timely communication.

From the save-the-dates to the invitations to the program – communication is key. Whether it is about the start time for the ceremony, wedding venue location or even dress code- if you want them to know about it- spell it out. This allows for your guests to plan accordingly and to have the proper expectations.

Photo Booths

Fun photo booths are great on a couple of levels for your guests. AND they take home a great little souvenir from your wedding. It is a great icebreaker; people can mix and mingle as they wait. So fun!

A Killer DJ

A bad DJ is like a dark cloud at an otherwise great event. Conversely, having a great DJ makes a HUGE difference. An experienced DJ knows how to keep the party moving is key to having a successful wedding reception.

We know some pretty awesome DJs.


Whether it is a cocktail hour beforehand or midnight snacks (or BOTH!) a little extra food always is a good idea. Hungry guests sometimes equal cranky guests. So keep the food coming- especially if you are wanting the party to last a while. Your guests will need some fuel to make sure they can show off their killer dance moves.

Thoughtful Seating

As you are creating a seating chart, do your best to put people near others that they hopefully know or at least will most likely get along with. This will go a long way – the dinner/toast portion of the reception is sizable and can be awkward if the seating isn’t well thought out. And if you are unsure, even talking to a few of your guests ahead of time to give them a heads up helps a lot- it will allow them to come in with a sense of humor and mentally prepared to make small talk if needed.


Talking to you (the bride & groom)

Your guests realize and understand that you aren’t able to talk to EVERYONE. But, they sure love it when you make an effort. It’s a hard balance to maintain but visiting with your guests while dining and dancing helps make the night even more magical for them.

3 Steps to Building the Ultimate Wedding Package


1. Pick Your Wedding Photographer(s)

Whether you want ultra-creative or classic photos, our professional wedding photographers can deliver whatever kind of aesthetic you’re looking for. Each photographer offers their own unique professional approach to wedding photography, and you can pick the right one for you. The photography is just the start of the ultimate wedding package.

2. Pick Your Wedding Videographer(s)

One of the biggest regrets we hear from the over 25,000 couples we have served is that they didn’t get a professional wedding video made. Don’t let that be your regret! Like our photographers, our videographers can create cinematic wedding videos that spotlight your love. Whatever you’re looking for, our videographers will deliver a wedding video that you’ll be able to enjoy for years and share with future generations.

3. Pick Your Wedding DJ & MC

In order to capture photos and videos of the touching, hilarious and memorable moments at your wedding reception, you’re going to need the right music at the right time. The final piece of the ultimate wedding package, our DJs will bring your wedding celebration to the next level. Pick the music, don’t pick the music, create a “do not play list”, or give us no list at all, we’ll get to know you and your guests and construct a playlist that fits just right. But our DJs do more than just play songs, they bring energy to your wedding with engaging announcements, introductions and more.
