As a planner, I feel it's important to make your guests feel welcome and truly invited to your wedding ceremony & reception. This means thought and preparation. I often parallel it to having a house guest. You make the effort to clean your house, making sure their linens are clean, food in the house, have extra toiletries on hand and any little extras. Your goal is to make them feel welcomed in your home - the same for one of the biggest days of your life.
Here are some pictures for your to enjoy and get some inspiration for your wedding - enjoy and happy planning!
