August 28, 2014 / Wedding Ceremonies

I have friends on Facebook. It’s true. Some of us are silly and profound and clever and we post funny comments on each other’s statuses. After one such round of banter, I got a friend request from a friend of a friend. He assured me he wasn’t a creeper, he just liked my sense of humor. So I added him and went on with my life, as he went on with his.

Fast forward a year or two. My new friend, Michael, has fallen madly in love with Kassandra. Who could blame him? Look at her, she’s incredible! He’s not so bad either.

Planning a Wedding Your Guests Will Love

WeddingsI know, I know. It’s your special day, it should be all about you and what you want, right?

Weeeellllll… yes and no. It is your wedding and it should be special for you but when you’re throwing a party for 50-500 people, it needs to be planned for more than just 2 of them.

These are just a few things to think seriously about from your guest’s perspectives before you send out your invites.

What ages will be attending?

While many modern couples are choosing whether or not to plan a child-friendly wedding, they typically forget to plan an elder-friendly wedding. Venues that are difficult to access, programs/seating charts/invitations with too tiny print, lack of shade or warmth at an outdoor ceremony, vague directions to the reception venue, loud music too early in the reception – all of these things can challenge and confound your beloved older guests.
