Your out of town guests may feel a little out of the loop as they will be staying away from you and the groom, the families and their own homes. Provide them with a little welcome gift basket in your absence. Since out of town guests are not familiar with the area, the basket can include a map of the area, calendar of events and popular tourist attractions or places of interest. You can include some personal touches such as food and beverage items, flowers, candles, essential oils or soaps. Make sure you include a personal note welcoming your guests to your special celebration. Call all of your out of town guests welcoming them to your event and helping them to feel less isolated.
If your wedding and reception venue is a considerable distance from the hotel location, you may consider hiring a transportation service such as vans or a bus to bring the out of town guests to the event. If this is not possible or you only have a few out of town guests, consider asking members of the bridal party to assist with bringing the guests with them.
Make sure all your guests know the features of your wedding beforehand - the requested attire, venue and registry. It may be easier for out of town guests to select and purchase the wedding gift from the registry as they will not have to carry it with them.
Consider having the out of town guests attend the rehearsal dinner or have a separate post wedding brunch or dinner just for them. This will allow you to thank them personally for attending your wedding.
Your wedding is your special day, but don't forget all of those who come from near and far to help you with the celebration!
