ORGANIZE A GROUP ACTIVITY Whether you charter a boat for an afternoon, arrange for a group cooking lesson, or hire a guide to take you on an island tour, group activities create memories that will last a lifetime. Finding something suitable for every age, interest and ability can be tough, but our agency will be able to point you in the right direction. ARRIVE A FEW DAYS BEFORE YOUR GUESTS With the expense of the wedding and honeymoon, an additional few days away might seem like an extravagance, but you’ll thank yourself once your guests start to arrive and you can relax knowing all the details have been taken care of. Use the time to meet with vendors, put together your welcome bags, and scout out local bars and restaurants. DON’T SKIP THE WELCOME BAGS Welcome bags might seem like an unnecessary expense, but when they’re done right, they are worth their weight in gold. Maps, restaurant suggestions, and a detailed itinerary give your guests the information they need to function without relying on you. Do you really want to be a 24/7 concierge? Welcome bags are especially important for destination weddings, where guests aren’t familiar with the area and have more free time to themselves. (See page 17 for tips.) HIRE LIVE ENTERTAINMENT Talented musicians can take your party to a whole new level. Get everyone on the dance floor with a fun-loving mariachi band, have a jazz quartet play the first dance song, or hire a drummer to accompany the DJ. This is one splurge that won’t be forgotten. CALL OUR AGENCY for help organizing all of this and more! Photo by Jonathan Cossu Photography
