5 Ways to Elevate Your Guest Experience

Invest in Quality Wedding Invitations 

Believe it or not, the magic of your guest experience begins the moment your beautiful invitations go out the door. So, why not wow your guests by investing in high-quality invites that inform and set the tone for your special day? Just don’t forget to include the most essential details, like your wedding date, location, time, and dress code!

Incorporate Luxe Accents 

Between deciding on your theme, table settings, and lighting, there’s no shortage of design ideas you can mix and match to land on the perfect aesthetic. But one of our favorite ways to make a luxe statement is with white orchids, gold accents, and romantic candlelight. Of course, you can always top it off with a stunning chandelier.

Add Signature Cocktails 

Serving up signature cocktails is another great way to personalize and elevate your big day. It gives guests a taste of who you are by highlighting aspects of your personality with a fun nod to your favorite memory or beloved pet. You can even take it a step further and elevate the experience by featuring custom monogram cocktail napkins.

Create an Interactive Lei-making Station

Nothing says aloha like adding a lei-making station with fresh tropical blooms for you and your guests to enjoy together during cocktail hour. This unique addition adds a touch of authentic Hawaiian tradition and cultivates unity among your friends and family. Best of all, it’s a fun and interactive activity that the kids and adults will both enjoy.

Send your Guests off with Sweet Favors They’ll Love

If you want to sweeten your wedding guest experience, send them off with party favors they’ll love, like custom-decorated cookies, cupcakes, or candies they can snack on later. Best of all, edible wedding favors are often more cost-effective than trinket gifts, like shot glasses or ornaments, so you and your wedding budget can feel good about it too.

Whether you add luxe décor, a lei-making station, sweet party favors for your big day, or all the above, there’s no shortage of ways to elevate your wedding guest experience.
