After months of planning, the big day has finally arrived. Everything seems to be falling perfectly into place until you realize that several of your guests are late. In addition to being stressful, this occurrence could cause a ripple effect that will cause problems with the rest of your wedding day. The good news is that with the right techniques, this problem likely won’t occur so that you can enjoy your wedding day without any problems.
The timing of the ceremony and reception are two of the most important details to include in your invitation. However, there are no guarantees that your guests will be able to keep track of the invitation in the months leading up to the wedding. To ensure that everyone has the correct time fresh in their minds, it’s a good idea to send out a reminder text or email a few days before the wedding so that you can be confident that everyone’s on the same page.
If you really want to ensure that everyone arrives on time, then you can utilize a bus charter to arrange it so that everyone literally arrives at the same time. While, at first glance, this may seem a little out of the ordinary, choosing this approach provides plenty of opportunities for you to begin entertaining your guests even before they arrive at the wedding venue. Plus, it ensures that no one shows up exceptionally early and gets in the way of last-minute preparations.
It’s likely that you’ve chosen your wedding venue because it’s special to you in some way. Therefore, you likely know the area surrounding the venue fairly well, meaning that you can identify potential bottlenecks that could cause people to arrive late. To help get the party started on time, make sure to include mention of these potential bottlenecks with insider tips on how to avoid them.
Some people tend to be late arrivers no matter how much you set them up for success. To help ensure your big day goes smoothly, you may want to provide these individuals with some personalized attention. Either you or someone you designate should check-in with these individuals to remind them of the ceremony start time and ensure that all of their schedule-related questions are answered.
Ultimately, even with the best-laid plans, you may still have some individuals who show up late to your wedding. If that happens, don’t let it steal your joy. Instead, go with the flow and spend extra time talking with the guests who did arrive on time. Taking this approach will ensure that you’re able to look back on your wedding day with fond memories instead of stress and regret.
