Looking for ways to make your destination beach wedding guests feel right at home? After a long trip to your wedding location, they will definitely appreciate the gesture!
Many brides and grooms want to make their destination beach wedding guests comfortable upon their arrival to the wedding location. It doesn’t matter whether you are having a destination beach wedding in the States or if you’re traveling across the globe to an exotic locale. Your guests will appreciate some simple comforts after their travels.
It doesn’t require a large investment or hours of planning to come up with these gift ideas, either. In fact, many resort locations or hotels provide each guest with a welcome present upon arrival, especially if you signed up for a destination beach wedding package of some sort with their in-house wedding coordinator.
Here are some easy ways to make your destination beach wedding guests comfortable when they reach your wedding location:
Leave them a welcome basket—Cheese, wine, snacks, and a cozy bathrobe are all great items to place in a welcome basket in each room. Arrange for your wedding coordinator to set this up or enlist help from one of your bridal attendants beforehand. A fresh vase of flowers is also a nice touch and can make the rooms feel much homier. Don’t forget activity pamphlets, maps, and directions for convenience!
Provide beach essentials—Similar to a welcome basket, a bag of beach essentials can be provided so your guests have everything they need to spend a few relaxing days on the beach. Give them an oversized beach towel (or two), suntan lotion, aloe lotion (just in case!), lip balm with SPF protection, and a pair of sunglasses. Bottled water and decorative fans are also helpful, and depending on your budget, you can even give them a paperback bestseller to enjoy while they soak up the sun.
Leave them credit for room service or a movie rental—You ask the hotel concierge to credit each room with a certain amount or have room service deliver snacks and drinks immediately when your guests check in. You can also leave a note on their pillow that gives them a complimentary on-demand movie rental so they can enjoy a night in after a long flight. These are simple ways you can make your destination beach wedding guests feel right at home when they arrive to your wedding location.
