In Seattle we can never be quite sure how our weather is going to turn out. A great way to impress and keep your guests happy is to provide things that will keep them comfortable throughout your ceremony and/or reception. There are a lot of ways to help guests stay comfortable and prepared for the weather.
If you are having an outdoor ceremony think about having shawl or blankets for guests to use. If it’s chilly or even rainy this will be much appreciated by your guests so they can stay warm and focused on your ceremony. You can find some really great cheap shawls or blankets that even match your color scheme and they will be really meaningful and much appreciated. Another thing to have on hand for a Seattle outdoor wedding is umbrellas. If it’s raining guests might have their own but if you supply matching umbrellas it will make your pictures look much nicer. But that is completely up to your preference.
Another place to think about this is beach ceremonies. Most women will be wearing heels, have some flip flops for your guests to wear during the ceremony to make it much easier for them to walk. You can also offer flip flops at your reception for guests that don’t want to dance in their heels.
These little things will make guests much happier and able to share in the joy of your big day. They will appreciate the kind gesture and be able to keep your dance floor going all night.
