Ideas to Thank Your Guests Who Attend Your Wedding

Aug 18, 2007
The guests are the most important part of your wedding. A wedding is meant to share the happiness and joy with your guests, no matter they are your friends or relatives. The wedding may become meaningless without the guests. As a result, it is always a good idea to think of ways to thank your guests.

You may say that you have already prepared wedding favors for your guests and it is already a mean of saying thank you to them. However, you can think of delivering your thank you message through out the whole wedding reception. Below are some ideas you can think of.

A Wedding Slide Show

A good way of saying thank you to your guests is to prepare a wedding slide show. Although some may consider this as an entertainment, it can be much more meaningful than just an entertainment. Unless the slide show carries a meaning, there is no point to prepare this slide show. Of course you do not need to type the words "Thank You" in your slide show. Instead, you can convey your message through the photos.

When you are choosing your photos for the slide show, you can try to put more efforts on searching the photos of you and your guests. Your friends will be touched if you can find a photo you took with him / her when both of you were small. You may also find a photo taken at the time your uncle brought you to the park.

By doing this, your guests will be involved in the slide show and both of you and your guest will start memorizing the good old times.

Taking Instant Photos

No matter you hire a wedding photographer or not, you will certainly have someone to take the wedding photos. You can ask your friends to help you to take instant photos in your wedding. When a guest come, you can take a photo with him / her and you will give the instant photo to him / her as a gift.

The number one advantage of taking instant photos is that it will be unique. Everyone will get a gift of his / her own. Besides, you may have a short chat with your guest when you are taking the instant photos. Both of you and your guests can enjoy the time of getting together, although it is only a short period of time.

Take Away Wedding Favor

The last thing you have to prepare to thank your guests is the wedding favor. This is in fact a must in your wedding reception. Most couple will try their best to think of a unique wedding favor. However, sometimes a simple favor can also be very unique. For example, if you are going to prepare traditional candle as wedding favor, you can mark the guests' names on the candles so that everyone can get a candle with his / her own name. This already makes a candle more meaningful and to some extends unique.
