Your big day will get all your favorite people together. If your guests are traveling long hours to celebrate your new journey, why not show them a little appreciation? Arrange a memorable pre-wedding activity as a part of your wedding bash to make your guests pumped up for the big day! Here are a few ideas for you:
Throwing a Welcome Party
Arranging a welcome party for your guests can be a great way to kick off your wedding festivities. Especially if the majority of your guests are coming from out of town, a pre-wedding welcome party can give them a great opportunity to meet ahead of the main wedding celebration. Throw the party the night before your wedding, and it can wonderfully work as your rehearsal dinner, before jumping into a formal experience the next day.
Planning a Pool Party
If you’ve booked a resort with a pool for your wedding ceremony, arranging a fun gathering at the poolside is a great way to spend the pre-wedding afternoon. Just set up a poolside counter, blow up a few pool floats, and if you want to, maybe even hire a DJ! But remember, if you haven’t opted for a hotel buyout, arranging a pre-wedding pool party can be difficult and expensive.
Getting Some Yoga On
A fitness-centered pre-wedding activity can be a unique idea that would appeal to your wedding guests. Arrange a low-key yoga session on a beach or any other wonderful outdoor backdrop. Such locations bring in natural refreshments, accommodate a big group of people, and often don’t need any pre-booking. There’s hardly any better way to get geared up for the big day!
Heading Out on a Hike
If you’re heading to a mountain location for your destination wedding, let the guests experience the natural scenery to its fullest. A group hike can be a casual yet great pre-wedding idea to make your guests feel rejuvenated ahead of your big day. A guided hike will keep your guests on the safest paths, but with the added refreshment of immersing in natural splendor.
Offering Hair and Makeup Services
If pampering your guests is really what you want, why not help them to get glammed up on your big day? Bring in extra pre-wedding beauty squads on the morning of the ceremony to get your guests’ makeup and hair done. As a bonus, your wedding album will be filled with more wonderful memories, as even the most camera-shy guests might be more inclined to face the camera looking and feeling their best.
