Wedding Tip Thursday: What to do for Out-of-Town Wedding Guests



Gallant Fox Photography

Last night I attended a Favorite Things Party. “The Girls” got together and we all shared one of our favorite things by drawing names and exchanging gifts. Seeing what each person brought and hearing about it gave us fun insights into their personality.

Why not use this idea as part of your wedding welcome to out of town guests? Sharing some of your favorite things on a cute print out with welcome bags or even a list on your wedding website is a cool Idea for giving your guests insight into your personality! The list could include favorite stores, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. along with their address/phone number.

Be specific – tell them your favorite time to go; favorite dish to order – have fun giving them a tour of your town. Need some ideas? The list below provides a sample of what you could do for guests staying in downtown Raleigh:

A Few of Our Favorite Things

Morning Times – Visit first thing in the morning for fresh-brewed Counter Culture Coffee.

Krispy Kreme – Look for the “Hot Now” sign and swing by to see the donuts being made. You can even wear a paper hat while eating the warm glazed donuts.

Deco – Pick up a unique keepsake or stock up on fun cards at this downtown shop.

Chuck’s – The best burger in town with fries and a shake…simple is sometimes best. But these gourmet burgers are amazing and the unusual dipping sauces for the fries are all delicious.

Pie Bird – Get some dessert in this quaint pie shop. We recommend the honey sea salt pie.

Moon and Lola – Need some accessories for your wedding outfit? This local store has fun jewelry!

Sitti – Have dinner at Sitti and ask for their homemade garlic whip with pitas as you browse the menu. We love their salad entrée specials and flatbreads.

The Oxford – Enjoy a British-inspired night cap at our favorite Gastropub.

Have fun with this project!
