A welcome box is such a cute and fabulous way to welcome your guests. Fill up the box with local delicacies, travel guide or map of the town and a list of the scheduled activities you have in store for them. An individual welcome note from the bride and groom is sure to make the guest feel special and delighted to be a part of your ceremony.

#2: Dance floor lifesavers

Place a basket filled with dancing shoes aka flip-flops in your wedding colours at the entrance. The female guests of your troop will be surely delighted with this thoughtful gesture. They can slip off their stilettos and get ready to dance the night away.

#3: Travel Guide

Remember that a destination wedding includes a bit of sightseeing and fun and frolic around the town for guests. Help them enjoy their stay by giving them a travel guide with a brief history, important landmarks, and suggestions for local restaurants. Or you can even organise a sightseeing tour for out of town guests and overseas visitors.

#4: Keep the Munchies Ready

If there are breaks between the ceremonies, ensure that you set up a snacks counter for your guests to munch on, while they wait. A table with short eats, chaats, candies, drinks that guests can help themselves to is a great idea. You can even opt for live counters.

#5: Basket of Essentials
