We find more and more couples who want ideas for a weekend party plus wedding. With many families living across the country, weddings are a time for the “gathering of the clan”. Couples are planning weekend events around their wedding day as a way for family and friends to take maximum advantage of their time together. It may seem overwhelming to think of having to plan two or three more events on top of the ceremony and reception, but engaging the help of friends and family and our experienced consultants, can make a huge difference.
You will need to cover the basics of course. Arrange for accommodations, (hotels, resorts, private homes, bed and breakfast) first. Arrange for food – one evening meal together, a Bar-BQ in someone’s backyard, a picnic in the park or all of these. A trip to a winery may be in order for a wine tasting. Be sure to arrange for transportation for all. Think about activities: golf tournaments, tennis, or softball, basketball, tag football if the group is up for it.
Boating, water skiing, fishing, hiking, snowboarding, and biking are all possibilities for more active family members. If you are living in an area unfamiliar to your family members, consider arranging a walking tour of your town or a bus tour. What about a spa day for both the men and the women? Is a special movie set to open on your wedding weekend? Why not purchase a block of tickets for your family and friends? Let us help make this extension of your wedding celebration meaningful for you and your friends.
