How to be the perfect host when you're the bride/groom.
1- Send invitations early: No one likes to receive a last minute invite, especially to a wedding. Your guests have to organize accommodation, travel, and of course a dazzling outfit. Send your wedding announcement ASAP, especially if you're expecting people to RSVP.
2- Great food makes for a great wedding: Have at least three options on the menu. Must haves are fish, meat, and veggie. The veggie one is often overlooked but vegetarians are everywhere nowadays and you don't want to have unhappy guests and extra waste.
3- Drinks are important too: "Happy" guests provide a great atmosphere at a wedding reception. Variety is the keyword here: wines, champagne (or sparkling will do just fine), beer and several spirits are important. On the other hand, you don't want drunken guests ruining your special day. Ask the staff to try and moderate the alcohol intake when they see fit. Your guests will definitely thank you for it the day after.
4- Music is key to liven things up: choosing the right DJ is often very hard. Your guests are going to have different tastes in music so it's imperative that you have a diverse playlist with a bit of everything on, from house music to 90's pop.
