Why Should You Care About What Your Guests Want?
It’s your big day, after all. While you and your spouse will remain the center of attention, knowing what people are looking forward to can help you figure out where you should put your efforts and budget. For example, you may want to allocate a large portion of the budget to food and entertainment and less on the decor.
If the majority of your wedding guests are millennials, it’s helpful to know what they want to see at a wedding reception. At the end of the day, it’s all about creating lifelong memories.
What’s Not Important to Include During Your Reception?
Planning a wedding is hard. You might be hung up on certain ‘old school’ traditions that may not be necessary or meaningful for your big day. For example, the classic cake smash may have been the thing to do a few years ago, but more couples care less about the quirky photo and more about keeping a clean face for the rest of their wedding party. Some couples are even ditching the cake altogether for ice-cream carts, donut walls, cake buffets, or candy stations. Millennial couples strive to have their guests experience something new.
Another thing you can cross off the list is party favors. While they are cute at the moment, your guests will appreciate the experience they had at your wedding a lot more than a little trinket.
