Guest tips for destination weddings

I found these helpful “Etiquette” tips in the fall/winter 2011, THE KNOT Magazine,  pg 332 just in case you missed the issue.

1. forewarn your friends: You should tell your bridal party  about the destination before you ask them to stand by your side, so they can gracefully decline if their finances are to tight.  You can make their trip a bit easier if you can offer to pay a portion to cover some expenses.

2. Get a Grip:  Don’t feel bad if some of your family and friends decline on making the trip. Their fees for travel, hotels expenses and car rentals maybe more than their budget allows.  Think of holding a 2nd smaller reception at home for those who can not make the trip.

3. Welcome your guests:  Be sure to place a gift basket  in each hotel room full of essentials for the trip and goodies that will remind them of the setting you have chosen.
