We learn so much from our Facebook Fans! Recently, on our Facebook page I asked our Fans to share their wedding-related questions with me. They asked some great questions and I ended up getting help answering some of them from fans who had already gotten married. They shared great tips with those who had dates coming up! You can see the entire discussion at the link below but I’ll recap the highlights here. Q&A on our Facebook page
One of the brides-to-be had a question regarding how to let guests know about extra rooms at the bed and breakfast where the wedding was being held. The B&B’s requirement was that she rent all six rooms for two nights; however, she only needed them for one night. Her budget would love it if she could get some of her guests to reserve the rooms for the night after the wedding, but she wasn’t sure how to let her guests know …
So, a long-time fan who recently was married mentioned that she had had a similar problem and her solution was to share this information on a card that was included with her save-the-dates. By getting the word out early, her guests had plenty of time to consider this option.
There was also discussion around a question of how to let guests know there would be no alcohol served at the reception. Those who responded felt they really didn’t have to tell anyone. They said that at their weddings no one seemed disappointed that there was no alcohol. The consensus was that the wedding website was a great place to mention details such as this.
Another topic was that of not wanting children at their wedding and how to get the word out. It really isn’t appropriate to add this information to the invitation but it can be mentioned on a wedding website. Also, hopefully your guests will know that only those whose names appear on the inner envelope are invited to the wedding. And if you still need help, you can get your mom and your groom’s mom to to use the tried and true “grapevine” method of communicating, too!
We hope you liked seeing what other brides are concerned about and we will share our Facebook comments again soon!
