Advice for a Smooth Event!
Give your guests and relatives specific tasks to do and everyone will feel a part of the celebration!
Most people love to feel useful during an event. Giving guests specific things to do will also get people mingling. Saying to Aunt Fanny
"you're in charge of making sure all of his relatives meet all of our relatives.", will give her a chance to feel useful; and will make
sure that both sides of the families meet each other and don't feel left out. Or putting a shy guest or relative in charge of
asking guests for their music selection requests or maybe making sure guests all have something to drink. You can
assign several people to the same task for a large event. And remember wedding parties are much more fun
when everyone feels a part of the inner circle and celebration. Much better than being waited on!
Plus it is an honor to be included in the wedding party and making the event run smoothly.
Being given a task to perform lets people know you value them and their skills.
Try to match their skill for the task if it is an especially important
task. Matching important tasks to the guest's natural skill will
reap the benefit of a soother event. You might want to
send nice notes prior to the event requesting
assistance, or call them on the phone
and tell them you're counting
on them and put them on
"Get Uncle Marvin and all the other older men in the wedding party to make sure to dance at least one dance with each of the women
you assign to them. Ask Uncle Marvin to also wear his old saddle oxford shoes for flare! Some of the younger guys might be
encouraged to dance with some of the more shy wedding guests with a little coaxing! Also get the better dancers
paired up to give the dance floor a little pazazz!
Get Aunt Harriet and her cousin Jordan to be in charge of getting the immediate family members together to form a circle on the
dance floor. When the band begins to play the song "Love and Marriage' that will be their cue to round up the people for
the circle! This is a really great way to get people moving and feeling included!
Get the youngest guests in charge of bubble blowing during the dance. It will keep them occupied and less likely to get in trouble!
Plus some wonderful happy bubbles will be floating about! Keeping the young terrorist busy can be challenging!
