When it comes to wedding weekends, most people are familiar with the Rehearsal Dinner but what about the Welcome Party, After Party and Farewell Brunch? What purpose do these events serve and how did they get to be so popular? Keep scrolling for our take as well as reasons you might want to consider incorporating them into your wedding weekend with the help of a planner!
First, A Case For The Wedding Weekend
Why consider a full wedding weekend? Most couples spend over a year planning their wedding to celebrate it with family and friends for only a few hours. Extending your wedding to include events the day before and/or after allows you more time with guests and an opportunity to fully soak in the main event. There is no longer the pressure to thank or greet everyone at your reception. In extending, you reduce your stress and elevate the overall guest experience. It may even make the trip more worthwhile for those traveling a far distance!
3 Reasons To Hire A Planner For Your Full Wedding Weekend
Convinced yet? If you’re going to take the leap and extend your wedding to a multi-day day event, you might as well do it right! Our biggest tip for elevating your wedding weekend is to hire a planner – for all of it – and here’s why:
- Reduced Stress – Isn’t that why you hire a planner in the first place? Do yourself a favor and pull a planner in for the entire week. Your partner and family will thank you as it will alleviate the need for them to step in and help with things such as the Rehearsal Dinner. Then, come the big weekend, your VIP crew will be able to truly enjoy themselves.
- Money Saved – Planners are pros at stretching your dollar. They’re able to leverage their industry experience and knowledge to come up with creative solutions. Such solutions could include reusing florals or repurposing signage between events.
- Cohesive Design – This is important for branding your wedding weekend which again adds to the overall guest experience. Planners can cross-utilize vendors for each of the events to achieve cohesion. The key is for the ancillary events to act as extensions of the wedding itself as opposed to completely separate events.
