Wedding essentials to keep your guests happy

Blog63Today on her own blog, fashion designer, author and newlywed Lauren Conrad has revealed those extra touches that helped keep her guests happy during her weekend wedding.

Below we share some of her choice tips you could adopt for your own wedding. 

For the gift bags…

“Our guests stayed at hotels close to the wedding venue, and when they arrived they were each welcomed with a goodie bag filled with weekend essentials,” Conrad reveals. “The tote bags included a couple boxes of water, a bottle of wine, a few snacks, some sweet treats and a recovery kit for the morning after. We also put two apples in every gift bag, to go with the theme of the wedding. This gave our guests a healthy option to snack on!”

For the ceremony…

“When our guests arrived at the venue, they were greeted with champagne and an assortment of mocktails. We were married under a beautiful tent, and before our guests took their seats they each chose a vintage hankie, in case of any happy tears. I love to collect vintage hankies, and about a year ago I started to pick up extras at flea markets and on Etsy to give to our guests on our big day,” says Conrad.

For the reception…

“After the beautiful ceremony, it was time to celebrate with our guests. Because our venue was mostly on grass, we had a bunch of heel protectors for all of the ladies who wore high heels. These were such lifesavers! We were able to walk around on the grass and not have our shoes sink, which was great. We also had a ton of LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s flip flops out on the dance floor, so that our guests could take their heels off and dance the night away with us. And for those who got a little bit chilly after the sun set, we had a bunch of pretty ruffle knit blankets from my LC Lauren Conrad line. They made for great party favours, too!”

For the next day…

“In each of our guests’ gift bags we included a recovery kit. After drinking and dancing all night, I wanted our friends and family to have some reinforcements for the morning after. The recovery kits had packets of emergen-C, Burt’s Bee’s Chapstick, Josie Maran Argon Oil, Sunscreen Chapstick, some pain relievers, band-aids, and a bottle of Never Hungover. Let’s just say everyone agreed that this came in pretty handy the next day.”
