Special Welcome for Out of Town Wedding Guests


Are you expecting out of town guests for your wedding?  These special guests have gone out of their way (and out of their pocket) to share the experience of your wedding day.  WhereBridesGo.com loves the idea of taking a little extra time to make sure their time away from home will be enjoyable.

Forgetting a few small items while packing can throw your guests into a panic and have them driving  to the nearest convenience store for some of their "must haves" that were left behind.  A small gift bag filled with a few of those easily forgotten items will be a relief to your guest and greatly appreciated.  Below is a list of items that the Team at WhereBridesGo.com thinks will make great gift bag fillers for your traveling guests:




This list is not all-inclusive and should be customized to your theme, destination and the guests.  For example, depending on the location of your wedding, you  might want to include a small fan, sunscreen or lotion.  Don't forget that you have already purchased wedding favors that might be suitable for including in the gift bag!!

What are you doing for your out of town guests? Share your ideas with us!

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.
