For some couples, the wedding day simply isn’t “enough.” Instead, they opt to make a whole fun wedding weekend out of it! From hosting meals to different activities, it’s an opportunity for the bridal party and guests to interact with each other all weekend long, all the while celebrating the couple and their pending nuptials.

Wedding weekends typically begin Friday morning and/or afternoon as guests arrive, with the wedding held Saturday, and activities wrapping up early Sunday. In a nutshell, think of it as planning a short, weekend getaway for a large group of friends – think of things that your guests would like to do or see, what they’d like readily available (food, drinks), and so on.

I’ve outlined some things to consider as you start to plan the weekend that will help to ensure that your guests are comfortable and entertained for the duration of their stay.
