Step 1 Provide Clear Directions to your Venue

One of the easiest ways to make your wedding more guest-friendly is to make sure that your guests know where they’re going.

Why not go the extra mile and add clear written directions too? We all know technology can fail us sometimes and phone signals can drop out if your venue is out of the way.

Also, be sure to include a list of accommodation options nearby for those who are from out-of-town.

This adds a bit of fun and anticipation for your guests as they travel to your wedding together.
