Show Off the City Sights

Your wedding may not be on the beaches of St. Thomas, but it still may seem like a destination wedding to your guests traveling from out of town.  If you have a lot of out-of-town wedding guests, make their visit into a vacation by showing them the sights of your city.  You can get free brochures about things to see from your town's tourist or visitor's center and put them in hospitality bags for your guests so that they can explore the sights in their free time.  Alternatively, you could arrange a tour of the city for your guests.  I recently had one bride who incorporated a trolley tour of Chicago into her wedding day activities!  After the ceremony, the bride and groom made their grand exit onto the trolley and traveled around the city with their guests before returning to their venue for the reception.  The added bonus of treating their guests to a tour was that they got some unique wedding photos, as you can see from some of the great shots by Dave Price Photography and Video.

No vacation is complete without souvenirs, so give your guests wedding favors with a connection to the city.  For a Chicago wedding, for example, you could give bags of Garrett Popcorn or Frango mints.  Make your wedding weekend into a vacation for your guests, and they are sure to have a blast.
