Don’t get us wrong, we know that is an honor to be invited to a Destin or 30A wedding celebration, and furthermore we know the amount of work you put into planning yours, but there are a few things you ought to keep in mind throughout the process that can¬†help make for an unforgettable day in everyone’s mind.¬†Those things (below) are what we have come to notice that guests hate:

1. Having to pay for their drinks – Even if a top-shelf bar isn’t within your budget, no one should have to take out their wallets at a party. Unlimited wine and beer (even if it’s just for an hour or two) is a great compromise.

2. Too many long speeches – Hearing from multiple members of the wedding party (bridesmaids crying, groomsmen recounting less-than-sober experiences), mothers, fathers, crazy in-laws can get old, real fast. Try limiting the number of speeches between the rehearsal dinner and the reception.

3. Sitting in undesirable locations – Sitting too close to the DJ and too far away from the action can ruin a guests’ experience. Try to create a seating chart in which everyone is nearby and feels free to socialize.

4. Couples who spend more on decor than their guests’ good time –¬†Flowers aren’t exactly top of mind when it comes to a guest and how they remember your wedding (sorry florists). Key factors have always been and will always be food and entertainment.

5. ¬†Limited food – Speaking of food, if a guest gets hangry, they’ll leave. Avoid the light bites and opt for real food that everyone will enjoy.

…and that’s just a few of things that guests hate at a wedding reception in Destin. But the truth is all are completely manageable when you hire the Bay House to coordinate your event!
