There were more than two million weddings in the U.S. in 2012, according to The Wedding Report. Of those, 350,000 couples opted for destination weddings, reports The Knot. Whether you are getting married on a beach halfway across the country or in a chapel a few blocks from home, it is important to make your out-of-town guests feel welcome.
Give Plenty of Notice
Reserve a block of rooms at a nice hotel, so your guests can enjoy a group discount and potentially spend time together. Finding a hotel that includes complimentary amenities—such a breakfast buffet or evening drinks—can help take the sting out of the cost of travel.
While you're at it, ask a rental car agency at the airport to set aside a group of cars for your guests and negotiate the best possible price.
Acknowledge Their Presence
