We are wedding planners – these are the 4 things guests will remember from the wedding, the rest is a waste of money

It’s easy to get carried away by the excitement of planning a wedding and be tempted to spend more than you normally would — or planned to.

But as wedding planners who have organized and witnessed hundreds of offbeat affairs, these industry experts know what the money really is worth.

As a bride-to-be or groom-to-be, every little detail counts in the run-up, but on the wedding day there are some aspects you may not notice.

And as for your guests, well, there are few things they remember often after the event and the rest is a blur – so here’s what REALLY matters.

Things guests REALLY care about

1. Music and entertainment

Georgie Davies, 30, of Georgina Rose Events said you can never have too much music.

“Spend the money on whatever band you’ve got your eye on,” she said, even if they’re expensive.

Poppy of Poppy Sienne Events agrees, saying, “A band/DJ that isn’t very interactive will be remembered and potentially put a damper on the day.”

So make your music a priority and your guests will enjoy themselves.

2. The personal touch

What makes your wedding different from the next?

“It’s the things that only make sense [the bride and groom]says Georgie, who started her own business in 2020.

So if you met online, show it. Proposed in Italy? Add Italian food.

It’s a great way for guests to learn even more about your relationship, which will be unlike any other.

“Nothing is out of the question,” she says.

3. Your Attitude

All of your guests will remember you both, you’re the focus of the day – so bring the mood,” says Georgie.

If you spend the day fretting over every little detail, guests will notice and you’ll surely break the mood.

Let go, have fun and enjoy every moment because your friends and family will remember it.

4. The food

People love to eat, so it goes without saying that the food you choose matters.

“Guests will remember a good meal,” says Poppy. “But that’s how they’ll remember it if it wasn’t so good, so choose your caterers wisely.”

But don’t bother with fancy, deconstructed food and things made to impress.

“Choose substance over finesse,” says Georgie, who agrees that what you eat makes the difference between success and failure.

Things that don’t matter (they’re a waste of money)

Poppy thinks there are some things that brides and grooms really shouldn’t worry about because they don’t really add anything special to their day.

While Georgia agrees, she says that “weddings are a super personal affair,” so if you really want something then “stick to your guns.”

1. Favors

Wedding gifts are a big gesture and meant as a small thank you to your guests – but the experts say don’t worry.

“If you really want those, then go for food and drink gifts because they’re actually ‘needed’ on the day,” says Poppy.

“Otherwise, unfortunately, small trinkets with your name and wedding date will not be kept by your guests and will most likely remain on the table.”

2. Cake

Traditionally, the bigger the pie, the merrier, but that’s no longer the case.

If you’re on a tight budget, Poppy says you can skip a cake or just use it as dessert.

“Most of the time the guests don’t actually eat it and you either get a mountain of cake to take home or it gets thrown in the trash,” she says.

3. Wedding shoes

Many brides go to as much trouble to choose the perfect pair of shoes as they do to their dress, and some wedding shoes can cost a bomb.

“You wear them for a photo for 10 minutes and nobody cares,” says Georgie. So buy a cheap pair or wear one you already own.

4. Decor

We’re all about the Pinterest-worthy reception, with tablescapes adorned with flower arrangements and endless candles or vases.

And while guests will remember a pretty wedding when they see one, it might not be worth the money.

“Guests won’t remember all the little details you spent hours thinking into, think of the big picture,” says Poppy.

5. Stationary

As much as you think guests will rave about your fancy wedding invitations or custom place cards that cost you thousands, they probably won’t – and they certainly won’t keep them.

“Rather than having a menu for everyone, maybe one or two per table,” Poppy suggests, and it will no doubt save you tons of money to spend elsewhere.
