Wedding Tip - Guests Come First
Updated: Feb 20
While this is YOUR SPECIAL DAY, it’s vital that you bother to think of others. You’ll really need to get a grip on the approximate number of guests you’ll invite and that will expect to be attending - both the ceremony and the reception. The more people, the tougher the challenge for catering, hotels, reception, and yes... the photographer will also need to know, so they can plan accordingly. Knowing the number of guests, availability of services, and expense up front will help you have the best day (and most important guests in attendance). While it is your special day, juggling everyone’s schedule requires notice... and the more, the better; with polite reminders just in case.
As a rule of thumb, allow for 25 to 30 square feet per guest. That may seem like a lot, but it’s not if you count the space you’ll need for the tables, bustling waiters, the band, and the dance floor. Knowing the number of guests that will likely attend effects the amount of space, food, wait-staff, and photographers. We figure 2 cameramen or camerawoman minimum is what you need.
