Maybe a breakfast or brunch the next day? I am considering one for all my OOT guests.

You could pay for their airfare, since that’s quite a bit of money they will have to spend (assuming you have the financial wherewithal).

Ohhh I hope people respond!

Some thoughtful touches I saw at weddings: Welcome bags with ‘local’ treats (Upstate NY wedding had Saratoga Springs water), any welcome bags with bottled water & advil, pashminas  at a wedding with an outdoor terrace during the fall, shuttles for guests to the local hotels, suggestions for places to go to an after-party…

We did a brunch the next day at my dad’s house.  It was supposed to be for all of the OOT family and brial party.  Really it ended up being a hangover meal for the few members of the bridal party that actually managed to get out of bed for it.

In addition to the hotel bags, transportation is great for OOT guests who often don’t know their way around.

The most thoughtful thing we’ve ever experienced was not tangible but in action. We really appreciate it when the couple makes the effort to make sure everyone feels included and wanted, especially if they are the odd man out with no other familiar faces to hang out with. We’ve attended very private weddings where we literally were the only friends and the rest were relatives (that we didn’t know very well or at all) and we really appreciated the couple stopping by frequently to thank us for coming and chatting.
