@ausbrazz:  I think you can let them know about attractions local and those in a nearby city as well. I live near Toronto (30 minute drive) and if I had only told my guests about things in my city… well… honestly I think it would have ended with glow in the dark mini putt and bowling which, lets face it, you can do anywhere 😉

Also include some practical information about ammenities close to the hotel: coffee shop, good restaurants, drug store/grocery store for emergency safety pins or whatever, department store in case someone forgot socks or something, liquor store, etc.

@ausbrazz:  Why don’t you suggest some activities they might have a chance to encounter near the airports they’ll be flying into or towns they’ll be driving through? I wouldn’t spend too much time detailing the wonders of Farmer Dell’s diary farm. Instead, think more regionally perhaps.

I live in a busier place so I put my/our favorite attractions and then put a link to TripAdvisor. It’ll get folks going in the right direction. Good luck!

Number One, Don’t feel bad – They are coming to see you TWO. With that said, of course they will 0robably be coming a few days prior to wedding and/or even stay after the wedding – so giving ideas would be helpful.

Don’t forget to think about different activities for a range of budgets !

I would list local events and activities, but if you are also going to list out of town things to list numbers for car services.

Perhaps list some places that you and your FI go to with a little back story!!

@ausbrazz:  FI and I are getting married in Chcgo, so we posted museums, skating, cultural and sports events, fave restaurants/coffee shops, that sort of thing.

That said, we actually live on the west coast near a town of 18 people.  It’s got one coffee shop, one winery, a shuttered post office, and a glass blowing studio.  People love to visit it just because it’s a quaint getaway for the morning.  Also, the town has some of its local history posted on placards.  Anything like this going on near you?  If I were one of your guests, I seriously would go both to the paper museum and to the dairy — sounds like fun!

@ausbrazz:  I just listed the attractions for the local city since most guests live within 2 hours of the venue so they will know all about attractions in the two nearby bigger cities (Orlando & Jacksonville.)

Not much, since people won’t have time to hang out, but we have a lot of microbreweries around here, and our guests love beer.

  • Wedding: September 2013 - Ontario, Canada

We are getting married about 45 min outside of Toronto and half of our guests are flying in from Europe. We have organised a few bigger day trips like a day in Toronto and a day at Niagara Falls that our guests can join if they want to. We also listed things like hiking trails, the local movie theatre, mini golf, batting cages, golf courses, outlet and regular malls. We also added a list of favourite restaurants and a few bars/clubs. I think that will give people plenty of ideas to keep them entertained in the run up to the weddinsaying think it’s a nice touch to add places you enjoyed when you where younger etc. we are going to lunch in TO at a place SO worked while in collage. It’s a nice little personal touch I think.

@ausbrazz:  How about your favorite restaurants, favorite places to shop, any local parks you like, stuff like that?  Ooo and you don’t have to label it as “attractions,” that’s a lot of pressure for your town’s movie theater 😉 maybe just “things to do”?

These are the things we put:

– Drive around to see the fall color

– Go to a sports game and listed home games on during the week of our wedding

– We are getting married at an attraction in itself, so we suggested people come early and spend a few hours exploring

– There’s a beer festival on the day before the wedding, so we put that

– Go haunted housing as we’re getting married a few days before Halloween 

I just googled my city and “top ten things to do” and went through pages and pages until I picked out the gems!
