3. GREET YOUR GUEST + THANK YOUR GUEST
If your wedding was anything like mine, you know how hard it is to greet each and every one of your guest when you have a BIG wedding! But you gotta do it! Show Your LOVE + appreciation to your guest. My husband and I made it a point to greet each and everyone of our 600 something guest. We enjoyed sharing warm greetings, hugs and kisses with ALL our dear Family and Friends! Spread the LOVE!! And after your big day is over, remember to send your guest a lovely Thank you card! Thank them for attending and if they gave you a gift.
