Wedding Guest Insights

A huge amount has happened this past two years – we’ve all been through so much collectively and are viewing the world and the way we live our lives quite differently now. With this in mind, we set out to find out the views of wedding guests today.

What are the most important features of a ‘good wedding’? Do your guests want to come and relax and be looked after? Or do they enjoy participating and playing an active part? What do they think about wedding gifts? Are they keen to choose their own presents, or do they prefer your guidance? And what about the awkward issue of asking for cash in place of gifts? Are they renting outfits to wear, or buying new? What are some of their concerns about attending a wedding?
