Tips of planning a wedding in Red Deer!
While here, you want your guests to enjoy their time in Red Deer. Putting together an arrival package to include prior to and/or upon your guests’ arrival is a cute idea that makes your day that much more special. Here are a few ideas to help out-of-town guests feel like they’ve arrived for a grand occasion:
1. Prior to arrival, send out a list of accommodation resources including Red Deer hotel options and RV & camping options.
2. Upon arrival, include a fun information packet of things to do and see in Red Deer. List the pubs and unique lunch spots recommended during lunch on your wedding day. Mention kid-friendly things to do, a brewery tour, your favourite park, a few of our many museums and the nearest shopping locations. Take a look at our complete list of "Things to do" for some inspiration. As a bonus, it’s wonderful to have a growler of local craft beer waiting with some local munchies in a welcome basket when they arrive!
3. Have a plan for after-hours if your reception is going to end early. For guests wanting to continue the party, send them off to a centralized spot.
