WEDDING HACKS: Thoughtful Wedding Ideas that Just Make Sense!


(and make life easier for you and your guests!)

Looking for ways to make your wedding more personalised and meaningful for you and your guests? Check out Wedding Journal’s wedding hacks!

Wedding Bathroom Basket

While it’s not essential, your guests will appreciate the thought you put into their needs with a bathroom basket full of essentials to help them freshen up – with things such as deodorant, sanitary products and other toiletries. You can even make this cute with a little sign and bow!

Unplugged Ceremony

One thing you don’t want in your official photographs is a bunch of mobile phones crowding your first picture on the aisle! Guests will want to capture your big moment so how do you avoid this? Get the message across with a creative and friendly sign of course!

Song Requests On Your Invites

Your wedding day may have a variety of guests of all ages, tastes and interests so how do you make sure everyone is enjoying themselves at the afterparty? Add a song request option at the bottom of your invites so your guests can pick a song they’re excited to hear!

Wedding Flip Flops

It’s after party time and you’re ready to dance the night away, but it’s only a matter of time until them heels are begging to come off! Keep the party going by leaving out a basket full of flip flops your guests can slip on when their feet tire! You can also personalise these to suit your wedding aesthetic.

Take An Umbrella (we are in Ireland after all!)

This one is especially needed for outdoor ceremonies – and even if it is abroad in a sunny country, you can never guarantee when a shower may strike. Trust us, if it happens you’ll be grateful you did it and your guests will appreciate the gesture!

Sit Where YOU Like!

Traditionally, the bride’s family are supposed to sit on the bride’s side and the groom’s family are to sit on the groom’s side of the aisle… but we’re in 2022 and things have changed! You can make up your own rules and the best way to get the message across is another creative sign.

Lead The Way

If you’re planning a big wedding in a larger venue with multiple different areas, this is a great way to keep your guests in the know! You can highlight all your fun features on a sign pointing in that direction which will help your guests get the most of your day and make for cute décor!

Your Wedding Map

Although we are living in the modern world where you can just ‘google map it’, sometimes the internet gives the wrong directions or people lose signal and their phones die. Prevent your guests from getting lost by sending a wedding map with your invites which has the address and highlights all the main areas and how to get to and from them.
