With the end of 2020 fast approaching, many couples are beginning to plan their upcoming 2021 weddings. At this point, we’re still expecting social distancing measures to be in place well into next year, so it’s worth having that in mind as you plan virtually every aspect of your wedding. In this blog, we focus specifically on how you can greet and engage your guests in memorable ways at your 2021 wedding. Each of these ideas capitalize on more personalized engagement which is now much more feasible with the trend of smaller weddings becoming increasingly popular.

Personal Notes

If your guest list was trimmed in order to comply with social distancing measures, why not write a personalized note to each of your guests? These notes don’t necessarily have to be long. A simple note thanking the guests for celebrating with you is sure to warm their hearts. Plus, it’s something they can hold on to as a keepsake from your special day. You can place these personalized notes at each guest’s ceremony seat or reception seat.

Song Dedications

Many couples are currently weighing whether they’d like to allocate time for dancing at their wedding. Regardless of which choice you make, we still recommend making music part of your special day. A creative way to do so is dedicating a song to each of your guests. You can execute this plan by providing a script of shoutouts for your emcee. When the time comes for your reception, you just might make your guest’s evening’s with perfectly selected tunes to further fuel your celebration.


Why stop at song dedications? If your guest list is small enough, you could even deliver speeches to each attendee. This is just another example of a silver lining that new wedding formats are presenting us all the time. Rather than hearing a generic thank you speech, your guests will be able to connect with your words on a much more personal level.
