A New Orleans destination wedding is guaranteed to create amazing memories. Unfortunately, like all big events, there will be a few people who will have to miss out on the fun. Scroll through to see which ways you can still incorporate them into your special day.

Gift Them a New Orleans Favor

When putting together your wedding favors for your guests, be sure to have a few extra to send these to guests who could not make it there. Since it’s a New Orleans wedding, be sure to add in some New Orleans based items such as Mardi Gras Beads, beignet mix from Café Du Monde, pralines, or masks. Your guests will be delighted to receive this gift and will make them feel they were there.  

Have a Photo Display Area 

Adding some photos of your loved ones who could not be there would be a nice and easy way to include and honor them. Let your venue know about this so they can help you plan it all out. Designating a photo display area for you and your guests to see their faces is sure to make everyone happy. It will be like they are right there with you!

Livestream the Ceremony

It is always fun to come up with new and creative ways of doing things in today’s world. A more modern approach is to livestream the wedding ceremony. This is something you can discuss with your photographer or videographer beforehand. It is a way to include guests who could not physically attend the wedding, and instead they can attend it virtually.
