What to Do With Your Out-of-Town Guests on Wedding Weekend

Updated: May 7, 2023

It’s a tale as old as time: Two people meet. They fall in love. They get engaged. They plan a wedding. They invite their friends. They invite their family. They invite their out-of-town friends and family.

... And then they realize that when wedding weekend comes around, they are going to be too busy to entertain said family! Sure, the wedding and reception are the piece de resistance, but what is the happy couple to do with Auntie Grizelda and Uncle Ernie when it’s time to go over the preparation checklist for the umpteenth time and meet with the caterer (not to mention running out to buy those last-minute gifts for the wedding party!)?

I don’t know about you, but a walking tour sounds pretty ding-dang good to me.

Think about it: A walking history tour covers all the bases. It keeps your guests busy for a good 75 minutes (not even counting travel time). It helps orient them to the city you love (I mean, you must love it, right? You’re getting married here!). It helps your friends and family bond over a shared experience. It introduces them to the flavor of a place they may have never been before.

And with one of our Alexandria Food Tours, it introduces them to flavor, period!

By the end of their tour, your guests will know all the details about a vast array of restaurants – eateries that they’ll want to come back to for a toast after the nuptials, once the rice (or birdseed) has been thrown or the glass has been broken. No need to offer up a multitude of dining suggestions for every palate; Grizelda, Ernie and the gang can rely on Alexandria Food Tours to provide plentiful suggestions!
