You have unique needs when you attend a lot of weddings.  What can you build a product or service around?

  • A name change service for new brides makes a nice shower gift.
  • Hire guests if you don’t have enough friends and want to impress others.
  • An intentional area for professional photos where the bride & groom can also greet each guest.  Purchase photos like you would at a cruise instead of favors.
  • Dancing lessons for the guests at the rehearsal dinner.
