It seems apt to write a blog for the Wedding Hand wedding website about one aspect which is becoming more and more noticeable at many weddings these days….. and that is the influx of guests which have traveled from far and wide to attend the day. Gone are the day when your Great Aunt and Uncle who had traveled 200 miles up or down the motorway were the most far flung members of the family to attend. These ‘foreign’ guests were greeted with praise for traveling the distance and making the effect to attend. In days gone by the wedding guests may have been greeted like the great sea explorer might have been greeted by natives of an Island, both with novelty and excitement!
Nowadays in the modern world, people regularly commute such distances and the furthest travelling wedding guests which attend todays weddings’ have usually come on a plane, often from another continent. In days gone by it would have been unthinkable for a family member to make the voyage from the other side of the world to come back for a wedding. But now it really is the norm. In fact the wedding is usually the catalyst or the excuse to make the trip to see old friends and relatives.
When we came up with he idea for the Wedding Hand website we new that what better way to convey all the information to guests across the world was via the internet. Posting heavy cardboard wedding invites to the far reaches of the globe can be both in-practical and un-reliable. We also took in to consideration wedding couples sending emails with specific details on and as an alternative we created features on Wedding Hand so that guests could see the whole event, making it easy to sort their travel plans out accordingly. The google maps feature works great for guests traveling from abroad to see the nearest airports. Its always daunting booking accommodation in another country, so the trip advisor rating give guests unfamiliar with the area peace of mind when booking the hotel.
We understand that in the global community of today people are willing to travel far and wide and WeddingHand want to take the stress out of this and obviously the site can be used anywhere in the world with internet access.
So please enjoy using the site where ever in the global village you may be!
