💍 RSVP for the events you're attending
Make sure you're aware of which events you've been invited to, like the rehearsal or welcome dinner, and which you and your +1 can attend (they might be different!). Even if you're in the wedding party, send back that card or fill out the survey to help the couple stay organized.

💍 Make travel reservations
If schedules and budget allow, arrive the day before to avoid travel delays. If you're comparing the official hotel to other lodging options, take your transportation costs into consideration. Make sure to mention the couple's name if booking at their suggested hotel to be counted under the group rate and block.
