Random Acts of Kindness for a Wedding Day

The week of February 13th is Random Acts of Kindness week.

What is a random act of kindness? Per the google machine, a random act of kindness is an unexpected act or helpfulness, typically for a stranger. But we can do acts of kindness all the time for anyone. This week’s blog will provide some ideas for random acts of kindness during a wedding day for you, your significant other, friends, and family.

During a wedding day, I’m always willing to jump in and lend a hand to help the day go smooth. I’ve helped to pin boutonnieres, assisted with a dress bustle, or helping to make sure the happy couple is where they should be at various times of the event. Let’s look at a few ways that anyone can give a random act of kindness during a wedding.

  • For the bride from the groom, slip a note to them during the pre-wedding activities. Nothing is sweeter than seeing a bride smile at a small gesture from her soon to be husband. The bride can do the same for the groom by sending along a little love note. This can help ease nerves and give the other something to look forward to as the ceremony approaches.
  • For the guests during an outdoor wedding, have a basket of blankets available for keeping warm during the festivities. I have witnessed this and it’s super sweet and guests truly appreciated it
  • Donate left over food from the reception. Work with your caterer to provide food to a homeless shelter or local community.
  • For the wedding party, especially the bridesmaids, let them pick their own shoes – heels or flats. They will truly appreciate it as they help you during the day and celebrate with you all through the night.

What other random acts of kindness can you think of for making a wedding day extra special?
