Pre-Wedding Awkwardness

Whom a bride and groom choose to be with them as they say “I do” is an important task. The bridesmaids and groomsmen not only plan your bachelor/bachelorette parties but they also help keep the party alive. In making this difficult decision, you usually end up with a variety of people. Brides and grooms choose elementary school friends, college friends, brothers, sisters, and even long lost cousins to be closest to them on their big day. However, 90 percent of the time these people have no clue whom their fellow bridesmaids/groomsmen are. Unwanted awkwardness on your wedding day is a result from this exact unfamiliarity.

From the bridesmaid/groomsman perspective this awkwardness can be an issue.  If you’re single, you feel pressured to end up in a relationship with the person you walk down the aisle with. If you’re married or in a relationship, you just want to get away from this person to spend time with your loved one. So, how do you combat this awkwardness to make your wedding day one of the best days of your life? Engage in some pre-wedding bonding activities!

Start off by booking hotel rooms the night before the wedding! That way there is no worry of people trying to get home if they’ve had a little too much to drink. Once the rooms are booked, try out one or many of these activities!

Pre-Wedding Field Day

Enjoy the beautiful riverfront at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Sioux Falls and plan a field day. You can divide the teams into men versus women or randomly put them together. Plan games like potato sack races, egg tosses, three-legged races, or even a water balloon fight with permission from the hotel of course! This will engage your bridal party in some competitive yet lighthearted fun that will help make memories. If you want to amp up the fun, include some delicious seasonal drinks for hydration!

Picnic at Falls Park

The Falls are one of the many beautiful attractions of Sioux Falls. Why not enjoy them? After your pre-wedding field day, walk from the Hilton to Falls Park on the bike trails for a picnic. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen can splash around in the water, throw a Frisbee, and enjoy some cheese and crackers in the nice afternoon sun. The water is not only relaxing, but will cool you off after working so hard to win those field games!

Sioux Falls Wedding Reception Venue | Hilton Garden Inn South 1

Congratulations on your engagement!  Now, “When is your wedding?”  “Where is the reception?”  “Where is the ceremony?”  “Where will guests stay?”  These are just some of the questions that friends and family ask immediately after you get engaged because they are so excited to celebrate with you!

Wouldn’t it be an amazing feeling to respond to those questions with just one answer?  “My entire wedding is all in one location.”  The Hilton Garden Inn South or the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown.

Let’s face it – we live in South Dakota which means we have unpredictable weather year round.  This makes it trickier to plan outdoor ceremonies.  Plus many couples today are choosing to have a less traditional style wedding to better reflect their personalities.  This means couples are looking for an alternative to the traditional church ceremony.

Sioux Falls Wedding Reception Venue | Hilton Garden Inn South | Ceremony 1

Our creative event managers at both our Hilton Garden Inn locations are fantastic at tailoring your entire day to fit your every need and that includes your ceremony too!  If you are planning a large party, we can host the ceremony and reception all in the same banquet room.  Or if you are looking at having a more intimate gathering, we can host the ceremony and reception in two separate banquet rooms.  At both Hilton Garden Inn locations, we have access to staging, arches, pillars and whatever other accents make your ceremony come to life.

The benefits of having your wedding day all inclusive:

Eliminates the stress of working with multiple locations.  It’s a full time job planning a wedding.  Working with multiple locations means different deadlines, different rules and other details to remember.

Putting together invitations are a breeze!  You won’t need to include a different insert for ceremony, reception or hotel accommodations because it will all be at the same location.

Easy travel and convenience for your guests.  This is especially true for out-of-town guests.  Rather than hoping GPS will direct them to the right locations, your guests can check in to their hotel room, get ready and just pop down the elevator to the ceremony and reception.

Save money.  Hosting your entire wedding at one location eliminates extra expense.  Your photographer does not need to travel from place to place.  They can capture photos straight from the ceremony to reception.  Check with your DJ about running sound for your ceremony and reception.  You can use the same decorations for both the ceremony and reception.

Bridesmaids and Groomsmen.  Our event managers will be glad to make arrangements for you and your wedding party to get ready in one of our spacious suites.  Some brides even love getting to spend the night before the big day with their bridesmaids so they can wake up and start doing hair and make-up.

Come check us out at both our Hilton Garden Inn Sioux Falls South and Hilton Garden Inn Downtown for an all-inclusive beautiful wedding experience right here in Sioux Falls.
