Wedding season is on the horizon, and so is the need to prepare your home for guests and the upcoming festivities. If it’s a Pakistani wedding, then the wedding and the herd of guests go hand in hand, plus the preparations of bridal dresses, salon visits everything needs to be ready. However, the most important part of a local wedding is preparing your house for the wedding season.
Especially if you shifted into your new home in al kabir town Lahore, then guests from other cities would be definitely excited to stay at your place.
Firstly, it’s the house of the bride/groom, secondly, it’s fun and something every guest looks forward to when coming to stay over for a wedding.
With some careful and intriguing research, we have come up with a list of how one can take care of their guests in the home during the utter hustle and bustle of a wedding.
1- Hire a cleaning service
Days nearing a wedding are simply chaotic. Despite the proper planning and having a checklist there’s still a lot to do especially with the arrival of guests. In Pakistani culture, it is expected of hosts to take care of their guests. From preparing their sleeping arrangements to preparing meals for the entire household is a responsibility that demands time.
At this hour, hiring cleaners would be the best thing to do. You don’t want to spend time cleaning after everyone’s done at the table right? You need to keep preparations steady and keep your guests company too. Hiring a cleaning service gives ample time to do all of that. You can decide their pay (some negotiations go a long way) unless you have a large home.
2- Declutter the house
Even a new house in Al Kabir Town is not above the clutter that finds its way into a wedding house. When a wedding is scheduled, everything is out. Especially the cameras in your guest’s hands. So count on tons of photos during the day and perhaps the videos! Keeping your house clutter-free is a must that’s why another reason a cleaning service is a sound option.
Plus, guests will be more comfortable in a house where rooms are clean and therefore they have enough space to mingle with one another. This will also encourage your guests to keep their rooms clean too so that there’s no unnecessary mess around.
3- Rent a place
The perks of living in a society like Al Kabir Town Lahore is that you can find rental homes nearby your place. Not all guests can stay at one place. Therefore renting a place, let’s say for a month, gives you ample space to take care of your guests in a proper way.
The rental place can be at a few paces since you are living in a newly developed society chances are new homeowners in your neighborhood may want to rent out a portion if not the entire home. This works too. After the festivities are over for the day everyone can rest comfortably in their rooms.
4- Proper bathroom upgrades
Many do not think about this fact but when guests are coming over you need to prepare the space, not only the room but also the bathroom. Not every guest will be bringing their toiletries (although most do) but despite it, you need to provide them with the basics. Towels, hand soap, tissues, etc, and anything that can be of use must find its way into the bathroom.
When renting the place you can place separate towels (at the very least) and hand soap, disposable toothbrushes, and toothpaste just in case your guests forgot theirs. If not, you can always use them for your good next time.
What else to do?
There are still tons of things to take care of. A happy guest also never hesitates to contribute by helping with decorations. So why don’t all families plan beautiful decorations? This way you can always spend more time with one another despite the hectic schedule.
But if you follow these basic steps you can find time to entertain your guests, and properly manage the events without the constant nagging in your head.
