Wedding Tips: Creating and Finalizing your Guest List

One of the hardest parts of wedding planning is creating and finalizing the guest list! We know it can be so hard, you wish you could invite everyone, but costs start to add up quickly the longer your guest list gets!

Start by writing down every person you’d want to be there. Before you start cutting down the list to fit your venue & budget here are a few things to consider:
– are we inviting kids? (It’s totally okay if you’re not!!)
– if we invite certain groups of people (ie. co-workers, extended family) will we invite them all?
– when was the last time you saw them?
– Have they met your significant other?
– Were you invited to their wedding?
– will everyone receive a plus-one, or where are you drawing the line?

Don’t feel obligated to invite anyone, even if you were invited to their wedding, especially if you haven’t talked to them in a few years or more!

Creating a guest list is something we can help you with if you’re having difficulty narrowing it down. Send me a DM today to book a consultation, I’d love to chat!
