One of the biggest stresses in wedding planning is making the wedding guest list. This is the day you have been dreaming of most of your life and it is natural to want to invite everyone to the party! We know creating and cutting people from your list is not as fun as cake tasting or choosing your wedding flowers, but we hope these tips will help!
#1: If neither one of you has spoken to, know, or ever heard their name, then cut them!
#2: Give yourself the “one-year test.” If neither of you have seen or spoken to them in a year it is ok to leave them off of the list.
#3: If the potential recipient has never met your significant other, then they shouldn’t be on your list. First introductions should not be done on your wedding day.
#4: Anyone who is on your list because you feel guilty if they were not invited, should be taken off. Just because you have been friends since the 2nd grade and see each other every so often, or were invited to their wedding 5 years ago, does not mean they need to be invited to yours. If you have lost touch, it is ok to cut them off of the list.
#5: If you have to do some major cutting, cut out the kids. This gives the parents some time to let loose and saves you money on drink and food cost.
