Good Morning Lovelies!
Happy Wedding Wednesday!!
Today I’m talking about the guest list! Who do you invite? Who do you eliminate? And how the heck do you decide!?
It can be so overwhelming to decide who to invite and who not to invite! Brian and I sat down to talk about who we were going to invite and our numbers were shockingly high! We found ourselves inviting people so as “not to hurt their feelings” and other people because “well we are inviting so and so and they’re friends with so and so, so they should get an invite too”.
When it comes down to it, weddings are expensive! Not only that, but they are (should be) intimate and special occasions. Yes, a wedding is a party, but it is also a very special and solemn occasion of a promise between two people that will last a lifetime. I think it’s so important to invite people that both you and your fiancé not only know (yes, that’s definitely an important deal) and like! I have found that this chart is super beneficial in helping Brian and I decide how to narrow down our guest list for our big day!
I’ve heard of some other elimination tools, like whether or not you’ve talked to the person in 6 months, or whether or not you and your spouse get along with them, but this tool is a little more out of the box and really helps to get to the nitty gritty of “should you be inviting them”. We will definitely be using this to help us decide who to send our save the dates to!
What do you guys think?! Do you have any elimination/inclusion tips!? I’d love to hear from you!
Thank you so much for reading,
