Figuring Out Who’s Who on Your Guest List
Because so many other wedding-related decisions depend upon the number of guests, it is important to create your guest list early on.
First, sit down with your fiancé and discuss what general wedding size you envision. Do you prefer a cozy affair with only your nearest and dearest friends, or adore a huge party where every co-worker and distant relative is going to be included?
Then, write down a list of the people you definitely want to invite, and those you might include if you opt for a larger celebration. Don't forget to give each set of parents a certain number of guests to invite, but don't worry; you don't need to feel obligated to invite all your parents' friends, distant relatives, coworkers, and your friends' children to your wedding.
