From the wedding entertainment to the food and drink, a lot of your wedding decisions are going to depend on how many people are coming and who. Here are some of the top tips for creating the best possible wedding guest list for your special day.

  • Set the budget first – Remember, the more guests you have at the wedding, the more expensive the wedding will be. You will need a larger venue, more food, an increased number of favors, and the like. Once you know what you can afford, you can determine the maximum number of people you can afford to invite.
  • Prioritize – If the list is significantly higher than what your budget allows, divide everyone into lists. Keep your closest loved ones on the A-list. Keep in mind that this doesn’t mean they will all be able to come. Just be sure to ask them first. Don’t move onto the B-list unless you have room left over or there are some from the A-list who have to back out.
  • Take your time – Don’t rush when making the list. This is a big deal, not just to you but to your guests. Choose carefully. Set your personal guidelines for prioritizing and stick to those.

Remember too that as waves of the pandemic come and go, this may impact travel plans for some of your guests.
