Creating your guest list for your wedding can become quite the task. It takes time to think about all of the people that have been involved in your life. I struggled with this because I have had a lot of people in my life that have come and gone. It is up to you to make the decision regarding how many guests you want to invite to your big day!
Start out by creating a list of people that come to your mind. Once you have thought of everyone you can think of, go through the list again and start to analyze who the important people are that have been in your life that you know for sure need to be invited. This will give you a good idea of how big your wedding will be. If you are being very strict with your budget for your wedding, you will want to be sure to only invite the people that have played an important role in your life. If your list consists of a lot of acquaintances that you have known, then you can start making some cuts if you need to stick to your budget.
Be sure to communicate with your fiance. You want to make sure that you are being fair to who he wants to invite to your wedding as well. Make sure that you are both on the same page when it comes to who gets an invite. Some couples want to invite everyone they can think of! Some couples want a smaller wedding with less guests.
Choosing the right people to be a part of your big day is an important decision that you have to make! So be sure to take your time and really think it through!
