Creating your dream wedding for all to remember...
Question of the Week
How do I determine who to invite and not to invite to my wedding?
Deciding on who to send wedding invitations to can be difficult.
Sorting out your wedding list can be a stressful time for many people, as it becomes difficult to decide who should and who shouldn't be invited to your wedding.
These decisions are often determined by your budget. Sometimes because of your budget it is just not practical to invite everybody you would like to come to your wedding. Obviously, this causes concern over whether you will be offending someone by not inviting them.
The reality is there are only a limited number of people that you will be able to invite and these people should be your friends and family that are the closest to you. These are the people who associate with you throughout the year, rather than those you feel obliged to invite.
You have to realize that this is your special day. You should celebrate it with those people whom you care about the most and those who you believe should be there to share this special occasion.
When you look back on your wedding in the years to come, it is nice to think that the people who you wanted to be there were there for you.
Throughout your life people come and go, but those who are special to you at the time of your wedding are the ones that you need to consider adding to your invitation list.
Once you have a full list of potential guest you will want to place them into two different lists.
The first list will be those people who you MUST invite.
The second list will be those you would like to invite if you have it in your budget. With this list you will put an A, B, or C next to each potential guest. A’s means I really want this person at my wedding. B’s means it would be nice to have them but…. C’s mean I really do not need to invite them at all.
At this point, if your budget allows you can start taking people from your second list that were A’s and move them to the MUST invite list. You can then add your potential guest from B list and then C list until you have your final decision that you feel happy with.
If you and your future husband are happy with the final outcome then that is all that really matters.
Good Luck With Your Invitation List,
