Are you about to walk on the aisle with the man of your dreams? For sure you can’t contain your excitement and might even be planning for this big day too early. Actually, the earlier you plan for your wedding day, the better so that nothing will be missed. Sometimes, because of too much excitement, little things will be omitted and they can certainly ruin your day.
One of the things that you need to go through yourself is the guest checklist. You might be able to hire people in helping you prepare your wedding but this is the aspect you and your future partner should deal with.
This can be daunting though especially if the budget is not that relaxed. So these tips below are comprised to give you a hand:
- Before anything else, it is important that you and your partner already know who to invite separately. You have to consider each side or else, you might get into the bad side of your in-laws even before the D-day. The traditional way is that each of the parents will get half of the guests and the couple will get the other half.
- Automatically, the closest relatives should be invited unless you are ready for an awkward time every time there is a gathering. When it comes to the distant relatives, it will be up to you as long as you should group them like a bunch. If you have to invite a distant relative because you are close to him, then you should invite the entire family. If that is too much for you to handle, might as well if you don’t invite any of them.
- When it comes to the number of guests, you have to be realistic or your wedding will be a stressful one. Instead of the invited guests being grateful as you share your most important moments to them, you might only hear negative feedbacks like they are still hungry or the venue is too small and so on.
Aside from the guest list though, the venue will also play an important role and this should coincide with the number of guests you plan to invite. Surely you don’t want your guests to be uncomfortable by renting a small place and inviting a lot of people.
