unorganised. Every couple may find themselves in a dilemma when it comes to
organisation; this is caused by the bucket load of questions that come with
planning a wedding. However... this page focuses solely on one question, who to
invite to your wedding and who not to invite?
This tends to be a more common crisis with modern day marriages as both
parties are inclined to invite their shopping list of guests (which only results
in too many turning up and squabbling over chairs.)
Choosing Your Guests
To avoid this, begin by categorizing your
guests and making two lists. One list consisting of family and friends that are
complete 100% invites and the other should consist of those remaining. When
completed, take a head count of all those must-invites and compare it with your
set guest limit, if there is space, grace a few of those remaining guests with
official invites, however if you find the list is still overloaded its evident
that more people will have to be cut from the wedding.
So far you are probably concerning yourself with how impossible it might seem
to cut loved ones out of your special day... but these cuts can be made in a
more effective manner. Firstly consider making your wedding adults only, this
will immediately remove a large chunk of those overflowing guests and it is YOUR
rule so it cannot be put into debate, also inviting business colleagues and co
workers is not an obligation and you should not feel liable to do so. You should
inform your parents not to encourage any of their associates to attend as it is
YOUR wedding and you are distributing the invites, not them.
Cutbacks to be made...
You may notice by this point that you've
made a painful number of cutbacks but still remaining is an overloaded guest
list which more loved ones will have to be crossed off. So finally, do not feel
pressured into inviting old school/college friends or friends which you know for
certain you'll never see again as well as long distant family members who you
are not familiar with, this serves no purpose as the extra seats for your wedding could be reserved for those you
socialise with on a regular basis.
When labelling your cutbacks you may feel your conscience coming into play
but always remember a wedding is an expensive event that requires a lot of
funding and considering none of your guests will be contributing towards any of
the many costs involved you might soon find cutting back on guests simpler than
anticipated. This method enables you to invite only those you desire to attend,
thus allowing for a more enjoyable wedding with those closest to
