Who To & Who Not To Invite To Your Wedding

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

The struggle of having a gorgeous well thought-out wedding is balancing the budget so you can afford what you want and no go broke. When people look at trimming down their budget, usually, the first thing to go are the actual guests. It’s hard to keep a trimmed down list of everyone you want to be present on your special day. Most times, the guest list can start to get a little out of hand. Everyone seems to think they need an invite to your wedding…along with their friends, family, and significant others. Today I want to give you guys a little cheat sheet when it comes to the guest list. I’m here to help you figure out who to invite; and more importantly, who not to invite to your big day.

Friends

You’ve spoken a fair amount in the past year. Yes, they get an invite.

You haven’t spoken to them in the past year and don’t consider them to be a significant part of your life. No, don’t bother.

Parent’s Friends

Do you consider them to be family friends, or even your friends? If yes, they get an invite.

Have you talked to them more than twice for a lengthy amount of time? If so, don’t bother.

Extended Family

You’ve spoken a fair amount in the past year. Yes, they get an invite.

You haven’t spoken to them in the past year and don’t consider them to be a significant part of your life. No, don’t bother.

Guest’s Significant Others

Has your guest been with this person for over a year, already engaged to them, or married? If yes, they get an invite.

Has your guest been dating this person less than a year? If so, don’t bother.

Coworkers

Do you directly work with them and engage in conversation frequently? Yes, they get an invite.

Are they in another department and you don’t speak as often or freely with them? If so, don’t bother.
