The Guest List

Monday, November 2, 2009

There is no right or wrong way to determine the number of guests to have at your wedding. Of course budget is always going to be a factor but beyond that, the guest list should be composed of your closest family and friends. For some people that includes hundreds of people and for other couples 20 guests is just about right. Only you will know, but no matter what really consider the importance of each guest. For your day to remain a true celebration rather than a grand performance where you are the blushing bride and he is the perfect groom, consider eliminating guests from your list where you are unable to be yourself. This may include coworkers, friends of parents and distant acquaintances. Truth be told, while you are agonizing about whether or not to include them on your list, they may actually prefer not to be invited as well. A wedding is a celebration where people should be able to let loose and enjoy those around them. Keep that in mind when finalizing the list.

Once you have finalized your list, take inventory. Consider age groups, likes, dislikes and other details about your guests. Do you have a large amount of vegans on your guest list? If so, think about what that means for your dinner menu. Are many of the guests above 50? If so, consider them when selecting some of the song choices for the evening. While you will hear me say over and over to make your decisions based on what you truly love, it's equally important that you take into consideration that you are hosting a party. For this reason, get to know your guest list and consider the guests when making major decisions in the wedding plans.
