How to make a guest list for a wedding need not be difficult!

We have 5 essential steps for how to make a guest list for a wedding:

1. Have the important conversations with your fiance.

Sometimes the guest list is a sensitive subject but it’s imperative to have the conversations early on before you get too far in the planning process. You need to know how many people you are expecting to invite so that you can seek out the venues that will meet your needs.

2. Consider your budget.

Do you have enough money in your budget to invite the amount of people on your guest list? Knowing this will help you to determine which venue to select. Depending upon the money you have to spend and how many guests you are inviting, you may need to select your venue based on their pricing to meet your needs.

3. Consider the children.

You will need to decide if you will be including children in your guest list. Perhaps you decide to only include the children in your bridal party, the children in your immediate family or make special exceptions for specific children. This is a topic to cover at the start of your planning so that you can address the topic with your family and friends.

4. Gather your mailing addresses.

Once you have an established list of names for your guest list, you will want to gather all of the mailing addresses. You will need the mailing addresses for your invitations, thank you cards and any other mailings associated with your wedding.
