Deciding Who to Invite to your Wedding

Deciding who to invite to your wedding can be one of the most stressful parts of planning your big day. Due to constraints such as your budget and the size of the venue as it is not always easy to decide who is coming to your wedding.

It is not always practical to invite everybody you know to your wedding but at the same time you may worry about offending people by not inviting them.

The reality of the matter is there is always going to be a limited number of people that you can invite to your big day and they hould be your friends and family that are closest to you.

Remember that this is your day and you want to celebrate it with those people whom you care about the most and who you want be there to share this special occasion.

When you look back on your wedding in the years to come it is nice to think that the people who you wanted to be there were there for you.

Throughout your life people come and go but those who are special to you at the time of your wedding are the ones that you need to consider adding to your invitation list.

The best way to start is by writing a comprehensive list of everybody who you would consider inviting to your wedding. If your parents are helping you to pay for the wedding you should also check with them to see if there is anyone that they would like to invite.

Once this has been done you should think about the cost of having those people and start reducing the list accordingly until you have your final decision that you feel happiest with. Sometimes you may be able to have day guests and evening guests and invite the people that you know the best and feel the closest to during the day and the others at night.

Whatever you decide, the most important thing is that you and your fiancee are happy with the final outcome.
