Guest List

Ohhhh! How can I do this? I have my family, my hubs family, my grandmas family my other grandmas family and my grandpas family. My "friends" list won't be long. Don't have that many close friends, thank goodness. But it's hard to not forget anyone. How did you decide who to invite and where did you cut it off. How many guests did you have.

When I talk to vendors I've been telling them 200, but I'm afraid it might be more. I'm using TheKnot to put everything together, but I'm thinking of having something in writing to just flip through pages instead of clicking!

Then I have the invitations.... Ohh I'm sure etiquette has changed... How do you invite family members who are not in good standings with others, or those who are divorced, or those who are just not good in social events?

I got a headache already and it's only 7am! I think I'm going to stop for now. I started my list... I only have 26 so far!

Hi, I stumbled upon your blog from a giveaway post. I wish you the best of luck in making your guest list. I got married a year ago and the guest list was one of the biggest sources of stress! My advice is to set guidelines (have I talked to this person in the last 3 years? would I want to hang out with them? do only married couples or those living together get +1s? etc).

This can be so stressful I imagine! I just read Rachel's comment and I totally agree...have you talked to this person within the last few years? Do you and your man really want them there, or are you doing it to make someone else happy. Its your special day and you are the ones who deserve to be happy!!
