It is such a daunting task to decide on whom you’ll invite to your wedding and who not. There is so much you need to consider during your wedding planning such as who will be joining you on your wedding day. Let’s have a look at some of these factors.
Amongst the many things that need to be considered, I will start with one of the very important factors that definitely need to be considered. This factor is the budget. The budget should be the part of your wedding that determines everything else. The budget is your guideline to planning for your wedding. Therefore, you will know how many guests you can afford depending on the amount of money you have available. When considering the amount of guests you will have you need to think about what that entails. Your wedding planner will advise you to consider the food that will be required, the drinks that will be consumed, the possible damages that may occur and the wedding favours that you will give to the guests.
Some of the other factors that need to be considered are the capacity of the venue you want and the relation you have toward the guests. The venue you choose to use will most likely have a maximum capacity and this must be considered when you are deciding how many guests you should invite. If you wish to have your wedding at a specific venue then you have to adhere to the amount of guests that the venue advises. You will not be allowed to have more guests than what the venue can accommodate.
The relationships you have with the guests you wish to invite also play a part in whether you should invite them or not. It is better to invite the people whom you are close with and who are important to you rather than inviting everyone you know. It could be awkward if you invite someone you’ve not seen for over ten years and have not really had a strong bond with. It’s best to sit down with your wedding planner and explain all your guest list concerns. It all depends on your personal preferences with regards to the people who you wish to share your wedding day with.
In the end the people who you invite to your wedding are the people who you will be sharing unforgettable memories with. So make sure that the guests who you have at your wedding are the ones who you really want to be there.
