When it’s time to start thinking about how to make a wedding guest list it can cause feelings of overwhelm and confusion. Am I right? The thought of doing this pretty much paralyzes you, so you do nothing. You have no clue where to start or who to invite to your wedding so you avoid it. But your wedding guest list isn’t going to create itself that’s what you have to start somewhere!
Wedding planning experts might disagree about this being your first step but figuring out a budget isn’t the only important part of planning your wedding. I’m no expert but as a past bride, I know that making a decision about who you’ll invite is just as crucial as the financial aspect. This first step might seem like a daunting task, but if you and your partner take the time to complete this to-do you’ll be better equipped to make the next few major decisions in the wedding planning process. Trust me, it’s an easy win compared to the other tasks you’ll need to tackle later on down the road.
One thing to remember while you are completing this task is that this is not set in stone and it can be changed or updated at any time before you begin choosing wedding vendors that rely on numbers. This is one of the first steps that I recommend simply because it’s an easy task to complete that doesn’t require any commitments right off the bat. It can also be fun, too, if you think about how special your wedding day will be surrounded by the people you love the most! That’s what really matters.
