					   Wedding Guest Ideas – Making The List

Are your looking for wedding guest ideas? Creating a
wedding guest list is a difficult task. Most people can not
invite an infinite amount of people and therefore they need
to limit their guests. Who are you not inviting to your
wedding?


That is a good question. Technically it is your wedding and
you should be able to include, or exclude anyone you want,
right? Well yes, technically, but weddings are like big social
parties and you are the host. Many people want invitations
and many people in your lives fall under the category of
mandatory invitations. Usually immediate family members
are invited. If you invite the majority of one group, like aunts
and uncles, you really should invite them all.


Your wedding is your big day, and you really should be as
happy as possible on that day, do not forget that. However,
remember that you want to keep the peace leading up to
your wedding and after the occasion is over. This is why we
invite people we might not want to spend time with usually;
keeping the peace within a family is important especially
when you are starting a new life with the one you love.


But how do you decide who to invite? How do you narrow
down your choices? Here are some wedding ideas:


  Wedding Guest Ideas - Start by making a list

   Wedding Guest Ideas – Making The List
Write down a huge list of everyone you could possibly invite.
This way you will have a number of maximum guests. Do not
forget to include everyone your fiance could invite! The initial
list should include everyone you can think of that you may
want to invite or who might want to receive an invitation.
Don't worry if the list is way too long, you are going to cut
the list down to who you absolutely want to invite and who
you need to invite.


 Wedding Guest Ideas – Get Help With The List

You may need help creating these lists. Make sure to get help
from your fiance and both of the families. Your fiance will
have to answer the same questions and list everyone who
may be invited. He should also break them into groups. Your
families may have requests on people to invite, friends of the
family or business associates. Take everything into
consideration in order to know who to invite.


Now that you know everyone you could possibly invite break
your list into groups. Groups can be dividing into sections like
cousins, second cousins, aunt and uncles, friends of the
family, colleagues, etc. Now that you have all your lists
separated decide if there are any groups you want to exclude
completely. Do you want to exclude all second cousins or all
children from your wedding? Maybe you only want to invite
children over a certain age or children in the wedding party.
Once you look at all the possible guests in list form it is
easier to see who you want there and who doesn't really

warrant an invitation.


 Wedding Guest Ideas - The colleague question

Decide whether or not you are inviting colleagues. If so, how
many? Are you inviting many or all or just a few which you
are especially close to? This is something that you may want
to decide soon. When your engagement is announced people
may wonder whether or not they are invited. If you decide
against it you can certainly explain that you can only afford
so many guests and family has first priority.


    Wedding Guest Ideas – Other Questions To
                   Consider

If your potential guest list is still too large you will have to
think of other ways to cut it. Look at the people who are left
on the list. Are there people who you barely talk to? How
about people who you may have once been close to but now
you barely talk to them. Sure, maybe once you thought they
would see you getting married, but that was years ago.
These could be people you do not need wedding invitations.
