The Guest List
It’s easy to know who will be sitting at your top table with you, and perhaps filling up a couple of the other tables is a breeze too. However, sometimes, handling the rest of the guest list can be more challenging. The best thing you can do is to start with your budget and a set number of guests that you’ll be able to invite.
Discuss with your other half the importance of not going over the limit or number of people you want on your big day. Start with your closest family and friends; they will begin to fill out the numbers. If you have room left over, you might have to dedicate those spaces to people’s partners, or those friends that you can’t imagine not being there. Be strict; people will understand that you have a budget, and if they don’t, you’ve made a great call in not inviting them in the first place.
Once you’ve decided who’s coming, you can move forward with researching into venues and choosing somewhere that has a suitable capacity and amenities for your guests. Take into consideration the location and if your guests will be able to access it with ease. A place that fits a couple’s character and personality will also be the perfect backdrop for your wedding and all those treasured photos you’ll have. The style and era of your venue will also influence the look of your wedding, and most come with catering options, so it’s a decision that needs sorting out early on in the planning process.
You want your wedding dress to help make you the star of the show; choosing one early on in the planning process will help you make further decisions regarding the style and colors of your decorations, themes, and bridesmaids dresses. Therefore, start enjoying the process of try on dresses as soon as possible; ensure you’ll be able to dance, eat, and enjoy your big day in beautiful style and comfort.
