When it comes to planning the wedding guest list, there are three things to put into consideration before adding names into your list – your style, budget, and venue capacity. Create a draft guest list before looking for venues as capacity will determine the size of the wedding venue.
Start with your parents, grandparents, siblings with their partners, and their children. Then relatives and distant families. Try and keep it fair when it comes to guest numbers for each of your families. Followed by your friends and work colleagues and don’t forget their plus ones. Discuss early on in the process whether or not to invite children to your wedding, as this would add to the numbers in your guest list. Lastly, the bride and groom count as guests too, so don’t leave yourselves off the list when it comes to your final figure.
When your guest list is done and final, managing your guest list is one of the biggest logistical tasks of any wedding. When the average wedding size is 250 pax, sorting through wedding guest list can be a headache, BridalPod has a wedding guest list and RSVP management tool that will help you;
