Trim Your Wedding Guest List With These Guilt-Free Guidelines

Trim Your Wedding Guest List With These Guilt-Free Guidelines

Putting together a guest list for a wedding is more stressful than it needs to be, especially when you've got plenty of other stuff to worry about — like the budget. Here are seven types of people you can keep off the guest list for your big day, guilt-free. Photo by Owen Allen.

It's natural to want to share your wedding day with everyone, but as your head count goes up, so does the cost. And it goes up a lot. If you need to start trimming your list down, Taryn Williford at Apartment Therapy suggests you reconsider these folks:

  • Anybody you haven't spoken to in a year
  • Co-workers you've never seen outside of work
  • People you're only considering inviting because they invited you to theirs
  • Anybody who would introduce drama or bring on bad vibes with their presence
  • Anyone just your parents want to invite (unless they're footing part of the bill)
  • Anyone you wouldn't normally buy dinner for
  • Anyone your partner hasn't met

Of course, you can choose to cut or not cut whoever you want, but at the very least this list gives you a starting point. It's your wedding so do what will make you happy, not what you think you need to do.

    Of course wadding party and ceremony is the best thing but guest list is more stressful to decide for invitation, because of budget. When we start to make a list for guest one question arise, how many people should be invited for wedding and how much budget in my hand for wedding ceremony.
