Although the decorum of the wedding guest list is up for debate, you and your companion if decide how many guests to invite in the end. Although there are some classic best methods, you really choose what works best for your special occasion. Here are some pointers to keep in mind when deciding who should receive an invitation and who you might not want to attend.

It is always best to treat everyone in the household evenly. However, if a friend or acquaintance recently had a wedding and invited you there, it’s acceptable to decline if the relationship has deteriorated or you have n’t made it a priority to extend an invitation. Just make sure to let them know so they wo n’t feel hurt and wo n’t be able to discuss your nuptials with guests who were n’t included.

It might be necessary to remove some titles from your A-list if you’re working with a tight budget or confined space. To help control this, consider creating a B- list of those you’d love to have at your wedding but would n’t be devastated if they declined. If space is available, you can welcome them once your A-listers have previously accepted.

You’ll also want to consider whether or not to offer plus- ones and if you’ll allowed children. If you do decide to include these elements on your invitations, make sure to clearly indicate them as greeting merely on your save the deadlines and Rsvp accounts.
