Invitations, Guest Lists, Bridal Registry Tips on Planning Your Wedding
Who comes to the Wedding will definitely affect your Budget! Does your budget cover all the must invites? If so, move on to the should invites and then to the could invites. By using this system, you ensure that the people who are most important to you, your spouse-to-be, and your families make the cut.
Because there’s going to be costs for catering the Reception and the Rehearsal Dinner, be sure to note which guests are bringing children, and which ones are under 21 and will not be included in the “Bar Bills.”
When you pay a caterer by the head, every guest is a ka-ching on the total bill—not just for the food and drink, but also for tips and taxes, which rise accordingly. Here are some ways to keep the list under control:
- Don’t invite the whole office—either just ask your boss and your closest friends at work or no one at all.
- Don’t dig into your old address book for blasts from the past; stick to those people you see regularly.
- Reign in parents. They can invite their friends, but they don’t have to ask the garden club and the tennis buddies and the former neighbors. (Here are some more tips on Who to Invite and Where to start with the Guest List)
