How to Whittle Your Guest List Down to Just the Very Important Guests

Wanna hear a secret? Micro weddings are going to be all the rage next year – and it’s not hard to understand why. Even though coronavirus will hopefully be more contained by 2021, there are still going to be many couples who will be wary about inviting hundreds of guests to their big day. By choosing a micro wedding, they can only invite those that really need to be there, and they can focus on people who have been dreaming of their wedding day alongside them. However, how do you whittle your guest list down to the VIPs?

Think About Your Future

When you are planning your big day, it can also double-up as the ultimate reunion for those you haven’t seen in years. We’re talking about your high school besties, your first boss, and those you grew up with. Will these people make the cut for a micro wedding, though? Whether you want 10, 20, or 50 guests overall, you need to really think about your future. If you haven’t seen someone for ten years, then there’s very little chance that they’re going to be a huge influence on your future. Only invite people who will be a part of your future, and you’ll find that reducing your guest list is much easier.

Make A Few Lists

If you’re struggling with who to invite, then why not make A and B lists? The A list includes your blood relatives and family, and your B list will include friends. The aim is to ensure that you are inviting the right people, so if you’re struggling to remember the name of your great aunt’s second cousin once removed, then you don’t need to invite them to your wedding. The most important names should come to you straight away, so they’ll be at the top of each list.

Whittling down a wedding guest list can seem brutal, but sometimes it’s the best decision.
