When it comes time to say I do, you want to make sure that the day is perfect and all the important people in your life and your groom’s life are there to celebrate with you. However, if you have a strict budget for your wedding in a ballroom, then you might need to trim your original guest list a little bit. You need to be careful not to remove anyone you really want there or that will cause hurt feelings between you and your new in-laws. Here are some tips for trimming your guest list to a more manageable size.
Old Friends That You Haven’t Seen in Years
While you might want your old high school friends to see your groom, they might not make the best choice for invited guests if you’re on a tight budget. If you haven’t spent time together for years, it’s okay to leave them off the guest list. It might save a few minutes of awkward conversation.
Friends of Your Parents
In some cases, your parents or new in-laws may want their oldest and dearest friends invited to the wedding. If you or your new spouse doesn’t know these people well, you need to talk to your parents and take them off the guest list to save some money and room for people you know well.
Of course, a lot of people in your office know that you’re getting married soon and might share that info with some of your business contacts. Just because one of your clients or suppliers congratulates you on your upcoming wedding doesn’t mean that you need to invite them.
