Bridal Guest List Etiquette

Wedding guest record etiquette varies extensively, but a standard law is that “whoever pays gets a say”. That means that if your families or your potential in- laws are contributing to the ceremony, they have some degree of filibuster electricity over the last host rely. Many couples come up with a target number for the whole wedding and split it into thirds- one next for their friends and family, one second for each partner’s family to welcome whomever they want, and another second for guests to provide a plus- one.

Start with the definites/non- negotiables ( or A- listing, or your had- invite group ). These are individuals who you would be disappointed to not have at your marriage. For some people, this is their urgent home, or near companions, for individuals, it may be extended household like aunts, uncles and first relatives.

Second, consider if anyone who gave you a gift needs to be invited. While it’s great to been remembered by your friends and family, a thank- you note is frequently sufficient.


Therefore look at the rest of your list. Do you have room for everyone on your want list, or is it period to lean the B- checklist? This is the time to be honest with yourself, and if you ca n’t accommodate everyone on your list due to budget or venue space limitations, it’s best to save that spot for someone else.
