Probably the most stressful part while choosing to get married is the guest list. From your friends and colleagues to your relatives and your parents’ friends, cutting-off or better organizing your wedding guest list is a confusing and complicated pre-wedding ‘project’.
The easy comes first: If you choose a destination wedding or elopement the guest list eliminates its’ size by definition. Probably many of your -not so close- friends or distant relatives will not attend your wedding far away from your hometown. Speaking of close friends and relatives, while organizing your guest list, imagine for which non-attenders you would might change your wedding date, meaning that if someone told you that for a certain reason he/she could not attend your wedding you would change the date. Those are already in the list! The second social circle of your everyday is your work colleagues. Certainly, you say hello to almost everyone in the office but are you sure you want to say hello on your big day? Think of cutting-off those who are not that close to you and include these who could be your friends outside of the office.

The hard part comes last: Parent’s friends and relatives. We are sure you already hear your parents whining for not inviting their old schoolmates and that distant aunt who you see only in other weddings and she always asks ‘if you are you or your sister, cause she does not remember’. Well, do not try to please others, even your parents, include only those relatives and friends with who you believe, you are going to have the wedding of your dreams. A dreamt wedding has elements like the ceremony the reception and the party, so guests should fit your dreams!
