"It came put exactly how I wanted it! Wonderful!"
"The pattern turned out exactly as show and the foil was a nice touch that made our invitations look fancier."
"We're getting married at a train station and these are perfect! They're not your typical wedding invitation and they definitely make an impression."
Deciding who to invite to your wedding ceremony can be more than just a hassle – it can be downright painful. No one likes taking the chance of hurting someone’s feelings by sending them a reception-only invitation, but unless you have the space and the desire to invite everyone you know to your ceremony, paring down your list is a necessity. Here are a few easy tips for simplifying your wedding guest list and ensuring that your reserved ceremony space is not overcrowded.
Before you come up with your entire wedding guest list single-handedly, remember you have a partner in the matter. Your fiancé should be allotted half of the guest list for fairness purposes. Once you determine how many total guests will be coming to your reception, split the number equally between the two of you.
Haven’t talked to a friend in over a year? That is a good indication that your friendship with them is not strong enough to warrant an invitation to your wedding ceremony. Make sure you send them an invite to your reception, but think twice before sending one of your beautiful scalloped or bracket wedding invitations to anyone you speak with less frequently than every 12 months.
One easy way to pare down your wedding guest list is to set an age limit and spell it out on the invitation. Don’t want anyone younger than 18 to come to your ceremony? It is perfectly acceptable to let family members know that children are not invited. If you plan to make drinks available after your ceremony, you can establish an age limit of 21 (although it is more common for drinks to be reserved for the reception). It is up to you and your fiancé to set age limits as desired if you want to ensure that only adults are present at your ceremony.
Anyone who receives bachelor or bachelorette party invitations from you should receive an invitation to your wedding ceremony as well. After you've celebrated your big day be sure to thank your guests for attending with a wedding thank you card.
