Before the more elaborate part of wedding planning begins, you need to come up with a list of people who’d be there to witness your big day. Although it might seem like an easy job to begin with; gradually it becomes a mammoth task that causes a great amount of confusion and doubts.
To help make this beginning a cakewalk for you, we have listed down four crucial things to keep in mind while creating a guest list.
1. KEEP YOUR BUDGET IN CHECK
Keeping in mind how much you are spending, the guest lists for different events of your wedding will vary. While you may choose to have an elaborate reception, your wedding day could include only closest of your friends and family members. The cocktail party, for instance, may just be restricted to your friend circle. The budget here plays a crucial role. Keep in mind how elaborate you want it to be and how much you are splurging on food and cocktail before you send out invites for any of the events.

2. CHOOSE THE RIGHT DESTINATION FOR YOUR WEDDING
If you have planned for a destination wedding, the guest list becomes of paramount importance. If you’re planning on tying the knot in Thailand or any other exotic location abroad, the guest list might dwindle. If it is a city that most of your relatives and friends aren’t residents of, the guest list will play a crucial role. Depending on what is comfortable and a pliable option for your guests, decide on a destination for the wedding.
3. INVITING BUSINESS ASSOCIATES AND SEPARATE GUEST LIST
There are business associates who have seen you hard at work in your office and then there are childhood friends who have seen you embarrass yourself relentlessly. You want to have a separate guest list for every occasion. The bachelor’s party will obviously include your closest of friends. Meanwhile, you can include people from work for your big day or the reception.
4. RIGHT ACCOMMODATION FOR EVERY EVENT
Not only will the distance of the venue matter but also the accommodation of the place, where the events would be held. You do not want your guests to suffocate in a closed crowded hall, or have a spacious lawn with a presence of a countable few. So before you start inviting your friends and families for any event, make sure the venues for the respective events will accommodate the number of people.
Make sure that the people who surround you at the wedding are all game for it and are familiar with your kind of party!
