Building A Wedding Guestlist


For most people, the idea of a perfect wedding largely surrounds the people you’ll have there. You will want friends, family members, and other important people from your life by your side on this special day, and it will be important that they all attend. Of course, though, a large part of this rests on your shoulders. The invites you send are very important. So, to help you out, this post will be exploring some of the ways you will be building them, along with some advice along the way.

Who Will Come? The first part of this task will be deciding exactly who you want to come to your special day. In most cases, both your partner and you will have a good idea of who will need to come for your day to be complete, but there will be a limited seat count which you have to stick to. To make this easier, you should both list your guests in order of importance. From there, it should be easy to knock anyone off the list if you simply don’t have space, without missing out on the essentials. While doing this, collecting information like addresses can make the next steps a lot easier.

Making The Invites: Creating a quality wedding invite will take a lot of work. This document needs to include the important times and dates, along with information like the itinerary for the day and a menu if people will have options to choose from. DIY wedding invitations can often be built using packs which are found online. Using something like this limits your freedom, but will also make your life a lot easier, taking away the need for a designer to help you.

Getting Them Sent: Once you have the invitations made, you’ll be ready to start thinking about how they’ll be sent out. Your local postal service will often be the best option, giving you an affordable way to get the job done, but you’ll need to do some research to find their bulk sending options. Along with this, it’s a good idea to make sure that you send them nice and early. Otherwise, people might not be able to attend because of existing commitments which they’ve made.

Building Your List: Once you’ve sent all of the invites out, it’s just a matter of waiting until you start getting some replies. As these roll in, you will be able to build your guest list. Of course, though, you’ll have to make sure that everyone is included, or it might start to get confusing. There are loads of handy online tools out there which are designed to make this sort of job a lot easier. So, with just a little bit of research, you should be able to improve your invitation experience by a huge margin.

Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start working harder on the time you put into your wedding invites. It can be hard to organize an event like this. But, with the right effort, you should be able to tick this little job off of your list nice and early.
