Everything starts with the list, and it can become the starting point of your wedding plans. Here are a few pointers worthy to note when you make your wedding guest list.

Family first rule

It’s no question that immediate family members of both parties should be on top of your guest list. However, inviting distant relatives might need some evaluation. You should agree on some rules when it comes to extending invitations to other members of the family.

Take time to ask yourself these questions:
Have you met this person?
Have you spoken to this person?
Are you in good terms with this person?

Choose from your friends

Inviting all your friends may not be practical. Know your priority and only invite those who matter to you. Acquaintances may not necessarily be on your wedding guest list. It helps to somehow categorize your friends.

Try to categorize your friends in this order:
Close friends
Mutual friends
Friends at work

You can also answer this question:
Who among our friends can we not afford to miss our wedding?

Kids around

You can’t expect to have only adults at your wedding. Some friends or family members might be tagging along their kids. Consider this and when you start to confirm guests’ attendance, ask those with children if they’re planning to bring them to your event. If you see there are a lot of kids attending your wedding, you might want to consider providing them an area at your reception.

Be organized, go online

Make things easy as you create your wedding guest list. Engaged couples who are a bit techie would come up with a wedding website. They could prepare a form as their wedding guest list and updates it the moment they get every guest’s confirmation.
