Invite Everyone that’s Important to You
Having your closest family and friends at your wedding will make your day more enjoyable. We have talked to many brides who are thinking of cutting their guest lists to save some money. In our opinion it is better to spend less money per guest than to cut your guest list.
Try serving dinner buffet style or serving dessert only. Would you rather have more of your friends at the wedding or have a fancier meal? Most brides would prefer to have more guests.
We understand that some brides prefer to have a small wedding with only immediate family and closest friends. We are not trying to talk you out of a small and cozy wedding. Just don’t let money be the deciding factor as you choose your guests. Decide who you want to be at your wedding, and cut costs in other areas if necessary.
