Sit down with your future husband and decide how many people you can afford to invite to your wedding, then start making your guest list based off this initial number.
The guest list will determine your budget for catering, desserts, how many favors you will need, how many plates you will need, etc.…
Before you even begin to make your budget and a 400+ person guest list, figure out how many people you will be able to pay for.
Start with the obvious invites then from there add the other special people in your lives.
Start with family members.
Second, the bridal party.
Third, family friends.
If you still have more room and want to invite your acquaintances like coworkers and both your mom’s friends, save them until the end!
