I know it has nothing to do with entertainment, but it’s a question I get asked a lot, so I figured I would put it here for everybody to see! How do you handle your invitations? You have so many important people to invite, and you want to try to upset as few as possible. My first recomondation would be to break down your whole list into an “A”, “B” and a “C” list. Your “A” list should be only people you MUST invite, such as close family and the wedding party. Your “B” list should only be people that you really want there, like close friends. And your “C” list should be people you want to invite, but it wouldn’t make or break your wedding, or hurt their feelings if they weren’t there. Start sending the invitations ASAP; send the “A” list out first and put a RSVP date soon enough to have time to send the next 2 rounds. After that, it’s just a waiting game. Make sure if you do not get an RSVP back that you call your guests. I know myself being Greek, not everyone responds, and they may or may not be planning on coming. If your family is like this, you must call them, and reiterate the importance of the RSVP.
Then, once you have the answers from the “A” list, invite those on the “B” list, and then the “C” list. At this point, depending on your budget for guests, and the number of “A” and “B” list guests attending, you might have to pick and choose who you invite from the “C” list.
By inviting your guests in this fashion, not only do you please as many people as possible, but you also stick to your guest limit, keep yourself on budget, and get as many people who are important to you as possible to celebrate with you on your wedding day!
