Etiquette for the Bridal Guest List

You’ll probably find it challenging to handle your list as the wedding planning process goes on. The guest listing can be an emotional labyrinth, whether you’re deciding who receives a in one request or how to interact with employees who are n’t invited.

Before you start inviting attendees, it’s a good idea to set up politeness rules for you and your fiancé to prevent any shyness. Everyone will be on the same page and you value your ultimate choice in this way.

Generally speaking, your fiance’s and your family and friends should be the first people on your record. Near friends that you regularly see and those who you consider to be a part of your inner group come after this. Then there are people you have n’t seen very often but who are important to you, like friends from school or college.

Be open about why you are n’t including the people on your list if you no longer have a close relationship with them or they are out of your price range or available space. To prevent them from feeling excluded or hurt, it’s also best to refrain from discussing your wedding plans with people you do n’t invite.

Some couples prefer to group their guests into tiers, with Tier 1 being the most important. This makes it simpler to reduce the list and prevents you from feeling bad about removing anyone who does n’t meet your requirements.
