Tips for Planning Your Wedding Guest List

Tips and Advice


You will have an array of friends and family members that you will want to invite to your big day. However, depending on the wedding that you would like to host, you may want to limit the number of guests that you have attending, but overall ensure that no guests are missed!

Take a Look at Advice for Planning an Amazing Wedding Reception

From twenty guests to upwards of hundreds, planning your wedding guest list can pose as a daunting task for some, as you will want to ensure that you all who you wish to join you for your nuptials receives an invitation.

Are you preparing to plan your own wedding guest list? If so, you are in luck! As here at Ma Maison, as an Austin wedding venue, we have comprised some tips to assist you with doing so. If you are all set to discover some helpful advice, be sure to read on:

  • Step 1: The Master List

    First off, you will want to create a “master list” for your wedding guest list. So, sit down with your partner, and write down anyone and everyone’s names that you know. After you create your master list, you can then move onto the next step which will assist you with making any cuts as necessary.

  • Step 2: Your Overall Number

    Next, you will want to determine how many guests you would like to attend your wedding. Your master list should be comprised of friends, family members, co-workers, and acquaintances. However, you most likely won’t be inviting all of these people to your big day, depending on how intimate of a wedding you would like to host. So, once you know how many guests you would like to attend your nuptials, you can then move forward with planning your guest list further.

  • Step 3: Be Realistic

    You and your partner most likely know many people. However, the number of guests you have attending your wedding should complement your budget, as each guest will need a seat, a meal, and favors, among other details. So, it’s important that you can afford your guest list. In addition, there must be enough space within your chosen venue to host them all. Therefore, it’s important that you are realistic as you plan! Overall, don’t feel as though you must invite an acquaintance that you don’t speak to much, or distant relatives that you rarely communicate with. This is your big day, and you should only invite who you please!

Planning your wedding guest list doesn’t have to be a daunting task! In fact, if you utilize these tips, you can go about creating yours with ease.
