guests – one of the greatest challenges when organising a wedding is the guest list. Start with your budget , work out how many guest you can afford to invite, take into account the size of the venue, how much price per head (catering) etc. Make an initial list of people you would love to invite, like to invite, must invite. And edit the list down to a number you are both happy with (brutal but a necessity). Don’t feel the need to invite everyone you’ve ever met, remember it’s your family and friends who know and love you, who will make this day truly spectacular.
