How To Create Your Wedding Guest List
Your next task would be choosing the guest. How do you decide who to
invite? How do you narrow down your guest list? Your budget ultimately
determines who you will or will not invite. Still it is good to gather
your list together first.
The first to add to your wedding guest list

the wedding you'll likely want them to attend.
Once your guest list is complete now it's time to consider who you
can afford to invite. If there is a need to cut folks out start from the
