Wedding Wednesday: Who Makes the Guest List?

This has been a stressor for the last month: who to invite to our wedding?

I have heard all sorts of advice on the topic. Invite no one. Invite only people you’ve hugged in the last year. Invite everyone, and go broke paying for everyone’s dinner. You only get married once!

See, should have just eloped.

My stomach hurts. My head hurts. I thought wedding planning was supposed to be fun?

I want all of my close friends there, naturally. But I can’t have everything I want. I can’t have a hundred people at an intimate beach wedding.

What to do? And, can one elope after they’ve sent out invitations already?

After many circular discussions, E and I set guidelines to who to invite to our ceremony (aside from close family). We gave ourselves four easy rules to follow:

  • if you haven’t spoken to them in a year, no invite.
  • if you haven’t met the person’s significant other, no invite.
  • if the person has never been to our apartment, no invite.
  • if we have not sat down to a meal together in 6 months, no invite.

Any advice on what rules to put on our guest list? Leave a comment below or on our Facebook page, or e-mail us at!
