I received an e-mail from a male reader regarding the headcount at his wedding. His fiancé wants to invite everyone that they know. He wants to keep the head count down. Here is the skinny.
If you are not in regular contact with a person then you are not obligated to invite them to your wedding. With the expansion of social media you may feel that everyone on your friend list should get an invite..actually once they hear about your wedding, everyone on your friend list will want an invite. Not Gonna Happen.
Please remember that the amount of people you have impacts where you have your ceremony, wedding reception, how many tables you need (and all the decor on the tables), rentals, invitations, etc. This handy graphic has come in handy with a lot of my clients and it will hopefully help your wedding planning to be a little less stressful.
