7 questions that will help you decide who to invite to your wedding day

7 questions that will help you decide who to invite to your wedding day


Written by Katie Byrne


Not sure who makes the guest-list cut for your wedding? Here's how to decide...

 

#1 When did I last see them?

If it was longer than three months ago, it's looking doubtful. If it was longer than six months - and there's not been an obvious reason for their absence from your life - scrub them off the list.

#2 What has their response to my wedding news been?

Have they messaged you to say congratulations, or sent you a card or email? If not - ask yourself the next question!

#3 Why do I want to invite them?

If it's a no-brainer that you want them to come to your wedding day, read no more! But if you're not entirely sure why, exactly, you want them to join you on the happiest day of your life, proceed to the next question.

#4 After the wedding, when am I next most likely to see this person?

If it's soon, give it some thought. But if not... *Reaches for red pen*

#5 Is it practical for this person to attend?

If they live a thousand miles away, or will struggle to book the day off work, ask yourself if it's worth putting them in the position of having to decide whether or not they want to attend. 

#6 How many of the other guests will this person know?

If the answer is a handful or less, you might want to spare them the awkwardness. However, if you can fit in a plus-one for them as well, reconsider!

#7 If I no longer worked with/lived near/etc this person, would I actively keep in touch with them?

If the answer's a firm 'no', then don't worry about it. If you're unsure, click here for some further pointers. And if the answer's a definite 'yes' - pop their invite in the post!
