Considering the maximum amount of wedding guest list also requires looking out to the wedding guests who need a plus one.
Having a great wedding within your budget requires creating a guest list that works for you.
Your wedding guest list determines the type of refreshment and venue space that the guests can hold.
To cut the guest list, you have to determine who needs a plus one and who doesn’t.
1. The Married Ones
It’s best that when you invite a married person, you also invite the spouse.
You may be closer to the person than the spouse or may not have met him/her before, but it is always polite to respect their union and invite both parties.
Imagine that a wedding guest will attend your wedding ceremony without the spouse.
2. The Engaged/Those in a Serious Relationship
You should consider giving a plus one to the wedding guests who are engaged or in a long term relationship.
We have lots of couples who spend years living together before tey get married, or may not even get married at all.
Consider those guests by giving them a plus one.
3. Your Wedding Party
Your wedding party are those who work really hard to make sure that your wedding come out as a success. They’ve assisted in the planning process and spent a lot of time and energy for your wedding.
It’s nice to make an offer for a plus one because they truly deserve it.
The Wedding Guests Who Doesn’t Deserve a Plus One
It is suggested that you shouldn’t even invite your co workers except those you’re really close to.
If you’re trying to stay within your budget and have a considerable amount of guests, you should know that inviting all your co workers will be highly impossible.
You can invite your boss and those you are close to but remember to not hand their invites at work or it would cause a whole lot of conflict.
If you’re close to your boss, then you can invite him along with a plus one.
Single Guests Who Will Know Other Guests
If you have single guests that you’re not really close to, then you don’t have to give a plus one, especially if the guest is not married or in a serious relationship.
