​Let’s start with the GUEST LIST!   

Guest in attendance at your wedding are often friends and family excited to share & celebrate the day with you. When considering your guest list, it is very easy for that list to get long and become full of people. Consider these tips when creating your guest list:

  • Set a guest amount you would like to stick with (you may have to start the actual guest list before you do this part or your venue or your budget may drive this amount)
  • Set guest list expectations to those contributing to the list.   How many people does everyone get to invite?   Etiquette typically allows the parents of the couple to contribute to this list.
  • Write down EVERYONE you want to invite.   If you are within your guest count & are happy then yay!  But you still want to do the next step as it helps with your RSVP’s
  • After you have your list review it and consider making cuts to it.   Set some rules for cutting guest from your list…. (Do you both know them?   Have you talked to them at all in the last year or two? Are you inviting them out of guilt? Children or no children? Plus ones if they don’t already have a significant other?) You don’t have to invite everyone you know.  Plus a lot of the ones you should cut probably won’t attend anyway so why stress about their RSVP and add to your wedding day costs?

Having a guest list that is full of people who know and love you and your partner are more likely going to be excited to celebrate your wedding. These people will most likely make it less difficult and tell you if they are coming.

How do you NORMALLY get RSVP’s?

Believe it or not, it actually starts before you send out an invitation….

  • Send Save the Dates out- This allows people to put it on their calendar, ask time off work, and start the commitment process to your event.
  • Send your invitation complete with the RSVP card with a return envelope WITH paid postage
  • Consider an online RSVP process (this can be in addition to your paper rsvp’s)
  • Set an RSVP by date!
  • Some couples have even set up a facebook event to provide quick and instant communication including RSVP’s with their guest (least recommended option)

All of these items will help your guest plan and commit to attend to your big day!

What to do when my guest have not RSVP’d?

Earlier I told you that this was the one area you were allowed to be ‘Zilla’ about….well don’t take that literally and go on yelling and screaming at your friends and family because they failed to RSVP. Here’s some things you can do to confirm their attendance:

  • Call or text them
  • reach our via social media
  • chat with them when you see them again

Remember, there could be alot of reasons you have not received an RSVP, so be polite even though you are most likely stressed over the final planning parts of your wedding.  Courtesy goes both ways!
