The Corson Building Seattle Washington Wedding | Inna & Sam

How to cut down your wedding invite list.

You’re hoping to have a more intimate wedding. However, you’re having a hard time excluding people from your wedding guest list. Trust me! I know how this goes. My husband and I only had 70 guests at our wedding. So, when Inna & Sam asked me how I did it I was happy to share.

When you’re having a limited guest list it’s important to know feeling bad or sorry for the people not invited is normal. However, remember this day is about you two and you should have the wedding day of your dreams. There are so  many reasons for cutting down your wedding day guest list.

Top Five Reasons to have a small guest list:

  1. Cost per head can be $$$$
  2. You’d like a more intimate wedding
  3. Shy or nervous couple
  4. Want to be able to remember every single person on your wedding day
  5. Limited space at your dream wedding venue

Whatever the reason for having a smaller wedding guest list, I find explaining your reasoning to those not invited will be more understanding.

When my husband and I were cutting people off our guest list we told people we had limited venue space and could only invite immediate family and close friends. We were unable to invite additional people. Including plus ones.
