How to Put Together Your Wedding Guest List
On today’s episode, I’m giving you my honest opinion on who you should and SHOULD NOT invite.As a warning, this episode might annoy or irritate some people, and you could strongly disagree. And that’s totally fine.But I want to make this a safe space where you know I’m going to be candid with you, and not just tell you what you want to hear, even if it’s an unpopular opinion. This is another short but super-packed episode, so let’s get to it. If you’re listening to the episode in the car while driving or working out or cleaning the kitchen, the episode show notes can be found at verveeventco.com/40. I want to remind you that your wedding is a very important day. I want to make sure you spend it with the people you care for and want to connect with. If you were on the fence about inviting someone, I hope this gives you clarity and takes away the guilt from enjoying your wedding, whatever size it is.Make some rules about who you invite and don’t invite and stick to them. Be consistent with who receives a plus-one, or which kids may attend. If you need help organizing your guest list, get a free copy of my Guest List Template at verveeventco.com/guestlist.
