Wedding Guest List

What Is a Wedding Guest List?

A wedding guest list is a list of all the people who are invited to the wedding.

It can be broken up into two parts.  The A-list consists of all of the must-have invites that you couldn’t imagine not having at your wedding.

They will receive the first round of invitations.  The B-list is made up of guests you still really want to be there.

Key Points

  • Start by setting your total guest count. Divide this count up amongst yourselves, your parents, and your future-on laws.
  • Always add plus-ones.
  • If you have attended a friend’s wedding within the last 12 months, it is normally polite to invite them to yours if you are having an event of a similar size.
