How to short­en your­in­vite list? – remains one of the biggest puz­zles for new­ly­weds. Obvi­ous­ly, you want to keep the cost of the ban­quet to a min­i­mum, but you also don’t want to get into a fight with your moth­er-in-law after you’ve crossed her close friend off your final guest list. So, how exact­ly to reduce the num­ber of guests to a rea­son­able and afford­able num­ber? The good news is there are sev­er­al ways Chan­fash­ion and we advise you to use it to do every­thing quick­ly, with­out dra­ma. Read and apply!

Tra­di­tion­al­ly, awas an oppor­tu­ni­ty for two fam­i­lies to come togeth­er to cel­e­brate the union of a young cou­ple. The cel­e­bra­tion took place most often near the reg­istry office, and the guest list was com­piled by the bride’s par­ents (since they paid for every­thing). Guests at the­could be not only dis­tant rel­a­tives, but also neigh­bors of the par­ents at the pre­vi­ous address, the boss from work and that kind aunt from ZhEK.

Now times have changed. For many cou­ples, the­ex­pens­es are cov­ered by the par­ents of both par­ties, with major deci­sions being made per­son­al­ly by the bride and groom.

When it comes to com­pil­ing aguest list, there are two main con­straints that rarely allow every­one to be invit­ed: it is, of course, the capac­i­ty of the place where the ban­quet is planned, and the­bud­get. The third no less sig­nif­i­cant fac­tor influ­enc­ing the guest list is your per­son­al pref­er­ences with the groom in terms of style and atmos­phere, and it can even dom­i­nate the pre­vi­ous two!

Of course, I want to make a list so that every­thing is fair. The extend­ed fam­i­ly “side” may well invite only sib­lings and their cou­ples, while the oth­er side may well go to god­par­ents, uncles, and cousins ​​for a 50/50 split. Of course, if one bases the dis­tri­b­u­tion on “prox­im­i­ty”, “fair­ness” will be called into ques­tion. Keep in mind that par­ents may cling to the tra­di­tion that the guest list is more about their friends than you and your loved one.

1 Distant relatives

If you haven’t spo­ken to some of your rel­a­tives in years, feel free to not invite them to your wed­ding. Remem­ber, youris a cel­e­bra­tion for you and for your loved one, and for your fam­i­ly and close friends; but it’s not a fam­i­ly reunion day. Don’t think you have to invite the whole fam­i­ly tree.

2 Friends you haven’t heard from in years

If any of you hope to rekin­dle friend­ships with peo­ple you grew up with or no longer asso­ciate with, but real­ly want to, it will be tempt­ing to invite them to yourin order to restore friend­ly rela­tions under a weighty pre­text. So, don’t be so stu­pid! At the wed­ding, you will be busy with the pro­gram, with each oth­er and with your clos­est asso­ciates. Believe me, you sim­ply will not have the desire or time to estab­lish con­tact with a dis­tant per­son.

3 Friends from work

Just because you share a work­space with a per­son or you go on lunch break togeth­er does­n’t mean you have to put that per­son­’s name on your­guest list. It would be ide­al to com­plete­ly sep­a­rate work and fam­i­ly. Both you and your loved one can bring a bot­tle of wine and treats to work after the wed­ding, show pho­tos from the­and give col­leagues the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­grat­u­late them­selves on their new mar­i­tal sta­tus.

4 Returninvitation

Of course, if these are not very close friends of yours. You do not have to invite peo­ple to yourout of a sense of duty or for the sake of show, only sin­cere and sin­cere.

5 Neighbors

Yes, they live next to you, but is there that degree of close­ness between you that can be a rea­son to invite them to your­par­ty? Ais an inti­mate, fam­i­ly rit­u­al.

At the next meet­ing, by the way, tell them that you will have awith your fam­i­ly.

6 Friends with a track record
