How to Choose Your Wedding Guests
We all know that wedding guest list is a sensitive topic for most couples. It's also a very delicate situation for the friends and family members who are left out.
The best way to approach this dilemma is to make sure you invite people who will be in your life after the wedding.
You should not invite people just because they can't afford it or don't have time to come, or because they work overseas or live in another country. You should also avoid inviting people who will use it as an opportunity to take advantage of you.
For example, if someone has made it clear that they are only interested in free food, drinks and entertainment while they are there, then why would you want them there? If someone has made it clear that they will only attend if you pay for their travel expenses, why would you want them there? If someone has made it clear that they will only help with the planning and setup of your event if you pay for their services, why would you want them there?
*Your Ex-Boyfriend Or Girlfriend
It's probably better for both of you if neither of you go to each other's weddings. Your ex may try to start drama with their new significant other, and you will end up looking really bad in front of your new significant other's friends and family members. It's just not worth it! Besides, once you're married, there will be plenty of time for the two of you to catch up during holidays and vacations!
*Your Former Best Friend
If this person was such a good friend before the breakup, then why did they stop talking to you? And if they were so bitter about losing their best friend status when things ended between you two, then why would they want to come back into your life now? If possible, try to avoid having these types of relationships
There are a lot of decisions to make when it comes to planning your wedding day, but one that is often overlooked is who you choose to invite. While there will always be the temptation to invite everyone and their mother, there are some guests that should be left off the list.
*The coworker who doesn't like you
If there's someone at work who seems to have it out for you, don't invite them to your wedding! They might do something terrible like throw their drink in your face during dinner or make fun of your dress behind its back.
*The gossip queen
You know who I'm talking about: She can't help herself from sharing every little detail about every person in her life with anyone who will listen — even if it's not true! Don't invite.
