Who Receives an Invitation to Your Wedding

This is your special day; it's a moment of joy and happiness. Who would not want to share in this with you? Your wedding invitation will be much coveted; this is why you will want to create your list of invitees with great care.

In this moment of many emotions, the last thing you will want is to leave anyone out that would have believed themselves worthy of an invitation. Hurt feelings can easily result from this. There are a number of things that will likely influence your decision on the number of people that will ultimately be invited. For those people that you cannot invite due to financial or other reasons, a good idea would be to include them an at home celebration perhaps after you and your fiancé(e) return from the honeymoon. (For more help, see our article on: downsizing the guest list)
 

A useful way to assist you with your guest list is to organize it into a list of two categories, one for “Must be Included” and another for “would like to include” by names and location. Your first list of “Must be included” may include the following:

  • Immediate family members of both you and your spouse
     
  • Your clergyman/woman
     
  • Godparents of both you and your fiancé(e) (providing you are both close to them)
     
  • Your attendants
     
  • Your attendants special escorts
     
  • Best friend/s of both you and your fiancé(e)
     

Your other list could then be reserved to include other “Would like to include” individuals. This list would be where alternatives would be made to perhaps compensate for budget requirements and other circumstances and or situations. The list may include:

  • Relatives that are distant to you and your spouse
     
  • Friends that are close to your parents 
     
  • Someone considered special to you or your spouse, (maybe a teacher, close mentor etc.)
     
  • Extracurricular activity partner (sports pal, team member etc.)
     
  • Your close co-worker and or bosses.
     
  • Other people that hold particular significance in your lives
     

As this will be a moment shared and considered equally special to both of you, an even amount of invited guests should be balanced between you both. There may be playing room to work with as perhaps one of you may not have as many “Must include” or Would like to include” available for the list. Your list again should be considered carefully and should start first by including only those people that are the closest to you both.
 

Though money is a factor that plays an enormous part in the final decisions for most couples getting wed, in this case it may be more important to think about what this moment means to you and how much it would mean to that person that wishes only to share in it with you. Sending an invitation for someone to allow them the special opportunity share in this very special moment for you and your spouse should be given as a sign of affection, respect and sincere desire to have them included.
