Polka Dot Hot Spot – The A List, The B List

Ah the old guest list issue.

For this month’s hot spot I wanted to touch on it to see how you are dealing with it.

Did you invite everyone you wanted to? Did you cut people from your list early on? Did you do the dreaded A list and B list invitation scenario?

How did you cope with parent’s friends, long lost relatives, friends you haven’t seen for years? What did you do to make your numbers work for you?

    We aimed to have about 80 people at the wedding, the final guest list ended up at 105 (including 18 kids) so we should get pretty close to the magic number (invitations go out next week!).

    We were fortunate that our parents had a ‘your wedding, your guest list’ policy which meant that majority of friends of parents were cut straight away. I have a huge extended family which accounts for about 60% of the guest list, luckily my fiance has a small family!

    I moved interstate about a year ago so cut friends based on who hasn’t kept in touch or who hasn’t made the effort to visit.

    We’re not having an A and B list. We wanted to just invite one lot of people and if they can’t come, more money saved!

    Having the ceremony in a small church meant that we had to keep the numbers down so we had to be a bit brutal but all the important people are invited as far as we’re concerned.
