Question:  How do I determine who to invite and not to invite to my wedding?

Deciding on who to send wedding invitations to can be difficult.

Sorting out your wedding list can be a stressful time for many people, as it becomes difficult to decide who should and who shouldn't be invited to your wedding.

These decisions are often determined by your budget.  Sometimes because of your budget it is just not practical to invite everybody you would like to come to your wedding.  Obviously, this causes concern over whether you will be offending someone by not inviting them.

The reality is there are only a limited number of people that you will be able to invite and these people should be your friends and family that are the closest to you.  These are the people who associate with you throughout the year, rather than those you feel obliged to invite.

You have to realize that this is your special day. You should celebrate it with those people whom you care about the most and those who you believe should be there to share this special occasion.

When you look back on your wedding in the years to come, it is nice to think that the people who you wanted to be there were there for you.

Throughout your life people come and go, but those who are special to you at the time of your wedding are the ones that you need to consider adding to your invitation list.

Once you have a full list of potential guest you will want to place them into two different lists. 

The first list will be those people who you MUST invite. 

The second list will be those you would like to invite if you have it in your budget.  With this list you will put an A, B, or C next to each potential guest.  A’s means I really want this person at my wedding.  B’s means it would be nice to have them but….  C’s mean I really do not need to invite them at all.

At this point, if your budget allows you can start taking people from your second list that were A’s and move them to the MUST invite list.  You can then add your potential guest from B list and then C list until you have your final decision that you feel happy with.

If you and your future husband are happy with the final outcome then that is all that really matters.

Good Luck With Your Invitation List,

Choosing a Wedding Gown

One of the first things that I think about when a wedding is being planned is the bride’s wedding gown.  But there are so many wedding gowns available. How do you choose the one that is right for you?

Well, there are a few things to think about when you are looking at wedding gowns. These will help you to pick out the wedding gown that is right for you.

Time of year -

The first thing to take into consideration is what time of year you will be getting married. This will help you to decide on what type of cloth, the length of your sleeves, and the length of your gown.

Your body type -

There are a couple of types of gowns that will work for all body types but you want to be sure that your gown makes you look the best that you can. A person at the bridal shop can help.  However, you will want a professional wedding planner and/or image consultant who knows body types to assist you in select the perfect dress that compliments you.

Your own style -

Think about what kinds of dresses you like, and that will also help you to find a good wedding dress. No matter if they are plain or fancy, every gown is beautiful.  Selecting the style of wedding dress will depend on your clothing personality. 

It’s always a great idea to take your mother or another female relative or friend to help you choose your gown, and it is a great bonding experience.  Remember you will want to bring a wedding planner and/or image consultant so your wedding dress supports your body type and style.

Happy Wedding Gown Shopping,
