I was super stressed about our guest list for a long time too.  It made me really sad to have to cut people, so we had a plan to make a B list.  But now that we’re actually sending out invitations, we abandoned the B list because in the end, we stopped feeling bad about who we couldn’t invite.  So, from my perspective, it gets easier because you stop caring!  There are so many other things to worry about through the whole process that soon this will be like nothing.

My only advice is, whatever you do, do NOT invite more people than your space/budget will allow.  Most people get a 20% decline rate, but it’s not safe to count on it.  I’ve seen way too many Bees panicking right before their wedding because way more people accepted than they expected.

We desided on a destination wedding to avoid all this mess as I have a pretty big family. Our wedding is in our new home province instead of where we grew up so only the people who really wanted to come came. Im in the stage now however that most brides get where they wish they had just eloped and enjoyed being married instead of all the stresses of a big wedding. Have you decided what kind of wedding you want and are you flexiable for your budget?
