Hands-down hardest part.

Not going to lie that there are a few people I wish I had invited and a few other people I wish I had invited right away (instead of inviting as last minute b list people).

I have had a hard time with it as well. I thought I had it all figured out, but then I had to add just one more person, then it was just one more, then this other couple I knew had to be added. Then my mom wants some of her work friends to be invited. Then my FI’s grandmother wants her old neighbor to be invited…. It never ends.

And that is not the worst part- the worst part is that people keep getting added, but no one gets me their addresses! I am still missing about 15 addresses!! Or, one person tells me that “Sally’s” address is X and another person tells me it is Y and no one knows which one is right nor do they know “Sally’s” phone number so we can call her and ask!

We started out by putting EVERYONE on the list.  Then began assigning A, B, or C.  A was def invited, B was we wouldn’t be too sad if they weren’t there, and C was family or friends who probably wouldn’t come anyways so we wouldn’t bother inviting.  That made it pretty easy actually.  For us anyways.

Agreed, this is SO hard.  We’re in the final stages of ours too…. collecting addresses isn’t fun either.

GOOD LUCK!
