(Closed) Creating the Guest List – how did you make a decision on the ‘maybes’

Well, we are having a small wedding (like ~50 guests) so for us the guest list was probably easier.  We don’t really have any maybes because everyone that we’ve invited are people that we are really close with.  I hope this works out for you!!  GL!

For me, if it was “maybe” it was no.  We’d just graduated from college when making our guest list, and most of our maybes were college friends.  I knew if I wasn’t sure about them then, I shouldn’t invite them.  We didn’t regret any of them.

our venue is limited

200 max! that being said, our absolutes are probably going to be just over that, so there will be no maybe’s. a whole different problem, but we’re starting with big cuts (no kids) and work our way to smaller cuts (relevance of their relationship to us).

I agree with Johnsbride09 – if they are a maybe, they’re a no.  IF you really wanted them there, they’d be on your list already, you know?

The thing I noticed, is in the last few weeks before we sent out our invites, is people kept getting added to our list.  So sure, 12-15 won’t be a big deal now, but what if you get another 10 guests on top of that?  It adds up.  We wanted 100 people, but eventually had 122 on our list up until about a month ago.  It’s now up to 137.
