You Might Want to Leave These People Out of Your Guest List

Creating a guest list for your wedding can be a daunting and stressful task – especially when budget is one of your primary concerns and you want to make sure you are surrounded by all those whom you love on your wedding day.

However, there are times when cutting the guest list is absolutely crucial – and when it comes down to that, you need to know who to leave out of the list.

What are some of the categories of people you might want to leave out of the invitations? We have some tips for you – continue reading to find out more.

  • People you just don’t like. It doesn’t matter who’s insisting on you inviting them to your wedding and it doesn’t even matter the nature of the external or internal pressure you’re feeling with regards to inviting them to your wedding. If you don’t like someone, you shouldn’t feel obliged to invite them at your wedding.
  • People who would cause any kind of scene (start a fight, bring drama into your wedding day, etc.). You need to be surrounded by positivity at your wedding – because, after all, this is your wedding day and the last thing you need is a scandal or people who will draw negative attention on them. This day will be quite stressful as it is – you don’t need extra-stress generated by guests who aren’t in a good mood.
  • People at work. You CAN and should invite co-workers to your wedding if you actually get along with them outside of the working hours too. However, you should not feel obliged to invite co-workers you’re not friends with.
  • People you used to date. No matter how amazingly well you get along with your exes, you shouldn’t invite them to your wedding. Yes, even your future spouse may be OK with it, but the truth is that there will be awkwardness and that inviting an ex to your wedding will inevitably make you feel odd in one way or another. It’s probably best to leave them out of the guest list.
