Wedding Expert Minute Tip 33 - A Drama Free Method for Shortening Your Guest List

  View Previous Wedding Expert Tip   View Next Wedding Expert Tip 


Hello, this is Susan with BestForBride.com with another wedding planning trip for you. Many Brides have their dream weddings planned out in their heads from the time they are little girls so coming up with wedding themes, colors and ideas is easy. Paying for it all, however, can be a bit trickier.

If you're having a bit or trouble keeping your wedding budget under control then consider taking a closer look at your guest list. Paying to wine and dine each guest is where the bulk of your spending will go. Crunch the numbers and see what it is costing you per guest and adjust your guest list accordingly. If it costs around $100 per guest and you are able to cut out just one table of 10 then you have saved $1,000 off your wedding day bottom line.

The math is the easy part; now, how do actually eliminate guests without causing hurt feelings? Must like they do in hospitals, you need to implement a triage method for your guest list.

Tier 1: Immediate Family, best friends and wedding party

Tier 2: Aunts and Uncles, Cousins and friends you couldn't imagine celebrating without

Tier 3: Your parent's friends, your co-workers, neighbors, etc.

When it's time to start narrowing down you list, start at the bottom of the list and work your way up. Another easy place to cut down the guest list is by eliminating the "plus one" policy for single guests. Don't worry; there will be plenty of people for them to mingle with at the reception!

Hello Olga,

Thank you so much for your professionalism and for my amazing dress!!

It came on time, it looked even more beautiful than the description and I had little girls pointing and waving at me on my walk to the ceremony.
I had never felt more like a princess than on my special day.

Cindy Brown Found Bridesmaid Dresses and Wedding Gown

So tell me about your experience at Barrie Best for Bride.
It was amazing. I came in just to look. My wedding is still 14 months away so I just kind of came in to get an idea and bridesmaid colors and designs and ended up finding my bridesmaid dresses as well as my wedding dress. The staff was amazing. They were really helpful at sizing. They were really helpful with the pricing and they were amazing with my bridesmaids. One of them was getting emotional and they were amazing helping there as well.
It is just highly recommended. I absolutely loved it.
Thank you so much.
You are very welcome.

Hi my name is Lise Renaud. I just have a little story to tell. I came here a couple weeks ago looking for a a wedding dress for my future daughter in law who lives up north in a remote area and she doesn't have access to any stores so I as a good future mother in law decided to come and I came and this when ... I came into this store this wonderful young lady named Taylor was here and she had the biggest smile She said: "May I help you" and I told her the predicament ... future daughter in law, pregnant, getting marrying in June, has a limited budget and she found the most beautiful dress because I had the picture of my future daughter in law was interested in and it was so close to this dress so Taylor went on to the computer and phoned out if it comes in white or beige she did, it did, she told me: "Yes we would have it on time". She said me how we should have her measured and I would come in the next day to order it and I did. And I just came today to say thank you to Taylor cause were so happy.
