How To Plan A Wedding

  • Remember that many of your guests will take a couple, and have two people. The more people you invite, the budget will be higher. Use our convenient tool: MY GUEST LIST OF MY PLANNER, which will help you to do this in a very easy and organized way. A good idea would be to list a: "People who have to attend" and another list B: "People who would like to include." By submitting your invitations with time, if the A-list guests cannot attend, you still have a chance to invite some of the B list, and they will not feel like they have been included at the last minute.
