Wedding Guest List Etiquette Questions


Wedding planning sometimes feels a bit like a minefield, right? The constant dodging to the right and left, avoiding offending someone or making some sort of grave social faux pas can leave you feeling frustrated and exhausted. We have compiled some of our most requested guest list etiquette questions here:

When should I send my save-the-dates?

Do I have to invite an estranged family member?

How can I cut my guest list?

Prioritizing your guest list

Can I invite guests to just the reception?

Who should receive a “plus one” and who can I invite solo?
