Weddings can be prohibitively expensive and something that sets a couple back financially. One way to limit the cost of your wedding is by limiting the guests you invite. This can be challenging and can ruffle some feathers in your family.
To avoid the repercussions start your list small by identifying those you have to have at your wedding, typically your immediate family. Then consider your closest friends and those who you feel you must attend. If you still have the capacity for more guests consider expanding from here based on priority.
Create circles of guests and classify guests by type. If you overstep your capacity reduce down to the lower level.
By classifying guests based on priority to you, you may find it easier to design a reasonable guest list for your wedding day, even when your resources are tight.
