Before you put pen to paper, decide how you want to divvy up the guest list. It is important, and less stressful, if you know how many guests your budget will afford. If you are accepting financial assistance from others, be prepared to offer a few seats to them for their guest. Have a conversation with all those involved ensuring expectations are clear and there are no surprises. Making these decisions prior to spending anyone’s money leaves room to negotiate or decline the monetary offer. This way, no one is offended, and you can have the attendees of your liking to celebrate your day.
