Build a Guest List:

Most likely, you have already started to get an idea of how many people you’d like to have at your party, but if you haven’t compiled an exact list of names yet, now is the time to start. Here are a few tips for managing your guest list throughout your planning process:

  • List Format: Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, or even handwritten lists are all effective ways to keep track of your

guest list. Use a format that you’re already comfortable with to make things easier as you go.

Consider Save-the-Dates:

To send or not to send a Save-the-Date? While not everyone chooses to include one, here are a couple of ways a Save-the-Date can help you (and your guests)!

  • Saves the Date – You’ve worked hard to find and reserve your event date in advance – sending a Save-the-Date ensures your guests can make their travel plans
