A wedding day is a special day. You should consider other people though, but for the big part, it should be about your happiness. You will never have another day to walk down the aisle. So, it’s only fair to make this day the best day of your life. Part of making the day your best means inviting people you want to invite. Which means inviting only a certain number of people and leaving out some. Even though it’s hard to leave out some people but you cannot always make everyone happy.
For instance, you might want to invite 200 people but your budget can only cater for 100 people. So what do you do about it? As hard as it is, you will have to cancel out some people. And you might also have to invite some people you don’t like so much because they are family and you don’t want to be in trouble.
Anyway, if you are in a crisis regarding who to invite or leave out, below is a list of people who you don’t have to invite;
1. Your Ex
Sure, you are still friends. But does he or she really have to attend your wedding? It might still pain them to see you walk down the aisle with someone else. Spare them the pain and invite someone else instead.
2. All Your Colleagues
you don’t have to invite all your colleagues to your wedding. I know it’s awkward to invite some colleagues and leave out some. But as we have already said, this is your day and you get to choose who you want to come. Invite only the colleagues you interact closely and those you share your life with.
3. Your high school Mates Who You No Longer Talk
There are friends we slowly lose contact with. You have never fought but you hardly talk. They don’t even know what you do nowadays. If you have not been talking for years, there’s no need to invite them to your wedding.
4. Your Boss
This will depend on your relationship. Imagine inviting a boss who orders you around and shouts at you in the office? You had better given that invitation to someone else.
5. Your Neighbors
You shouldn’t even feel guilty for not inviting your neighbors. You don’t have to invite them just because they live next door. Invite them only if you are in good term.
6. All Your Relatives
If you are working with a small budget, invite close friends and families only. Some distant relatives don’t even know your name but they want to be in your wedding. I’m not sure you also want that.
