Quick Tip of the Day

We've gotten such great feedback from our readers about the expert planning tips we write about, so we've decided that today will mark our first day of quick tips! We'd love to hear what you think! Let us know if you have planning questions you'd like us to answer!

-Tip of the Day:  If you're trying to trim your guest list (whether it's because of your budget or limited space), think about whether you'd invite that long lost high school friend over for dinner in your home. Furthermore, would you take them (and a date) out to a dinner that would cost anywhere from $200-$1,000 (or more) per head? If not, you might want to think twice about inviting them.

When all is said and done, each guest you invite adds cost, and not just the cost of their entree and drinks. Each chair, specialty napkin, and favor add up. It's not just about cost either. Think about how intimate you want your wedding to be. Every additional guest beyond your family + friends (think: bosses and neighbors) means more guests you will need to tend to and greet. It's more people to entertain. When it comes down to it, you want to truly enjoy your wedding with those you love + cherish. Happy Planning! Aleah + Nick
