6. Be Realistic About Numbers: While you may want to invite everyone you know, be realistic about your budget and venue capacity. Remember, every guest adds to your overall wedding costs, catering, beverages, and venue capacity.

7. Have a B-List: Prepare a secondary list of guests you would like to invite if space allows or if some initial invitees decline. This helps manage unexpected changes and ensures you can extend invitations as needed.
