As we start the new year, a few of my engaged girlfriends have already started confiding in me about the many annoyances of wedding planning. “Are charger plates absolutely necessary?” “Do guests need to go home with a wedding favor that they’ll forget about?” “How in the world do you continue to narrow down a wedding invite list?” Clearly, this is the tougher question to answer out of the three. There’s never an easy way to tell someone (or not tell them by not sending an invite) that has had an impact in your life that they won’t be able to celebrate your special day with you. There’s plenty of advice online that can help you with this process from this answer on Quora to Mandi’s Wedding Wednesdays post. I recently came across this fun little survey on Style Me Pretty that I thought might be useful too. Not everything can be solved with just a checklist; these are important people in your life that we’re talking about here! However, I like to think that any little bit of advice helps. Happy trimming!
