    Host: How many people should I invite to my wedding?

    Christina Taylor: How many people you invite to wedding is difficult thing. Writing on the list actually you would think would be really easy when you first initially say you are getting married and you are very exited and you want to write some of the people that you are inviting to the wedding and then you start writing people down and you start thinking, "Oh, if invite this person I have to invite this person and this person and this family member, I have to invite this family member.

    " So it gets to be a difficult process. So you really want to get that out of the way in the beginning because it is something that you need to know moving forward. All your planning is surrounding how many people are going to be there? Your cost per person at the facility that you are having, that is going to depend on that, the space that you need for the actual ceremony is going to depend on the how many people are coming. It's something you want get out of the way in the beginning. What I would recommend is actually using a planning guide. There are lot of planners that you can buy at different stores for planning a wedding. They usually come with an area where you can create a guest list, they come with an area where you can create a budget. There are a lot of online tools that you can use to do that's a very initial first step that I highly recommend is doing the guest list and also really maximizing the budget and seeing how much you have to start with so that you can edging way so that you can do your planning. 1
