6 Best Kept Secrets to Handle the Guest List


Handling the wedding stress is difficult enough. There is no reason for the tasks associated with the guest list to add to that stress. Fortunately, we have NYC's very own La Bella Plannerswho have pulled together their years of experience to help you handle the guest list with these tips:

1. Write thank-you notes as gifts come in.

Your friends and family must be thanked for their gifts and support, so instead of writing hundreds post wedding, respond right away with a note after getting some of those gifts early.

2. Assess the plus-one scenario.

Do a faux seating chart in your mind, and imagine whom your single pal would sit with. If it’s a table of singles that she knows pretty well, then you’re all set. If it’s a table of couples (making her the odd one out) or if it’s a table of singles where she won’t know anyone, consider bending the rules. If asked why you’re not allowing single friends to bring guests, size constraints or your parents’ never-ending guest list are always good fallback white lies.
