When I first drew up a guest list my side alone had over 200 people and my then fiance’s about the same. We hadn’t even set a date but we had 400 people on the list. Between immediate family, extended family, friends from college, friends from work, amazing neighbors, family friends, parents friends, and childhood friends; the first draft guest list was a little overwhelming. Actually, make that a LOT overwhelming. Breaking through the chaos of a guest list takes patience, humility, and the 10 year test.
