Wedding Guest List Advice

Your wedding guest list will be one of the trickiest aspects of your wedding to plan, and you will undoubtedly have a lot of questions -- often right up until the wedding day. Fortunately, we have all the expert answers and advice you need to create your guest list -- and deal with any problems that may arise. The most common questions center on who should be invited, like, "Should I invite my boss?" and "Should I let single guests bring a date?" But we also get plenty of questions about wedding guest attire, such as, "How do I tell my guests that jackets are required?" or "What attire is appropriate for an afternoon wedding?" Another hot button wedding issue is whether or not to invite children to the wedding. Another question you might not have even thought of: "Should I invite my coworker's kids to the wedding?" Or that timeless wedding guest list question: "What do I do if my guests don't RSVP?" Our editor-in-chief Carley Roney has answers to all your toughest wedding guest list questions, and if you do not see your question answered here, let us know! Submit your wedding question, and you might see it answered on our site.
