Dorothy's Wedding Wednesday: The Guest List Problem

I need some advice on this!

February 21, 2018-

143 days to go til the wedding! I’m finding the hardest thing about planning this wedding is getting our guest list in order. The Yacht Club has a max of 270 people, and while that may seem like a lot of people, that’s small by Vietnamese standards.

Steven and I made our first draft for our guest list and so far we have 210 people. That’s not including all of my aunts, uncles, cousins, and my parents’ friends! You know we roll deep LOL. My parents have a ton of friends too, so I’m definitely going to have to reel in their list. At my sister’s wedding, not all of my parents friends RSVP'd and she ended up having 40 extra people show up!

Anyways, if you couldn’t tell I need help narrowing down my guest list. I have some questions: Is ok to not give my single friends a +1? What about the ones that aren't in a serious relationship, can I not give them a +1 as well? Is it rude to say “no kids” allowed to the wedding? What about co-workers- how do you choose which ones to invite without hurting the others' feelings? 

If you've got some adivce, please email me at
