This one's kind of been creeping up on me! Although it does come from that fantastic well of suggestions for my usual Big Question, it's always sat at the back of my mind.
When planning a wedding, most of your big bookings like ceremony and reception sites will rely on your number of guests. Naturally, you're going to want to have all of your closest family and friends there . . . but so will the groom. So what happens when that number starts to climb from the intimate 50 you originally planned to the massive 250 it suddenly skyrockets to? I mean, there are so many people you want to share the day with, but on the other hand, you really don't want anyone to feel left out. Still, maybe staying within budget is really important to you--because imagine, if you have 250 guests already coming, you'll also have to tack on a plus one to that. And all of a sudden bam, your number is out of control and you can't book the site you've planning on because your list is so bloated.
So this week's big question:
Will you set a number and stick to it with little to no flexibility? Or will you create certain criteria that the chosen few will have to meet--for example, 'have I spoken to this person in the last year?', or, 'how long have I known this person? If it's within 3 years, then I'll include them.' Maybe instead of all that you'll literally flip a coin or roll a dice, because you honestly can't choose.
Whatever your method, we definitely want to know! C'mon, spill!
