Committing To A Final Guest Count For Your Wedding

It can be difficult to guess exactly how many people will actually show up at your wedding. After all, not everyone will be able to attend, and you may have unannounced cancellations and unexpected plus-ones on the day itself. With that said, it is important that you set a final count for the number of people you intend to invite. Having your guest count set will enable you to set your wedding budget, and to determine how much space you might require for your wedding venue. Because Texas Old Town provides multiple venue options, we can help you select a space that feels appropriate for your wedding size.

Your Ideal Guest Count Is Determined By More Than Just Your Budget

How can you be sure that your guest count is right for your wedding? If you want to keep your budget under control, it can be important to limit how many people you invite to join you for your special day. Of course, this is not the only factor worth considering if you want to determine how many people you want to welcome. If your goal is to host an intimate affair, a large guest count can feel wrong for your celebration. However, if you want your event to be a lively celebration, having more people in attendance can help maintain high spirits during your reception.

You May Need To Make Space On Your List For People Your Parents Want To Invite

Parents of the bride and groom sometimes have their lists of people to include on your guest list. If you are receiving support from either group, they can reasonably expect some input on who is welcomed to your event. With that in mind, you should check in with both sets of parents to see how many people they might want to include. Having their lists on hand can help you adjust your final count, or help you find out if you need to amend your current lists to make room for different names.
