When you think about making a list of who you want at your wedding, you may feel some intimidation. Creating a guest list is tough, especially if your intention is to host a smaller wedding. Unfortunately, once you have your list completed, you still need to think about your invitations, and having a way to track who is – or isn’t – expected. You also need to decide who receives a plus-one, and if you can comfortably accommodate people who bring their kids. Fortunately, you are not alone in your efforts, as Texas Old Town can help by offering invitation support when you purchase our all-inclusive wedding package.

Be Completely Clear About Who Your Invitations Are Really Inviting

Your proposed guest list will give you a clear idea of how many invitations you need, and where they need to go. When you send out your invitations, you need to avoid confusion by making the details clear. If you want someone to have a plus-one, list “and guest” on their envelope. Use a person’s first and last name – and make it clear they are the only one receiving an invitation, if you are not able to accommodate a plus-one. If you want to have an adults only wedding, you can mention this on your wedding website, and you should avoid using phrases like “the [blank] family,” as this suggests that everyone in the family is welcome.

Should I Rely On An Online RSVP Tool?

An online RSVP tool seems to offer convenience, as your list of guest responses is being tracked for you. Unfortunately, there can be unexpected problems if guests are confused by the online RSVP tool. Giving guests the option of reaching out offline can limit potential confusion.
