A wedding guest list – where to start?
Before you begin creating your guest list you have to determine the budget for your wedding. Establishing a precise budget will allow you to calculate how many guests you can invite to the reception.
Another thing to take into account when creating the guest list is the capacity of the wedding hall (i.e. if the place you chose can accommodate all the guests you want to invite). Remember that the comfort of your guests is an important factor which may be decisive for the success of the whole wedding endeavour.

A wedding guest list in the app
One of the functions that can be found in our planner is a wedding guest list. It’s biggest advantage is the possibility to freely modify and make changes to the created list. A personalised guest list is a great solution, especially if you want to organise the wedding and reception by yourselves. The list can be created in one part or divided into more categories, such as friends, closest family, colleagues, groom’s family and so on.
What’s more, the functionalities included in the list allow you to describe each of the guests in detail. What are they? You can find out below.
The guest list included in the mobile app allows you to enter information on guests that require a special menu. Are there vegetarians or vegans among your friends? Or perhaps some of the guests are gluten or lactose intolerant? Make sure to mark it in your guest list by adding a note to each individual guest.
This option is especially useful for couples who want to invite a large number of guests from outside the town. The guest list allows you to mark the guests which will require accommodation.

On the guest list you can easily mark guests who you have sent the invitations to, as well as those who have already confirmed their attendance at the ceremony and reception. Of course, everything depends on the type of invitation you have sent and your decision on who should be invited to the reception and who shouldn’t be invited to celebrate with you after the ceremony.
If you plan to organise a reception with children, this function may prove to be very useful. On the guest list you can quickly mark the guests who may be eligible for a discount due to their young age.
Besides the above-mentioned functions, the guest list also allows you to add accompanying persons for your guests and mark the guests requiring transport.
