Dear Wedding Maven, I need your advice regarding inviting co-workers! I know most people say that unless you socialize with them outside of work, you should not invite them, but I work for a small company and have become quite close to a couple of people. If I invite just a couple, then there are several that will get extremely upset (high school behavior in 40-plus year olds!). But I... (more)

Additionally, that's about as far as our budget will go. Our issue involves a few acquaintances who know about our upcoming wedding and fully expect to be invited. While once closer to us (we even met at their house), they are no... (more)

Dear Wedding Maven, My fiancé and I just recently got engaged and although we do not have a date set, I have already started thinking about the guest list so that I have one on hand if anything comes up.

Dear Wedding Maven, My ex-boyfriend and I met through our parents; they’ve been friends a long time. I recently received an invitation to his wedding, as did my parents. They’re going, but I can’t decide if I should. We were pretty serious at one point, and everyone, including us, thought we would get married one day. I’m the one who called it off. Should I go? Signed, The... (more)

Guesting games It’s never too early to start making out your guest list – thinking about people now keeps you from realizing you forgot to invite your little sister a week after the invitations go out. The first thing to do, of course, is to settle on a number with your groom. Take a hard look at your budget and work from there. Once you have your number, write down your... (more)
