2. Keep the guest list under control! It can be tempting to invite everyone you've ever met to your wedding, and sometimes your family will try. It seems only natural to want to share your wedding day with everyone you care about. But if the guest list gets too large, it can add to your stress on the big day, and your budget goes up with every person invited. Keep in mind, you will probably want to greet and chat with every one of those guests. I am sure you'd like time to eat at your own wedding, and with a large guest list, that gets difficult.
