It is no longer the responsibility of the bride’s family to pay for out-of-town’ guests travel and lodging. Times have changed, and they pay for their own.
Cut guests you have outgrown, invite out of intent, people who are in your life today and limit the ones who have drifted.
Cut “work” friends you don’t socialize with outside of the office; They will understand more than you know.
Ultimately, remember people make the wedding memorable, invite those who matter most and will be in your life going forward.
