The girls emphasize that a guest list filled with people invested in your relationship and being at your wedding is integral to its success. "Your guests really make the event soar." It may be tough, but you've got to go over that guest list with a fine-tooth comb if you want your crowd to bring the right energy to the day.
Paige and Kelly explain: "Some people invite 400 of their parents' business colleagues, and it doesn't feel like a wedding, it feel likes a corporate hobnobbing event. The guest count is really important to make sure that there's a feeling of intimacy and love." They add, "We always tell our clients if you're not going to see this person five, 10, 20 years from now and if you don't want to see this person in your wedding album when you're 75 years old, don't invite them."
