Your Wedding Guests

Entourage List

Okay, we know there's a tremendous amount of pressure to craft an entourage list because you have to put all your four bestfriends in the list. Not to mention your little cousins and your godsiblings and your lunch buddy at the office. And don't get me started on the Principal Sponsors. You have 19 Titos and Titas both sides -- and they've ALL been an integral part of your life growing up. Then there's all your Ninongs and Ninangs who gave you 5 twenty-peso bills every Christmas. And, of course, your mom just had to add in her most prominent amigas, right? But, you can only include so much, sweetie. Unless you want your wedding processional to take 2 hours then that's fine. Here's a list of the wedding party you need to think about.

  1. Principal Sponsors
  2. Best Man
  3. Maid of Honor
  4. Bridesmaids
  5. Groomsmen
  6. Flower Girls
  7. Ring Bearer
  8. Cord, Veil and Candle
  9. Bible Bearer

Guest List

Now, crafting your guest list is a slightly different story but they're on and the same. You decide you big or intimate your wedding is depending on your budget. Of course, more guests, more moolah. Unless, you want to fit 500pax in a small wedding hall and serve them coffe and pan de dal then that should be alright.

  1. Family
  2. Friends (who are actually important to your life)
  3. Colleagues (past and present)
  4. Your college barkada)/li>
  5. Your higschool barkada
  6. Your gradeschool barkada
  7. Your pre-school barkada (debatable)

Of course, it's your decision at the end of the day. Just make sure to stick to your decision once you've finalized your venue and budget. I'm running out of words but I need to keep this going so here's a quote by C.S. Lewis disguised as a paragraph: “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”

Hi, TWP. I was wondering if you can post something about bridal registry? What's the best option out there? Thanks!
