Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler were married over the weekend in Nashville, Tenn. The Hills star and Chicago Bears quarterback quietly tied the knot at the Davidson Country Clerk’s office in Nashville on Friday and celebrated with a ceremony the following day on June 8. The ceremony took place atÂ Woodmont Christian Church, which was listed #1 onÂ Martha Stewart’s “Wedding Ceremony Locations in the South.” Despite the impressive location, however, it was an intimate affair. “It’s going to be about 150 people, so not huge,” Cavallari told UsMagazine.com back in May. “I was never the girl who dreamt about my wedding or any of that stuff, but the wedding how we’re planning is exactly what I wanted. I think it’s going to be perfect for what we’re doing.”
How do you decide who to invite to your wedding?
The guest list is, perhaps, the most stressful part of planning a wedding. Cupid is here to help:
1. Choose the wedding size: Before anything else, you and your partner need to decide how large you want your wedding to be. Once you’ve picked a guest count, then you can start prioritizing potential invitees.
2.Consider obligations: It may be tempting to exclude everyone you don’t like from the guest list, but consider your familial and relational obligations to the people in your life. In some respects, a wedding is for the friends and family as much as it is for the bride and groom.
3. Don’t do it for the gifts: Unless you’re planning a wedding for thousands, don’t invite that wealthy friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend. It’s shallow and transparently materialistic.
