That way, you will get just the right amount of people there. As a rule, about a third of people will reject your invitation. If you follow this advice, you will still have a full house.

#3 You can hire everything you need

Do you have loads of things that you need to buy? The simple answer to that question should be no. You can hire just about everything you will need for your big day.
