Free Wedding Guest List Template
Use this template to organize and track your guest list.
As you begin your journey of planning your wedding, one major task (a daunting one for many couples!) is to create a guest list.
It can be tough: finding a good balance.
A balance between your desire to invite everyone you know and love —
Vs not going crazy over budget.
For many couples, this is time-consuming and often challenging.
That's why I created this free wedding guest list template.
It will allow you to arrange your guest list and keep track of RSVPs — to help make this task a little bit simpler for you.
Why use a template for your guest list?
Quite simply, because you have a million things to think about and this will make your life easier.
Using template to create and manage your guest list will help you keep track of all the important details about your guests without you having to keep track of it mentally. (Or worse, not track it at all).
It’ll also make it easier to communicate with them as your special day approaches. You’ll be able to easily reference their name, contact info, status of their RSVP, etc.
Think of it as a central location for their contact information and RSVP status.
Looking to ensure you stay within your budget? A guest list tracker like this one will give you a clear and accurate record of all the guests you’ve invited, as well as who has RSVP'd, with which you can adjust your budget accordingly as you go through the planning process.
Staying organized and on top of all the various tasks and aspects of planning, is seriously underrated. It will help you have so much more peace of mind leading up to your wedding day!

If that’s you, great! Some next steps for you will likely be things like planning for dresses and suits, wedding colors, and even picking a venue if you haven’t done that yet.
