When you have a huge area to work with, one way you can maximize the space and avoid bare sections or a design that’s not cohesive is by dividing the room into sections. You can have an open area with for cocktail tables so guests trickle in and mingle while waiting for the couple. You can also have a section for the photo booth and lounge chairs for guests to relax and have fun.
Fond memories you made as a couple make good starting points as inspiration for your engagement shoot–where you and your husband-to-be first met, a local restaurant where you had your first date, and so on! Today’s pair, Sofia and Paco, chose to go all the way back to reminisce their younger years and school, the place where their love first started to bloom. Their school photos are so full of fun and laughter, probably the effect of all their best moments at school coming back to them. Their second shoot location was a dreamy forest with Sofia donning a beautiful dress from S.we Wedding and Paco all suited up by The Ideal Man HK. Wrapped in foliage and golden sunlight, their photos at this place are undeniably captivating. Isabel Chiang‘s photos are a treat, so keep your eyes on them, all the way until the very end!

How to Finalize the Guest List
Step 1：List everyone out.
The first thing you should do is list out everyone you want to invite. Include both your guests and your husband-to-be’s guests. Next, categorize your list. For example, separate the list onto family, friends, schoolmates, colleagues, etc. This process helps in checking if you’ve missed out on anyone.
Step 2：Define the number of seats.
Once you have set the venue and budget, you will know the number of guests you can invite. You can compare your total number of seats available with your initial list. You know the number of tables and guests and have a better idea of the final head count.
Step 3：Sit down with your parents to discuss their guests.
Once you have and idea of the number of seats, make sure to meet with the parents from both sides to discuss who they want to invite. This is important so that you can reserve some tables for them right away. If your parents have a lengthy list, you can check with venue and see if it is capable to host more tables. Or, you can adjust the number of friends you plan to invite to accommodate your parents’ friends. We highly recommend giving way to parents, if they really insist on inviting a lot of their friends, because you can always invite your friends at another party.
