Before you even begin to put together your guest list, you need to think about the occasion for your party and who, if anyone, the party is for. The guest list can make or break a party, so it is important to choose your invitees carefully.

If you're throwing a party for a specific person, then you should try to find out who they would like to have invited. If the party will be a formal one such as a wedding reception, then you'll need to make sure that certain people are not left out; relatives for instance. Omitting a family member from your guest list can cause a lot of trouble and is a mistake which you'll want to avoid.

However, if your party will be a small and informal one like a dinner party, then you may want to choose to invite based on how these guests will get along. You should always keep the dynamics of the group in mind; you'll want to invite people who will enjoy each other's company and create a group which will have interesting dinner conversations.

You should also think about what kind of dinner you will serve based on the people you plan to invite; a barbecue may be more suitable for some groups of guests, a sit down dinner for others. A dinner party can be tricky to plan, so guests should be chosen with care.

If you are planning to host a party where the guests will be teenagers, you will need to think about how many people you plan to invite, the chances that some guests may bring alcoholic beverages or other items which don't belong and of course, how many adults will be on hand to supervise.

You'll need to be certain that only people who you have invited get into your party; the best plan is to have an adult or two at the door checking the guest list as people arrive and keeping uninvited guests out.

A surprise party presents its own set of challenges. You will have to ask friends and family of the guest of honor about who they might want to invite. You will also have to have someone designated to bring the guest of honor to the party after all of the other guests have arrived to ensure that the party is actually a surprise.

The guest list is one of the most important parts of planning any kind of party. A party should be fun for everyone involved and when you invite the right mix of people, your party will be assured of being just that kind of occasion.
