A wedding guest list template can help you keep track of everyone you plan on inviting to your wedding. Not only will it help keep you organized, it's also a place where you can make sure no invitation or thank you note gets forgotten.

These templates can be as simple or as detailed as you like. You'll need to enter basic information such as names and addresses, and from there you can enter everything from how many children are in the party to dietary restrictions and more.

All the templates are free and can be used with spreadsheet programs or word processors, making them useful even if you don't have Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word.

You can complement these templates with more wedding freebies and free wedding templates to help you create your own wedding invitations, favor boxes, save the date cards, programs, checklists, and websites.
