Compiling a wedding guest list is a specific sort of torture in which you must do inventory of your friend group and feel at once like you have 900 friends and none at all.

When you’re a theater person like Mo and I, you end up accumulating 100 new friends (colleagues? friends?) every couple of months, but surely, our parents are not meant to feed each and every one of them. In trying to decide who to invite, I have perfected an algorithm, which I will share below. YOU ARE WELCOME, BRIDES.
