Make sure to account for all guests (i.e. Main Guests and their +1s) with a 'Total Guests' column on the guest list excel.
Please note: ‘Total Guests’ is not the number of additional guests coming with the main guest, it is the total number of guests including the Main Guest.
How to account for Additional/ +1 guests on the Excel file
To ensure an accurate guest count the Total Guests logic is as follows =
No RSVP = 0 Total Guests
(This is to account for anyone not expected to come and won't count them toward total guest count. Choose NO RSVP after importing when it asks you to assign a default value)
Main Guest Only = 1 Total Guests
Main Guest + 1 = 2 Total Guests
Main Guest + 2 = 3 Total Guests
These numbers are what should be placed in the 'Total Guests' column on the excel spreadsheet for each guest. It should look like the below example:
Pro Tip: zkipster additionally recommends adding a custom guest field for the Guest's Names on the excel so that check-in teams have that information readily available when checking in guests and their +1s.
