Budget Savvy Brides: $5K and Under

How many guests?

I'm really interested to know how many guests you are having on $5000. I'm inviting 125 or so, and I hope to have around 100 actually come.

Okay I'm shocked... how do you do 100+ on a $5000 budget?!?! I'm in awe lol.


We are inviting 40. We know all 40 will show and we are unfortunately having to turn alot of people away. Just telling them family and close friends only.

We're inviting around 120, but I'm really thinking around 100 will show. Some of which will be kids which are cheaper when it comes to food and bar prices pp, so that always helps :D

We just got engaged and haven't really sat down to confirm our list, but we think it will be around 50.  We really don't want a huge wedding, so it will just be family and close friends.

I'm thinking about 25 at most will be there. I could invite more, but we're wanting something much smaller.

I have a draft sheet of 84 people. I think I'd like to aim for about 60ish.

Sending out about 100 invites (so including guests and spouses we're actually inviting 100+), hoping for 80 actual people at the wedding.  There are a lot of out-of-towners on the guest list so this might be a good possibility..

About 40, but I'd rather have about 4 !!! We envisaged a very small intimate ceremony, forgetting that there are 16 members of my immediate family, so it's going to be much bigger than we'd like it to be

Well our list is 300, but most likely only 250 will show. My dad's family is HUGE, and there is no way I can leave anyone else out. OMG how am I going to do this on a college student's budget? :S
