How many people are you inviting?

Just wondering how many wedding guests did you invite/are inviting to your big day? Do you consider this a big or small guestlist. We invited 50 and nearly everyone showed. I thought it was small until I saw all of them there. It just looked like sooo many people, but I was happy to have them all there.

We were 80 and it was more than enough (I did a LOT of DIY)!


I had a wedding last week end we were 300 guests and the next one it's the same number!

I will be inviting 225 but I'm pretty sure we will have many more than that, closer to the 400 mark. My FI doesn't want anyone to feel left out, but I am DIYing most of my elements and I finally told him that I was not making more than 225 invitations. So all that gets invitations will get all the favors and so on and will have really nice seating at the ceremony & reception everyone else will just get what is left over. Sorry if that sounds mean, but I woldn't show up to a wedding or event that I wasn't invited too! I feel that 225 is plenty!

We're having 107 (funny number...ahah) guests if everybody shows up. At first, I thought it was a medium wedding but now, I think it will be quite a big wedding. But seriously, after planning, I'm not sure anymore that "small" or "big" wedding apply according to the number of guests. I think it's more about the efforts and energy we put into the preparation. So I guess every PW ladies have/had big wedding ;)!

we wanted between 80-100 people, made the guest list, and everything was great. well, as time went on and family members and friends came out of the woodwork, we are now around 130-140. im hoping only 100-120 show, but we are sending invites next week, so we'll see who rsvps!

We invited about 180. Hoping for 150! I would consider that medium. Not a small wedding, but definitely not as big as it could have been with my family. We have 40-50 people just when we do family get togethers! So I think we'll be good @150!

My fmil doesn't understand the statement "the shelter has a 40 person capacity" so right now we are at about 60. I'm HOPING we can get the guest list down.

We are currently sitting at 218 and I'm expecting about 175.


It is a much bigger wedding than I expected when I started the planning process.

We invited 25 and about 15 showed up to our semi-DW. It was awesome because we came in way under budget lol.
