How many guests are you planning to have at your wedding? How did you and your FI decide what size you wanted (budget, dreams scenarios, etc.)?

I included at 250+ option but it didn''t show up--sorry for you LARGE wedding ladies! Just vote in the largest category and post to clarify if you don''t mind

We''re having 40-50. We don''t want a big show of a wedding. The idea of saying my wedding vows is a VERY personal thing for me. We both would even consider eloping, but we would like to share it with our CLOSE friends and family...

Ours is double the last category... 450-500 it seems. My parents are using this as a chance to entertain all their friends and associates and FI and I don''t mind. The more people there, the less we''ll notice his mom!

We are having 40. We really thought it would be nice to have a small intimate ceremony w/ the people that are closest in our lives.

I wanted 50... but we have humongous families and we''re desperately trying to keep it under 100! Eep!

We originally dreamed of having 50 guests, but close family friends on my side account for 52! So now we''re trying to keep it under 70 people. Small weddings appeal to us because of the intimacy and the lower costs.

Ours is about 150- probably a little more.

It''s looking like anywhere from 85-100, which is what we want.

We''d like 100 or a little less, but the current guest list is about 180 -not ideal. I have a very Catholic family. Minus my mom and myself. My FI is talking about his 6 cousins and only one of them is over 20. I have tons and they are all married, except one, and they all have 4,000 children.

we started at 75 but have crept up to 100 and we''re cutting back on other things to get back on our budget! the budget cutting is worth it if all 100 show up :)

I would love to keep it at about 80, but we''re up to 90 guests and a bridal party of 10, so 100, it''s an OK number. A few of my cousins live interstate so I''m not sure if they''ll make it but I wanted to invite them anyway. We''ll see how we go

Wanted to keep it around 200, looks like it'll be closer to 250 invited. And that is a SERIOUSLY pared-down list. I grew up in the same small, close community that my parents did... and with my dad's businesses, we know pretty much everybody in town. But we had to chop it off somewhere... can't quite justify $200+ a head for EVERYONE...

Me and my fiance wanted it under 300, but my mom calls everyday with someone else that needs to be invited. I think the whole town is invited to be honest with you.....

I think we''ll be in the most popular category (80-109) as well... although I''m secretly hoping that some extended family members will rsvp a "no"
is that wrong? I wish we could be more on the 60-70 level!

I don''t think it''s wrong to hope that some distant relatives won''t come. We''re doing the same thing. I haven''t seen some of my cousins since I was 10, but I can''t invite their siblings and not them... so I''m sending them with fingers crossed. If that''s bad then I don''t want to be good.

Inviting 480 with the hope that 400 will come...because that''s what the church will hold. Growing up in a small town with a close-knit church community...and having large families on both sides will do that to you!
