    Haha, I have no idea! I don’t really think there’s any real guidelines as to what is a “big” wedding – it’s probably different for every person! FI and I feel like we’re keeping it small by only having about 100 at ours, but we’ve had people balk at how big that is! I think in my circle of friends and going by the weddings I’ve been to, I’d consider more than 300 a big wedding.

    I think 150 is big…but I know most people don’t. That’s just a whole lotta damn people for me!

    Personally, anything over 150 is big. But I think traditionally, over 200 is considered big. I have a really small family, so really even 150 is pushing it.

    I’d consider over 200 big. I come from a pretty big family, so in my mind that accounts for at least fifty guests from the start. 100-200 would be average, less than 100 small.

    big as in the traditional “big” wedding- 150+

    small- under 150

    but if you want to add “normal/average size”

    small- maybe 100 and under

    average- about 100-250

    big- over 250

    For a traditional wedding I voted that anything over 200 is big!

    But for my particular wedding a DW in Aruba, I think anything over 50 is big!!  So when I tell people that my invite list is 130…they’re response, “woah, thats BIG!”

    We wanted to invite 150 people and are now inviting 225 people (and that’s after major cuts to the groom’s side – le sigh). To me, given my family size, 150 is about the norm. 200 is big. 225 is… ah, don’t get me started. But it really depends on how many people you have in your family! To each their own.
