    We’re maxing out at 300. We both have huge families. We are being told that the numbers won’t effect the amount of friends we can invite, but realistically I think that it will at least a little bit. Both my mom & FMIL have subtly stated how they’re having trouble limiting their numbers. In the end, they are (very generously) paying for our food & booze so it doesn’t bother me too much if we have to cut our list a little bit. As long as we are able to invite our closest friends, we’ll be happy!

    I will have 236 guests, and that’s still not enough. You can’t invite everyone. His family is small, but mine is huge!

    We invited about 300, ended up with about 230-240, and honestly we still made some cuts. But we were really happy overall with those who were able to attend and celebrate with us!

    we’re having 250 which is on the small side for my culture and the only reason it’s so small is because my Fi’s father was never in the picture so neither was his family so his part of the guest list is very short..I, on the other hand, have a huge family and lots of family friends. I’m not inviting all my friends because 1) there’s not that much room and 2) they’re not all ppl I see myself being friends with 10 years down the road..more like acquaintances I guess

    225 and that was tight. There were a lot of friends we would have liked to invite and couldn’t.

    sorry. Invited 250, 225 came. Wish we could have had more but 225 was enough. It was so hard trying to connect with everyone
