I am desperately scanning my facebook friend list for potential people to invite to my wedding! hahah that sounds utterly rediculous as I know most people are trying really hard to scale down their guestlist. I have 90 people on the invite list right now which is a fine number, the problem is that most of them are family or older people and I really want to have fun at my wedding (i.e. dance!). I definitely have friends coming, but I know not all of my friends who are invited can come, so I’m trying to add to the list. Don’t worry though, I didn’t create a facebook event to invite everyone I know lol.
Is anyone else worried about making sure there are enough people at your wedding to make it fun? I don’t need an all night crazy party, but I don’t want to have an empty dance floor either!
What are you doing to ensure that your guests have a fun time at your wedding, even if you do have a smaller guestlist? I would love to hear some suggestions!

Haha I have these three gf’s outside the wedding party who just have to be there. They are great friends and they are super outgoing, dance and have a blast kind of people.

I think with some booze and some music it will be a fabulous time. Even if your crowd leans towards older, which ours does they will still be partying it up. I think if you have the energy and excitment it will set the mood for the whole thing. I think smaller might be better in that everyone feels comfortable with each other enough to really let loose.

I’m having a smallish wedding too and am worried about the same thing. But I’ve noticed at the weddings I’ve been to recently, when the bride and groom dance so does everyone else. So I think you two can set the mood.

You will have fun no matter what. In fact sometimes its the older people that have the moves! My parents are always the first out there and many follow. Although going through facebook may be a good idea to ensure you didnt miss someone obvious.

I think if you keep the dance floor proportional to your wedding size, you’ll be able to have a fun dance party no matter how many people attend! I think I read that you can assume 50% of your guests will be on the dance floor and to give 3 sq feet per guest, so that equation should give you a rough estimate of the size dance floor you would want to shoot for! And like someone else said, if the bride and groom are on the dance floor, that’s where everyone will be!

Thanks guys 🙂 I know that no matter what I will have fun at my wedding, I was just worried about how the rest of my guests would feel. But my dance floor is definitely a good size for my guests (thanks to trailmix for that!)
I went through my list again (my guest list, not my facebook one lol) and I think the people who should be attending will be able to make it fun.
And thanks everyone for giving me suggestions! I realized half way through my facebook search how silly it was and thought I’d post about my crazy search here to vent because my FI would never let me live it down if I told him hahah.
