Just curious as to what everyone considers a BIG wedding?
I had a wedding of about 167 people. For us, we thought that was big. BUt then there are other people who were like, “oh thats about average”
I’ve only been to one wedding where there were over 200 people (my SIL), both sides of the family are huge!

I would consider <50 people small, 50-100 fairly small, 100-150 big, and 150+ huge!

I think a guest list of 100 people is average but over 150 is large.
But normally when I think “big wedding” I think of weddings in different cultures which can be as long as 3 or 4 days, or weddings that are a straight 24 hour long celebration. FH is Serbian so I think we will have a pretty big wedding since we’re intercultural, although with a guest list of under 50 people.

@Daizy914: Do a poll!
Anything over 100 guests is big for me. I’m more introverted and FI and I just prefer more intimate weddings. We’re expecting 60-80 guests and I’ve had people tell me that was a massive guest list too, LOL.

I am considering our wedding big at 125 invited but everytime I mention that number to a vendor I can see that they are visibly relieved and then say ‘oh good, it’s so nice to have a small wedding.’ LOL

Well, I had 148 guests at my wedding, and I thought that was a medium-sized wedding. I have one friend who had over 400 people at her wedding, and, last year, I attended a wedding that had over 500 guests. I consider those to be huge weddings. To me, anything over 250 people is a large wedding.

I think anything more than 300 people is big to me. In my area 150-250 is around the norm. Some of my Indian friends have multiday weddings with 500-1000 people, which blows my mind!!

We have to guarantee 125 people for our wedding, so we are going to invite somewhere around 160-175ish. I think ours is somewhat average size. We have a number of friends who are inviting 300+ people…that’s huge, IMO. I consider anything over 200 big, anything over 300 monstrous haha

I think 120+ is big. 150+ is huge!

100+? Maybe 150+?
I think 100 people sounds like a lot to me. 200 strikes me as gigantic.

I think 300+ is kinda big, but it is also average here. Our wedding is about 350. The last four weddings I went to were over 400 guests. I have never been to or knew someone who had a wedding under 250 people.

To me, small is under 100. Medium is 100-200. Large or “big” would be 200-300, which is where mine fell. Anything over 300 would be huge!

3-50: very small
250+: very large
This is just based off the dozen weddings that I have attended.

@Daizy914: I’m planning on having about 150 and people act like it’s crazy-huge. Like my dad thought that was massive and my mom told him it’s less than most people she knows have. I guess it’s all relative to your life experiences with weddings.
