I see some people with weddings consisting of 40 or 50 people, and others with an excess of 250. I’m wondering, who do you invite? Was it just the closest friends and family? Or everyone you know? Did you just invite family, but have a HUGE family? Or mostly friends? Nobody? lol

We’re inviting over 250 people. I have a big extended family, we are inviting all of our friends and my FI’s coworkers are also his friends because of the army. Large bunch, but everyone who is invited I consider to be close to us

Immediate family and our parents immediate families. And friends we’ve known for few years at least. Total count was 102.

I voted for all family, friends etc. Only because there wasn’t an ‘all family, some friends’ option. We will (depending on budget) be inviting all family, and our limited circle of friends 🙂

@Jacqui90: Sorry! >_< Yeah… I tried to keep it to a minimum. Too many options doesn’t work out so well. I figured more people would invite friends over all family like… great aunt twice removed and 3rd cousins… so I was hoping “most family” would fit the bill. Mah bad!

@yanamari: Yeah we will only be inviting close family, aunts, 1st cousins, etc. No 3rd cousins lol. FI has a BIG family.

My parents, DH and I invited just close family and friends. DH’s parents invited I think anyone they may have ever met in their lives. A few times they pondered who a certain person on the list was. DH and I knew this wasn’t a fight we were going to win so we just told them if they’re going to do that, to forget my parents paying for the whole do as originally planned and that everyone can pay for their own guests.

76 people = 2 tables of family, 4 tables of friends, 1 table of wedding party. Each table sat 8-12 and some tables were at exactly 8. Way more friends than family but we are close with a lot of our friends.

My guest list is 170 — of that, I think 120 is family (aunts, uncles, cousins – nobody more distantly related than first cousins). About 30 more are family friends of our parents, and the last 20 are our friends. We had to seriously cut back friends to accomodate family.
