My friend is getting married tomorrow and they have a guestlist of 1100! I’m really excited to see how it will all turn out. She’s been stressing for months and I just hope everything goes perfectly for her. Some of our friends have joked that we won’t expect her to greet us as she will be busy greeting everyone else.
So Bees, what’s the most guests you’ve ever seen at a wedding and how did it go?

Wowza. I need to tell my grandmother this! She thought my 150 was ridiculously large!

I have been to several weddings with well over 500 guests and they all went really well! The most important thing is organization and staff. If you are having 1100 guests you need ten buffet lines, 20 bartenders, etc.

THATS HUGE!!! I wouldn’t even be able to deal with that, I would get so overwhelmed and end up hiding in the bathroom with my ears plugged crying. I wish her good luck though! She must have a massive venue…
I think the biggest I’ve ever seen was like… 200.

WOW! I am not envious of that in the least!! We’re only having 38 😛 Small and intimate.
The biggest wedding I’ve been to had around 200. As far as I can remember it went fine.

The biggest I’ve seen is about 200, but those were small town weddings after church where they just invite the congregation.
As far as weddings where everyone who comes actually receives an invitation, I’d say about 175 or so. Most people around here don’t really go all out.
I can’t imagine more than 500. That would be INSANE.

Is she related to Donald Trump or Bill Gates or something? Holy hell! I’m not envious of that. Even 60 is too many for me to handle, lol! Good luck!

I don’t even know that many people let alone am I close enough to that many people to invite them to my wedding.

Wow, that’s huge! But if my dad was allowed to invite everyone he wanted, our list would be pushing 700! I’ve been to several 500-600 people weddings that went off without a hitch (as far as I know), the smallest ever was 200 and ours is between 300-400. Hope everything goes smoothly!

Wow. How do they know so many people?!

I went to a wedding where there were about 400 people. That was like whoa….
Can’t imagine 1100.

I think the biggest I’ve been to is about 300. On average most of the weddings I’ve been to have been around 100, with very few lower than that.

@miss_leafheart: Where is the wedding? Why type of wedding? I have seen a wedding with 800 guests and it was an Indian wedding (beautiful!).
