Hi Irinea!

I’m getting married on July 24th and although my wedding is a LOT smaller than yours I can hear you on the guest list thing!  We haven’t hammered ours down either, mostly due to space consderations.

I’m currently working on our invites and hopefully we’ll figure out our max people for the deck this weekend and we can mail out the invites.  We have a “B” list so we need to do it super early.

I’d be annoyed if my parents took 150 after I told them 100 but maybe I’m the bridezilla!  As long as your in-laws can invite the 100 you promised them it should be good but I think you, as the bride, should get more than 13 guests!  Good luck!

We are July 24, and our guest list is only 90 invited, probably 50-55 to attend. Very different from yours!

Our guest list is up to about 235 now. My FH’s mom kept trying to add people just because she was invited to their kid’s wedding like 10 years ago. We finally told her that if she hadn’t spoken to them in the last year, they weren’t invited. That cut a few haha.

I finally had to reach a point where I was like, “The guest list is done! I don’t care if you remember someone you forgot later. It’s over.” I sent out Save The Dates and then refused to add anyone else.

Anyway, Hi! I’m Brianne. I’m a July 24 bride as well. I pretty much have all the big stuff done. I just have to finalize little details and finish designing the invites and eventually programs. Luckily, my best friend/ Maid/Matron of Honor is a graphic designer, so she’s doing all of that stuff for me!

OMG Brianne I know how you feel. My Future Mother-In-Law is doing the same thing.  And they assume that I invited everyone they know, who they never even told me about.  I can’t count how many times I gave them the list and said, add who is missing, I don’t know your friends.  But they still swear they put so&so on there.  Ended up having to add about 15 people after I already submitted my final list to the calligrapher.  I finally can cut it off because they have been mailed to me!  and we added so many people that now we only have 2 spare invitations. lovely.

Hi Ladies, 

We sent out our invites 3 weeks ago and our rsvps are due back this week…and the inlaws keep adding people!  I am not joking when I say our guest list grew by about 30 people AFTER the invites were sent out!  And our list was huge to begin with!  We started out thinking we would have about 300 invited, when invites went out we had just under 350…now it is at 375!!!!  When it was 350 i thought we would still have close to 300 attending…now i am worried we are going to have close to 350 attending!  Ack!  At least the Future In-Laws are paying for it!
