@SeaBaby:  I am also planning a destination wedding. I am inviting 71 people but I know that at least 35 of those can’t come. I am still inviting them because they are family. I have 18 confirmed YES and I hope to have between 25-35 people come.

I am having my wedding in Paris, and inviting people from Canada. Due to my age, I know my 20 year old friends don’t have a couple grand to just throw around, so I’m only inviting my dad, my SO is inviting his dad and his dad’s wife, his three cousins and their husband/boyfriends, and his aunt and uncle. Plus his best friend and his wife.

Lucky for me, one of his cousins is one of my best friends.

So inviting 13. But only except about 7 to come because of babies and money

Getting married in Sweden this summer and we’ll invite people that we won’t expect to come. Simply because we know that an invitation will mean a lot to them. At this point the guest list is at 51, but we expect 37 at most.

Nice to see the low numbers from people!

We’re inviting around 70 and expecting around 40. We are inviting people we know probably won’t be able to come just to be courteous. In fact, there are some people we don’t exactly want coming that we are inviting, but we know they won’t be able to make it (especially because its ~$1000 just for people to fly to our wedding!)

I will do Destination wedding as i live in Canada but my family lives in Japan. So we decided to do in Hawaii, meeting up at the middle point!

I wanted to have a small wedding so I invited 19 people, and so far I receive 4 YES rsvp. I know 3 of them cannot come. So it will be 16 guests max.

We’re only inviting about 12 people- probably 11 will come. Keeping it small- Maui is expensive!!!
