    @Snowden:  We decided on a large family event fairly quickly, but if I were to go back and do it all again, I’d totally go small.  Honestly, I wanted to have it both ways, so we just went with bigger. 😛  Could you two call a compromise? A destination wedding with about 30-40?

    when i was younger i wanted a huge affair,  the older i got, the smaller i wanted it to be.

    my wedding will be 135 invited, it is bigger than i wanted but FI has a lot of people to invite that he didn’t want to cut out.

    Family is very important to both of us and knew the day wouldn’t be the same without them. We both have very large families and are having 300+ guests. It’s exactly what we always wanted and what everyone expects from us.

    When I was younger I wanted a huge wedding at a hall…


    Now I want a tiny wedding (60 people) at a nice country inn…


    factors that changed my mind:

    – I think inn’s are prettier than halls

    – price

    – I only want people I really care about to be there

    – when my dad died I sorta just stopped caring about having a huge thing since he wont be there

    I always wanted a big wedding.  Just could not imagine it any other way.  Dh would have been happy with a much smaller affair (50) people BUT I usually have that many people at our kids birthday parties and for Thanksgiving.  I think we had a medium sized wedding ( around 133 people) and it worked out perfectly for us.  Plus if I was going to invite my family who I just had to invite, I had to have an event to invite them to.  We had been together for so long, everyone was waiting for our wedding day.
