I have more people on my portion of the list because the wedding is 1 hour from my hometown and 1200 miles from his. He doesn’t seem to mind. My parents are paying a portion, we are paying a portion and his parents are covering the rehearsal dinner (since they have to pay for flight and what not). If you want to invite more people, is it possible for you to pitch in moneywise?

I do! We are having about 50 people. 4 are mutual friends of ours, 6 is his family, 3 is family friends. I have 21 family, 9 family friends. For this situation, I think that we are going to make one of those “two families are becoming one. Pick a seat, not a side” type of things.

My Fiance has a lot more guests than me, but his parents are helping and mine aren’t. I just don’t want to invite friends I’m not super close with. Even if the money was different I would not want more people there just to say the sides were even. Honestly if I’m not close friends with someone, I won’t miss them if they’re not at the wedding. All that being said, it does not bother me that Fiance has more friends coming because I know he is inviting people who are important to him.

I have about 2/3 the guest list and Fiance has about 1/3. But I have a lot more family then Fiance, plus my parents are helping us pay so they got to invite some of their friends too.

I have been working on a preliminary guest list, which I know will change by the time we get there…. but if you count strictly blood family, I have 42 to his 12. That being said however, he has a lots of family friends and friends added to the list, plus some mutual ones so if you add the mutual ones to his half of the list, it’s also 50/50. Quite literally, 50/50!
