I am.  We are having 50-60 people.  We are doing a beach wedding.  We rented a house in the Outer Banks and we are having the reception at the house.

My wedding had 11 people, total. We rented a private room in a restaurant for the reception. 

We are doing a separate party which will have about 75 people, and we rented a private home for that.

We’re having 20-30 people too.  We got a private room in a nice restaurant just to have a dinner reception.

We had a private room in a restaurant (invited 30, 17 showed up due to crappy weather) and went that route–this was the day after our ceremony. The day of, we had an even smaller crowd of like 12 people total, so we just bought some sandwich stuff, made cupcakes, and hung out at my grandma’s house for a while afterward.

We had 49 people and we closed down a small restaurant so they only served us for the few hours of the reception

We are planning the same size wedding. We are currently deciding whether to have our ceremony outdoors on the shore and reception in the restaurant of an inn OR have our ceremony and reception at a hotel. What I really want to do is have our ceremony and reception at a park around a gazebo…but I’m not ready to stress myself out with all the coordinating.

We had 30 people for the ceremony, and then 90 for the reception. We got married at a B&B, and had the reception there. If we didn’t invite more for the reception, I would have just had it at the restaurant at the B&B.

We are having a 20-30 person wedding, including us, next month.  We rented a cabin for the wedding and reception.  It will also double as housing for most everyone. 

It will be more like a family vacation with a wedding thrown in at the very begining.  LOL

My wedding is in 2 weeks and we have 30 people including ourselves.  We got a nice semi-private room in a restaurant for dinner.

my wedding consists of me and fiance, and 6 guests.   we are having a destination wedding.  the 6 guests are my 2 kids and their partners and his 2 kids. 

if we had got married at home,  it would have been a wedding with 100 guests,  but we wanted a honeymoon too, so we figured that 8 of us can go abroad and do it on the beach much cheaper than having 100 people come and celebrate with us,  and thats how i justified paying for our kids to come along with us.  the girls will be my bridesmaids,  and it will just be like a family holiday.

My daughter and her husband had 55 people at their wedding. The ceremony was in a Catholic church and the reception was outdoors in a botanical garden.

I’m having small intimate 35ppl.  Ceremony is @ a local state park overlooking the beach  and then having a wedding dinner @ a local restaurant that I know some of my “foodie” guests will enjoy.   I wanted to have a gourmet truck but I didn’t want to deal w/ the clean-up.

This coming Saturday afternoon we will have 20 immediate family members at our wedding ceremony in our living room.  Afterwards we are having an open house reception in our home.  We’ve invited about 85 people to that.
