    We’re having 90-100 people including +1s. We wanted a smaller wedding so that we could spend a lot of time will all our guests – we’re having a wedding weekend!

    I put the 50-100 people, but actually it should have been the less than 50. we have 47 guests attending, including my Fiance and I

    We invited 320 and are hoping for 250-275 (looks like this may happen with the rsvps that have come in so far!) We both have large extended families and we invited people from work.

    Our venue will hold a maximum of 80, including bride and groom, so that’s our cut off.  Of our invites that we send, we’re hoping at at least 65-70 make it…but we’re also thinking of sending out a second round on invites depending on the numbers.

     This was an easy decision for us, while I have a huge family and we know lots of people, we didn’t want a "big" wedding, although I guess ours will be medium sized.  But we’re also very shy people, so the less people and more intimate the better!

    Right now 279 have been invited. The end total should fall between 200 – 250 guests (hoping closer to 200 )…

    If EVERYBODY comes and all the single people bring guests, we’ll have 170… which was terrifying to me so hopefully it doesn’t happen 🙂  We’re inviting 135 total, I think, because my FI’s family wanted to add on a bunch to the original guest list.

    We wanted less than 100, but it quickly became clear that with his family we’d have more.  We were happy with our 150 total, but this weekend the guest list grew more 🙁

    We need to stop inviting people!
