People would always ask me “are you having a big wedding?” (Which I find to be a really awkward question for some reason.) When I would say “about 100 people” I would always hear “wow that’s big!”
Is it though? I thought it was kinda mid size. What about you? What do you consider a “big wedding?”

We had a wedding with just over 100 people. Most people who I talked to see to think that was on the small(er) size but it worked perfectly for us 🙂

We ended up with 130 on the nose. A big wedding to me is 200+ people.

I thought 100 was small. hehe. I think 250 to 300 is big. 150 to 200 medium. I just it just depends on what you consider a big wedding.
I think we will have about 120 show with about 150 invited. It is hard to say how many people will come though. My Fiance hasnt given me his guest list yet so I just estimated. 120 seems small to me

I feel like >100 is small, 100-200 is medium/average, and 200+ is big.

Ours is going to be 100-150 depending. We have a lot of OOS guests (and even one from England) and we are making sure to get our Save the Dates out 7 – 8 months in advance just so they REALLY have time to plan. I didn’t think that was big but my mother sure does.

We’re inviting 80 people which I definitely consider small (but its perfect for us). I would say anything over 200 would be considered a “big” wedding. One of our groomsmen is Albanian and they have weddings with over 1000 people!

It’s funny, I once mentioned off-handedly to my Fiance that the wedding we were going to was going to be “small.” When he asked what that meant, I said, “Oh, they only invited 60 people.” He was like, “What? 60 people is a lot!! That’s not small!” Hilarious.
I consider our wedding to be small-medium – we’re inviting almost 80, and hoping to have about 65 actually come.

It certainly does depend on where you are getting married… I think that a domestic/local wedding between 100-150 is medium size but sounds HUGE to me… that’s just because I’m having an international wedding and I couldn’t image trying to manage 100 peole in Costa Rica.
We are inviting about 100 but expecting only about 60 which is a fairly small wedding by traditional terms but probably on the larger side for an international destination wedding.

Ours will be about 130, which I consider medium-sized. I think of anything under 50 as “intimate,” 50-100 as “small,” and…maybe anything over 200 as “big.” But I also know there are cultures in which a few hundred guests (which I would consider “huge”) is the norm.

151 exactly…which is the number I wanted originally. We invited 202, so I thought there was no way we would have under 160. I was really happy! To me, anything under 100 is small, 101-165 is medium, and anything above that is big.

We’re having 70-80. Like MightWombat, I always thought our wedding was small and people are telling us it’s “big”!
