First wedding: 80 people.
Second wedding, ceremony and luncheon: 11 people
Second wedding, at-home reception: 60 people
Honestly, I cannot imagine wanting to have several hundred people there. At that point, you wouldn’t really get to talk with anyone in any depth, because you’d have to keep all conversations short in order to even get to say hello to everyone.

16 including us! We wouldn’t have wanted it any bigger; we actually got more people than we expected!

There will be 8 people altogether. My fiance, me, his mother and father, my mother her husband, and my father and his wife. We are getting married at a bed and breakfast in St. Augustine.

I really hate it when people ask that question – because I secretly feel they are calculating their chances of being invited – which is just rude. We are having about 150. My FI’s family thinks that is so tiny. I think it is enormous! Oh, compromise…

I keep getting different responses.
I tell people back home that it’s 100-120 and then remark how that’s a nice size, to even big. Which is odd, since most people have large families that they want at their weddings.
I tell people at school and they call that a “nice, small wedding”. Way to live up to the Texan stereotype guys…

60 people. If we had done it in my home country it would be at least twice that, but noone from FH’s friends or family would be able to make it. At least my immediate family and a few others from back home were able to attend our wedding here. It was small and intimate, but still wonderful to us.

Interesting. This should be revived. 🙂
