So my gf and I are putting together a “who would we invite” list and we already have about 100-150 guests! I can’t believe it!
How many people did you invite to your wedding and how many showed up!
If anyone had their wedding in San Diego or LA, where was the venue!?

24 immediate-family only guests followed by dinner on a Friday night.
115 guests to a party (with no wedding trappings) on Saturday night.
private home-San Diego.

@Payless: How did that work with the food? I’m wondering because don’t venues charge for the person?

220 Invited. 160 RSVPd “yes”. 150 actually showed up.It was big, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way!

@otto2008: We invited 160 and 130 people attended.
Our wedding was near Sacramento. However, my cousin got married near San Diego at the San Clemente Casino and it was lovely. She had about 150 or so guests and it fit everyone beautifully.

We’re inviting 130. Our venue holds seating for about 100 people comfortably, but I’m guessing a few will decline, and even if they don’t I’m sure we’ll find extra seats somewhere lol

50 guests for our welcome dinner and reception, about 25 for our thank you brunch.

We are inviting like 165 but that is giving some people guests who we highly doubt will bring a guest. I am expecting about 120 total to actually come.

@otto2008: I rented a private cabin so I wasn’t charged for anything ridiculous Muahahaha!
The caterers were super cool and just left the extra food with us since the containers they were being heated in were disposable (we had a buffet style dinner). My family took home lots of leftovers and any extra chairs were set up so people could admire the lake or sit around the fire place 🙂
If you haven’t picked a venue then I highly suggest looking for vacation rentals because they are cheaper, you can provide your own alchohol, you can deccorate however you want, plus you can hire whatever vendors you like (even unlicensed friends)!
