My rehearsal dinner has spiraled out of control! We invited a few people to be polite (aunts & uncles not in the wedding), thinking they wouldn’t come because it is far away and means they’d have to come in a day earlier, and they accepted! Whoops.
We will have around 27-30 guests for the rehearsal dinner and 120 for the wedding. That seems like a high ratio to me, almost 25%!

25 and 120. My Fiance and I are paying for the rehearsal so we’re keeping it to just bridal party (and SO’s) and immediate family.

I had no idea people had such huge numbers for rehearsal before I came to the bee. We are probably having 25 at rehearsal and are inviting 400 to the wedding (ahhhh!).

15 at the rehearsal dinner and 175 at the wedding. But due to venue constraints, our rehearsal is Wednesday with the wedding Saturday. So lots of out of towners aren’t here yet.

Ha, I just realized I said the girls here have large rehearsal dinners, and no one posted anything HUGE. And with me inviting 400 people you’d think I wouldn’t think of 40-50 large. I need sleep.

Okay, these numbers are making me feel better!

I’m not sure, but our rehearsal dinner will be very small, 2 BMs, 2 GMs, me & fi, our parents, officiant & dj, that’s about it!
We are only having 45-60 guests at our wedding.
