bleh. I was in a sorority and fiance was in a fraternity in college so we are inviting a lot of friends. Hard to find a good spot to make a cut off. LOL I also come from a large family that stays in contact and fiance is like half the size of mine if not smaller. So majority of the guests at the wedding will be from my side. Just kinda how it worked out.

About a third of our guests will be our friends, a third of guests are my family (or people connected to me through my parents) and the final third are my FI’s family (or people connected to him through his parents). I think there’s around 30 friends on our guest list (including their SO’s).

I’m not sure of the ratio invited but we ended up with about 50/50.

  • Wedding: March 2015

We had close to 150 guests. I personally invited only 2 friends (and their SO’s). I had recently had a falling out with my closest friends, so I didn’t invite them or anyone who was close to them (come from a small community, it was easiest to make a clean cut this way). I didn’t invite any coworkers, as I wasn’t close to any of them. If I’d been working at my current job, I would have inivited many more. DH invited probably 30-40 friends, and another 15 or so coworkers. The rest was family between us.

We had 20’people and six were friends (3 friends and of their spouses).  We invited about 3 more friend guests plus spouses who couldn’t make it but we had a destination wedding. We basically invited immediate family only and very very very close friends.
