    Our venue has a max of 125 so that is our number and boy did we have to cut to get to that number 🙂

    I’m 250-300 people. About 50 of them will be for me. We live in and are having our wedding in the small town that he’s from. So apparently we HAVE to invite EVERYBODY.

    Yeah… I don’t want to talk about it. Haha.

    We were suppose to have 53 (that includes guests, Bridal Party and B&G), but 2 people didn’t show up, so we were at 51.

    We are capping ourselves at 125, for $$ reasons and also because anything larger seems very big to me. Even that seems kind of big. :

    WAY more than I ever wanted! Our wedding is out of town for most people, so we figured we’d have a pretty high decline rate, but nope. Only about 20 Nos!

    Luckily we have the space and budget to cover it, but it was definitely surprising to us!

    @atalante: lol yup. I have about 95 first cousins so you get the drift. A small wedding in our culture/community is around 300 people. An acquaintance is getting married today and her reception guest list was up to a 1,000 last time I checked. -_-

    @hopefloats: OMG!! How do you pay for that? Seriously, if my wedding was 650 everyone would have gotten a sandwich and a bag of chips LOL!
