Right now we have 122 and it should stay there. We did not want a big wedding and it was too expensive to invite lots of people.

we started with a 150 goal. told our venue we would have a 130 minimum (that would be excellent!) but right now have 165 on the invite list.  145 would be fab!

We’re hoping to invite about 140ish, and that will mean we’ll end up with about 115 or 120!

Originally said 200, but it’s now at 250, and that’s the cut off.  We have some people we still want to invite, but are going to wait on rsvp’s hopefully they come in early enough so it doesn’t look bad.

We’ve invited 85. Hopefully we’ll be around 75 as a final number 🙂

We invited 160 and had 106 people that actually came!  It was nice and intimate, even though 106 still seemed like a big number!

We were originally hoping for 120-ish. But after doing just the family count and hitting 75, we had to bump up the list to around 180-200 for the reception and more like 275-300 for the ceremony/cake reception.

Because of the numbers issue, and getting married in the church my Fiance grew up in. We’ll be having two receptions. One will be a cake/hors d’oeuvres reception in the church fellowship hall where all the wedding guests will be invited and then we’ll be having a more formal sit down dinner reception elsewhere where only family and close friends will be invitied. It was hard to really cut down the list for the ceremony since both Fiance and I have grown up in the same town all our lives.

Yeah- it’s a complicated wedding plan/day but our coordinator said it’ll be fine and the timing will all be okay. And I’m hoping she is right!

My original list that included just my family and my parents friends- not my coworkers, my friends, or Mr. KMs friends or family was at 150. 150. For 1/3 of the people that needed to be invited. Yeah, that got cut down REAL fast!

We’re inviting exactly 178 and we have to pay for at least 125 so hopefully it works out!
