We’re hovering around 40. We have a big wedding party, my parents are divorced, and I’m inviting a few aunts and uncles with whom I’m very close (they are helping me pay for the wedding but I’d invite them even if they weren’t), so that has inflated the number. We just started planning this thing so no idea on budget.

We only invited immediate family and bridal party with S/O. So around 18 people total. Officiant was at the rehearsal, but could not make the dinner.

Our immediate families are huge. it looks like approximately 55 people will be at the rehearsal dinner.
We we are catering from an ItalIan restraurant, meeting everyone at a pavilion in a park, and expect it to be 500-800 bucks.

It was just our immediate family and the pastor and his wife. We didn’t have any bridesmaids or groomsmen.

My Mother-In-Law wanted to invite all out of town guests, and neither of our families are local. We had nearly the whole wedding there minus a few local friends. It was a really nice gesture. They paid for it and wanted our families to meet and mingle before eke actual wedding. Maybe like 55-60?

Oh wow this is all much lower than what I am budgeting though we are having a “welcome dinner” since we are doing a small (80 ppl invited total) destination wedding. We are inviting everyone but figure only half will attend.

We had all out of towners which was basically our whole families and many friends, and a handful of very close local friends (we didn’t have a bridal party but we invited local people who are “bridal party level” friends.) I think it was about 70 people and our wedding was 125, so more than half. It was pretty expensive like over 10k but it was sooooo fun.

We invited immediate family, bridal party and spouses, our officiant, and everyone that had traveled from out of town. Approx. 60 people, most were out-of-towners. My Mother-In-Law was a very gracious host, I’m not sure of the exact number but if I had to guess the total was probably around $20K.

We had about 40 people… Bridal party x2 as they almost all have a significant other. Parents, siblings, sibling’s SO, nieces and nephews, my aunt and uncle who I’m very close to, their son and his gf, my other cousin who flew with my sick mom on the plane across country ( and his gf), and then my husband wanted to include two of his childhood friends who were coming from across country, I’m not sure why but they came with their wives. Oh and anyone who had come from another country, 3 people. Total about 42. I originally wanted just bridal party and siblings but it kinda crept out from there…

We did bridal party, immediate family, and aunts and unclea (siblings of our parents.) I can’t remember if we invited cousins. Literally everyone travelled to our wedding, so we couldn’t invite everyone from out of town, but it felt weird not to invite all relatives. We ended up with around 40 guests.
