That’s a toughy.  Even if you have a B-list you may not be able to invite everyone on it so you’ll need to prioritise people. (If you have 10 people on the list but only 8 decline then there will be two left out).

Firstly, I know etiquette states you should invite plus ones but for such a small gathering I’m not sure it is necessary. I doubt it’s the case but if 15 are couples with plus ones then you could end up only knowing 15 people at your wedding (plus ones may not be close or total strangers).  I know I’d rather have my friend.

I’d invited friends by importance and stay-a-bility.  eg: I have friends who I’ve know 15+ years, we’re not best friends anymore but they will probably still be friends in another 15. Does tht help?

@HelleCat:  Yay.  Glad it (my thought process) was of some use 🙂

Yeah, prioritize. 50 people fills up quickly, as I’m learning.

Immediate family takes priority. Extended family that you’re close to. Bridal party. Best and closest friends. Remaining spots goes to anyone else. ie. coworkers, friends that you’re not AS close with, etc.
