So, we had 300 people at our wedding, but our reception was pretty long. We had an hour cocktail hour as well as a 5 hour reception. I think that was key in helping us be able to talk to everyone and still be able to dance and have fun with each other. It was also great that our photographer didn’t take up a lot of time getting formal pictures from us, so we made most of our cocktail hour as well.

We had 270. Right after dinner we went from table to table and said our hellos. We didnt spend too much time at each table and all of our guests understood we had a lot of people to see.

I did spend time with hubby but we weren’t together the whole night which is kind of nice. You will be having so much fun this thought will not even come in your head!

tbh, I didn’t spend any time really with my husband my whole wedding day except our first look and when we got back to our cabin at 1am lol. I mean, he sat right next to me during the whole party, but we really didn’t have time to have any real time to “be” with each other because we were really busy chatting with everyone else. We had 90 guests.

We had abotu 170 guests at our wedding. I was very surprised that I did get to speak with everyone throughout the evening. I made rounds during cocktail hour and then Darling Husband and I made our rouds to toast each table (a tradition in our culture) when the entrees were served at the reception. That helped a lot to get to talk to groups of 10 at a time.

The night does go by really really really quickly so I barely remember saying much to anyone.

I had a wedding with 55 guests and I barely had time to talk to all of them! I certainly said hello to everyone, and talked to some people more than others. Darling Husband and I ate dinner together, and talked to a few people together, but we were much more focused on our guests than on each other.

That’s why I HIGHLY recommend building in the Jewish tradition of spending 15-30 minutes together, alone, immediately after the ceremony. It was so nice to have that time, just the two of us.

we had 175 guests and we did go round to each table to take a picture with them and thank them for coming, I dont know that I spoke to each individual person, can hardly remember everything goes by so fast
