Too pathetic lol.
Too pathetic lol.
So the deal is that there will be only 20 people at the wedding period? Or how many total?
@solidarity: No, I came up with about 90-100 people, which is including my whole family, my friends, and assuming most of them bring dates. If he has even 20 guests, that means we still have 40 empty spots. I just don’t know this many people! I thought I did, but I guess not.
I say stick to the 90 and use the money for upgrades!
I found that my parents friends is a huge section of our guest list
We can’t use the money for upgrades 🙁
Is it strange to invite other “levels” I guess of friends? Say for instance, people I used to hang out with a lot, but haven’t seen much this past year? Or people from work? People I don’t consider “best” friends but still have fun with when we all go out to clubs, etc?
Yikes! I don’t know what to tell you. We’re inviting FI’s family from Jamaica but I’m not expecting ANY of them to actually make the trip. I lumped them in with the 18 people that I need to actually decline to meet the 20% rule.
Sounds like you have no choice but to open it up to “everyone” you know. :-/
If by chance, something like this happens to me, I can easily invite people from my sorority. They will show up in a heartbeat.
Do you have to have 160? I’ve never really understood guest minimums. You could invite people you aren’t that close to but I don’t know if you aren’t that close if you could expect them to come and/or would want them to.
I don’t know if this is just because Fiance has such a tiny guest list and now I have to make up for it, but I am feeling like such a loser that I don’t know and love 140 people. It’s like this is making me realize how small my family and friends circle is. I can think of about 40 people total that I would probably “need” to have in my life.
Invite more people!!
@MrsCreeToBe: Also keep in mind that not everyone you end up inviting will be able to attend, so even if you invite 160 you may get some declines. I agree with PP and you should upgrade food/beverage options etc instead of inviting people just to fill the spots.
You aren’t a loser! I have a small immediate family like you and only a handful of close friends. Quality over quantity I say !
