i dont want a big wedding 100 ppl at the most. but my guy wants to invite everyone we have every met it seems like… to me a 100 ppl is big but its not realistic for anything less than that… so what your thought?

I think over 100 is quite a bit. Over 200 is a lot. I think 50 is moderately small.

My husband & I had a really small wedding with 20 some people being close family only.

our final head count is 38 and I find that moderately small. Not as intimate as I would have liked, but still small enough that I can speak with each guest. Make sense?

To me, anything under 100 is small.
I did a poll about a year ago on what is a “large” wedding and many people included their comments on what they considered “small” in the comments. It might interest you: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/what-do-you-consider-a-large-wedding

To me a small wedding is under 50 say 12-40 people. I think 50-120 is average at least around here 🙂

I think 50 and under is small. I am thinking our wedding will be around 100, which I think is a good size – not too big, but still a fun party with a lot of our good friends around us.

I really wanted to put less than 50! My SO and I have been considering a tiny destination wedding (only immediate family and our two besties who are convieniently married to each other). We think it would be awesome to go all out and pay for the ones we love the most to take an amazing vaca with us. We would still have a reception when we got home for business associates, college friends, and Out of Town family.

50-60 and under I consider small. We had 100 people at our wedding. It was just right for us. Not too big, not too small. We were able to mingle and talk to our guests throughout the night without feeling overwhelmed. My brother’s and best friend’s weddings were in the 150-200 range. It felt a little overwhelming at times in the big venue with lots of people and sometimes not really knowing everyone as well.

None of the above.
Whenever I talk about a small wedding I’m talking about way less than 50. Like 30 and under if I got my way.

50 or less…although sometimes, based on what I read/see about weddings, under 100 is considered small.

It’s hard. We are having 50. And some people call that small and others say that’s not small. haha

I ended up with 125 and it was small for me.
Other people would think that was a big wedding, but considering I wanted around 250-300 (just couldn’t afford it!), it was my compromise.
As a wedding guest, I think anything under 100 is small.

I think under 100 is small. Our guest list was 60 but we had about 55 people come. I wouldn’t have wanted it any larger than 60, too many people!
