Around 90% of our guests are family (parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts/uncles, cousins, nieces/nephews). Were having a small wedding and dont have many friends due to moving for our jobs.

I don’t really have a set percentage, as we haven’t finalized the guestlist, but then again, I have friends who are closer than some family, and some family I never talk to, and, as petty as it sounds, are always busy and never attend anything, so while I’ll still invite them (maybe, depends on final headcount) its a 99.9% that they’ll say no. But for my side (since we’re each working on a list, then going from there to figure other things out) it’ll probably be about 75% family, 25% guests, just because I have a large family, and a smaller circle of friends. 

Wow, that was way longer than I had intended!

Of our 150 person list about 100 are family (including significant others but not including second cousins). 80 of those are FIs.

Invited – 52% family (both Fiance and I), and this does not include our parents friends (61%).  We are having a large wedding… 280 invites (though a good chunk of those are kids and obligatory invites on my mom’s side)  We are expecting about 200 people.

Of those who have rsvp’d already or who have told us they have booked accommodations…60% are family

I just looked at our current guest list, and it’s 60/94 that are family; 25 are mine, 35 are FI’s.

Our first draft of a guest list was around 130 people. The 35-ish people that we cut were all FI’s extended family. We haven’t sent out save the dates yet, and we might add a few of them back in.

Our guest list is almost all family. I’d say it’s about 95% family.

My estimate is around 50%. We don’t see/talk to most of our extended family members. Don’t even exchange Xmas cards.

I think about 80% of the guests we are inviting are family.

We invited about 150 guests and about 85 are family (70 of which are my family!) so about 57%.

Mine is so lopsided.

32% FI’s family
23% FI’s friends/friends of the family
17% FI’s work
11 % my family
11% my friends/friends of the family
6% my work

I worked it all out since I’ve been curious lately. His side just keeps growing much to my dismay lol

Huge percentage – neither of us are super social and honestly the wedding ceremony is for us but everything else is for his family to get together 😊 We’re inviting about 80 people – I’d guess 65 are family.
