About 90%. Family is forever, so they took priority when it came to our limited guest list.

Our draft guestlist has 50 people – 32 are family and 18 are friends. We’re only inviting grandparents, parents, siblings and nieces/nephews, along with our best friends. This number also includes +1’s.

We’re targeting 250 guests max. Of those, probably 70-80 will be family.

lightchaser:  Good answer

For me it will prbably end up 75% family, a lot of friends would be out of town guests for my wedding (where family wouldnt) so I am sure thaat will impact the numbers some

Our wedding grows by the day. I’d say we are 80% family 20% friends out of a guest list of 70ish.

I’d say about 85% of our guest list is family, we are inviting 74 people

We have 112 on our list, although there are a couple of small changes that might be made. Of this 60 people are family (34 on my side, including some of my step mother’s family, and 26 on FIs), 18 are family friends or friends of our parents (8 on my side and 10 on FIs), 6 are work colleagues (4 on my side and 2 on FIs), and 28 are friends (we share the same group of friends so there is no split here). All of these figures also include SOs or +1s if guests will be receiving them.

More than I thought! 91%, but that includes their +1’s. It’s 4 friends (one couple each) and 39 family members invited. Makes sense, I guess, as we are essentially doing a wedding rather than city hall to keep them happy. But we’ll still have a great time!

HUGE percentage.  My fiance’s family is gigantic.  I only invited very close friends and so did he.  I would say out of our 117 guests, 90-95 are family members! But it’s all good, we love everyone that’s attending!

Our guest list is only 28% family (23 out of 80). We both have very small families, thank goodness.

He and I are both one of five.  He is from England, so unfortuantely few will be attending.  Our total list is about 180 people – thanks to my mohter (mandatory – UGH!!!).  We will see about 125.  More than half witll be family, but good, wanted family :-)!  Maybe even closer to two-thirds, but still lost of friends!!!
