Gosh no! we have 55 people at our house warming, and out house is 1197 sqf. And it was full but not over crowded. We opened up our yard for more seating, and it was just fine!!

You could have an Open House- indicating that your guests are welcome to drop by between the hours of __ and __.

People will tend to come and go and likely not everyone will be there at any one time.

What time is the rehearsal? Are you planning on feeding the wedding party?

@bourkelton:  We have a post-wedding luncheon/come see our new house paryt the next day and we have about 60 people on the list so far. Our home is about 1,900 square feet and I was just wondering the same thing since I would like to invite more of our friends, haha!

@bourkelton:  i think it’s a great idea, and i’m sure your house isn’t too small. i second the idea of an open house between __ and __ so that people are filtering in and out – that will help with the crowded issue. 


we’re doing to same – we’re hosting a welcome bbq in my parents backyard for immediate family, bridal party and out of town guests. it’ll be about 50 people (we think!) and i honestly think that people will be excited to be included, and won’t be worried about how spacious your place is!
