I believe we’re having a small wedding by NYC and chinese cultural standards.

145 guests, expect 125 to attend

1 Maid/Matron of Honor, 1 Bridesmaid, and 1 Bride’s Attendent

1 Best Man and 1 Groomsmen

I know the bridal party is not even but I think with our intimate ceremony, it will be fine.

4 each in the bridal/groom’s party.  We are inviting 200 to the ceremony and reception, but because we are having 2 tea ceremonies (and not everyone comes to the ceremony portion), it’s unclear at this point how many people will be showing up to my parents’ house!

We are inviting 323, hoping for no more than 250. I have 1 Maid/Matron of Honor and 11 bride’s maids. He has a Bridesmaid or Best Man and 11 attendants. No flower girls, no ring bearers. We’re having our Ceremony & Reception at the same venue: The Glen Sanders Mansion in Upstate, NY. http://www.glensandersmansion.com

3 attendents on each side, no rb or fg, though.

 Inviting 75 (including us and wedding party) and expecting that many. Only close friends and family are invited, 99% of the people are local, and they only family having to travel for it already told us they will be making the flight out to come.

How funny is it that we invite all these people, and "hope" for not all of them to come???  I wonder why we don’t only invite the people we really want…oh yeah – its our parents fault! ; )

I have 3 girls, 2 guys, 2 fg’s, inviting 150ish, PRAYING for 130!

I was too paranoid to invite more than we could accomodate, but it was definitely a struggle to appease the parents. 

So as of now we are inviting 110. 

We have 4 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen and no fg or rb.
