    @pinkbean:  Small, detailed wedding for sure!  I think it’s more important to hav the people you really love with you on your wedding day, rather than inviting a bunch of random people

    @pinkbean:  I honestly think people will enjoy it more!  It will be more personal and there won’t be a bunch of random people.  Your guests will all know each other and be comfortable around one another!

    I think you are leaning towards a smaller affair 🙂 Great decision and Congratulations!

    Small, detailed wedding absolutely.

    We originally had a guest list of nearly 300 people but realized that we wanted an over top and detailed wedding and would have to cut somewhere. Our budget tripled and we cut the guest count to 130 people and in the end we had exactly what we wanted.

    All of this! We’re having a small wedding, and I don’t think I’ll regret it at all.

    i was going for a smaller wedding.. and then i realized just how much family i have and my parents would like me to invite them all haha. DO IT SMALLER!! itll be more fun/special and you can invite those people you really want there and not feel obligated b/c they’re family!

    I’m having a wedding for 50 and that’s my absolute cap, I didn’t want a bigger wedding. Go ahead, your guests won’t enjoy it any less!

    We only want people at the ceremony that we are VERY close to; for the evening reception (in the UK it’s commonly split like that), we are opening it up slightly, to colleagues etc, but even thenm are only inviting people we actually like and want there, and will certainly not be making up numbers.

    We didn’t even contemplate inviting people just for the sake of it; it never even crossed our minds. We are having 50 guests to the day, a further 30 to the evening.

    So I voted to keep it small 🙂

    @pinkbean:  we’re having a “small” wedding too… 75 people, family and close friends only. We could have stretched and invited 200+, but we had the same mentality as you: spend more money on fewer people. Plus, that means you get to eat and arent spending your dinner running around saying hi 🙂

    Oh, I love your taste so much. Those pictures are beautiful and just breathtaking. If that’s the wedding you’ll have if you have a small wedding then I’m bummed I’m not on the guestlist.

    To answer your question, I myself had the same choice and went big at 130-145 ppl. But, I was offered a free venue at a residence, so I think I’ll end up with the detail aspect somewhere in between the two. Can you score a free venue, possibly?

    @pinkbean:  those pictures are BEYOND stunning!!!!!!!!! Definitely the smaller wedding if you can!!! Think of the guestlist as quantity vs. quality–sure you can have a bunch of people there, but are they fun? will they cause drama? will uncle sam not want to sit beside cousin mary’s new boyfriend, etc. etc. Having close friends and family who love and support you is all you need!!!
