We are.  It’s an intimate backyard wedding with approximately 50-60 guests.  =)

We are having a small wedding with 30-35 people max.  We like to keep things simple.  It wouldn’t be us to have a big wedding.  Plus, it’s much cheaper this way.

@txbella:  We’re having a small wedding. We invited 75, but are only expecting 15-20 to attend–this is due partially to the fact that our guests have to cruise with us since we’re being married at sea.

Well, it’s just going to be just us. So I would say yes it’s a small wedding!

We are also doing a small wedding, Small Church and a Backyard reception.  Im only doing it because I want it to be people I actually care about.

  • Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast

We had 32 people, including us, and it was lovely. We hosted everything at a gorgeous bed and breakfast that had its own attached restaurant. It was the perfect sized venue for our group, and it felt very homey and inviting.

I had a Destination Wedding with 17 people total and it rocked! Small, intimate weddings are the best 🙂

@txbella:  We kind of did it based on circles starting with our parents and working outward (Grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins and then our small handful of friends).The only thing we were choosy about was the cousins because my cousins all live in the same geographic region and are all between the age of 18-29 and FI’s are all over the place and between the ages of 8-55.

In the end we are expecting 3 parents, 1 grandparent, 5 siblings and 2 of their children (the only kids, btw!), 3 aunts and uncles, 4 cousins and maybe 2 friends.

Miss Dragon did a really well written blog article on the topic of small wedding guest lists and the fun that they are.

Ours was small, around 60 people. For venue, we chose a local, really rustic restaurant with a nice function space upstairs. It was great for a group our size and it all worked out really nicely.

We are!  I think we’ll have about 60 people attend (I’m still waiting for RSVPs).

Small too, for us: our total head count is 54, and that includes ourselves and our preacherman (our officiant is a friend’s dad, so I keep hearing “Son of a Preacherman” in my head everytime I think of him.) So, 51 guests. Not as small as I originally would have wanted, but Groom-go-be’s immediate family is sizeable.
