    Me and Fiance – 2

    Our parents – 4

    Grandparents – 4

    BMs & guests – 10

    GMs & guests – 6

    Readers & guests – 4

    Total: 30 (oops I voted 31-40 in the poll before counting!)

    Almost our entire guest list is Out of Town and it’s not customary in my circle to invite them all to the rehearsal dinner, just immediate family, wedding party and their dates.

    We are doing a special rehearsal dinner/overnight party the night before our wedding as our venue is also a mansion. We will have about 30 people total to have dinner and spend the night in the suites.

    Whoever has 90+ people, I salute you!

    We’re not sure if we’ll be having a rehersal dinner, but considering 21 (including us) are family/wedding party members out of our 27 total I will probably invite the whole wedding guest list to the rehersal dinner. I’d feel bad saying “Sorry, you’re not family or in the wedding party” to the three couples that would be left out, one of which would be flying across the country for the wedding.

    Around 25 people are attending ours. We’re having it in a very small restaurant that can only hold 35 people, so we rented the entire place to ourselves haha!

    We invited everyone because our wedding was basically a destination wedding.

    I think we had about 98 at the wedding and probably about 88 at the rehearsal dinner. It was really great to just have extra time with all our guests.

    We have 45 invited, but it is a cocktail party with heavy ap’s at my parents, very near the church.  It is family, bridal party and those who have been especially involved/helpful in the process.
