What if your future Fiance has 100 or more relatives??

Or, what if you meet someone in 6 months, date for a year, and it doesn’t work out and you have to meet someone else??

Our wedding was very small, only a dozen guests! Our vow renewal will be a tad bigger, about 30 guests.

We’re looking at a 20-25 person wedding. Including us, our immediate family and then some close friends.

We’re definitely shooting for less than 20 at our Destination Wedding.  :o)

We’re having 48 guests, we invted 65 but a lot lived in different places around the country and couldn’t make it. (which was fine with me). I did not like the idea of having a ton of people we don’t talk to sitting there staring at us while we exchanged vows. That’s really personal to me. I think a plus of having a small guest list, besides saving money, is that it feels very intimate and special.

We are eloping and then having a mostly family reception and 2nd ceremony of 20-25 people a couple weeks later. Everyone will be dressed up in Sunday best, but beyond that it’s pretty casual. It’s at my Dad’s house and we’re going minimal on decorations and such. Our personal touch is that we will be cooking all of our favorite foods and desserts and sharing that with the family!

We’re having about 45-50 guests (based on our preliminary guests list).

I only want our immediate families (I have 2 sisters, he has one sister), their families, and a really good friends.  I won’t be invinting any cousins, aunts, uncles.  For one, it’s going to be a plane ride for everyone.  No one lives near us.  I love my Grammie but she would not get on a plane ever.

I will be taking them white water rafting the day after.  Two of my friends can guide, and I can guide the rafts as well.  

Nothing individually personalized.

We’ll have 15 total & all family. So we’re trying to incorporate everyone in the ceremony somehow and/or give them little things to do like hold the rings, etc. I’m undecided between a sand ceremony, a ring warming & a flower ceremony to involove everyone….
