@Lfata:  If something really good happened, like if you got pregnant, who would you call?  After that, who would you include in a group email, then after that, who would find out and wish you well on FB?

Not scientific, but helps puts people into perspective.

If you and your Fiance both haven’t met these people then cut them out first. If they don’t know both of you then they aren’t that big of a deal in your life.

First of all 150 is not a small wedding. If you haven’t talked to them in a few years don’t invite them. If they don’t care if they miss it, don’t invite them. If they don’t know both you and your Fiance don’t invite them

We only had close family and friends for ours. Anybody, family or friend, who we hadn’t seen or spoken to in years (Facebook did not count) got left off the list.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: Great technique.


@Lfata: we’re sticking to immediate family (first aunts, uncles and cousins) and really close friends and super important (almost family) family friends. Our final count was 273 though HUGE family.

Birthday’s are very important to me, so I cut everyone who’s b’day I do not celebrate or people I wouldn’t wish happy birthday.  Next, I cut anyone that hadn’t met Darling Husband.  We’d been dating for almost 4 years at the time we were deciding and I figured if they hadn’t met him, they get cut.

I will say that cutting my guest list is one of my big wedding regrets.  I really wish I had invited more people (especially with the no’s we ended up receiving) – which was surprising, because I expected everyone to be able to make it.

We’re having 49 people plus us. It started with immediate family – grandparents, parents, siblings, nieces. Then we added in my bridal party (the groomsmen are all my FI’s brothers), everyone’s partners, and five mutual friends who are we are close to and had already extended invitations to. Then we threw in a few extra guests each, who were friends we really wanted to be there, and that was that.

I had less than 40 people at my wedding. I basically decided right away that I only wanted family and really close friends.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: I agree with this. Its a pretty good way of getting perspective on your groups 🙂
