Every time someone asks me how many people we are inviting to our wedding I get jaws dropping. I know it is huge, but come on it can’t be like the biggest wedding ever!
So how many did you invite/will you invite?
My Prelim guest list was 480… Should be down to 450-460 now.
Any other big wedding brides out there?

Mine should be around 240. Your wedding is huge! Also you should add the option for fewer than 75 guests

Holy crap! That’s a HUGE wedding, I wouldn’t even know how to deal with a wedding that large.
I cannot vote because my wedding will have no more than 60 guests.

35 guests. I wouldn’t want a big wedding where I couldn’t interact with everyone.

I’ve been panicking over SO’s assertion we’ll probably have around the 350 range… cannot IMAGINE the amount you’re having!

@jenilynevette: Added your option at the bottom! Didn’t work the first time!

Most of my family’s weddings have been in the 300-500 people range… mine is just 200ish invited, 170 attending. It’s small for my family but a lot of people have been “oh, so a really big wedding then!?” haha.

Omg.. That’s like a county in my opinion!

I wasn’t sure which option to choose, since I technically invited 158 but I only expect maybe 120 to attend. I put less than 150. We could have easily invited a lot more, and we very badly wanted to, but that’s a lot of mouths to feed and champagne flutes to fill for our budget 😛

We are inviting about 120, but expecting closer to 90-100. I wanted a manageable size where I could still interact with guests. I went to a wedding once where there were 300+ people and I never even got to tell the bride and groom congratulations. Sure, some parts were fun, but it didn’t have a very personal feel to me. So we opted for smaller.

25 including 5 children and ourselves…

30 people, including ourselves. We only wanted our closest friends and immediate family members.

Our preliminary list is 160, it may get a little bigger but we are more than a year out. I want to end up with around 130 at the wedding, maybe less!
