    I think over 200 is large. I only had 80 people and generally referred to that as a small wedding.

    I kept telling people we were having around 200 people and people kept saying “omg thats huge” I was like no it’s not it’s only family lol but I have been doing my guest counts and its actually under 150 hahaha I totally miscalculated so I guess 200 is a BIG wedding.

    For me, anything over 100 would be a large wedding. We are keeping our guest list to 50 and that is big enough for us.

    I think anything under 100 is small

    100-175 is medium

    +175 is large

    +300 is insane LOL – I just don’t know how those brides do it!

    200 plus I would call large. Under a hundred is called small. Somewhere in between in is pretty usual. At least that’s my feelings.

    My sister had 700 people at her wedding…

    Seriously, we are aiming for 125-150, and I consider that to be quite a small wedding.

    To me, more than 150 is large. I originally wanted to stay at 150 or under, but our guest list is now at 197. Oh well…

    @plantains: wowzers!! How did they all fit into one building?! Undecided

    @plantains: 700?? I couldn’t come up with that many people if I tried really hard. Lol. Wow.

    I consider 175+ to be large 🙂

    We had an overflow tent set up outside the banquet hall. She is the first child in our family so it is typical to see that with a lot of Nigerian weddings. It happens with Indian wedding a lot as well. A large number of the guests were business associates that my parents had to invite.

    I went to a wedding last month that had 54 tables of 10.  That was a ‘freakin’ HUGE’ wedding.

    Large to me is 250+

    Medium is 150-250

    Small is up to 150.

    We are expecting just a smidge over 150 – and I’m telling people (and feel like) it’s a small wedding.

    My best friend is a full-blooded Greek girl and she had a 425 person wedding. She says envies my ‘much more manageable’ 235 person guest list, lol. So I really think large depends on the culture you come from, but anything over 200 seems huge to me.

    I think anything larger than your own wedding (or imaginary wedding) is “large” to most people. My wedding is only 50ish, which my parents think is huge (they got married in a tiny ceremony with like, two witnesses). But I tend to think of anything over 100 as ‘holy crap that’s huge!’ just because it’s way bigger than mine.
