I think anything over 200 is large. But it probably depends on where you live.

Interesting stats! Especially the one with only 17% of bride’s parents paying for everything. Finally, things are changing.

I say medium sized wedding. We’re having close to 300 if not more so we’ll be a large wedding!!

I say under 100 is small, 100-200 is medium, and over 200 is large.

I think perception is definitely culturally based. My family is from the western part of Africa.

I’m planning on not having any more than 225 (including wedding crashers) and that’s considered to be on the smaller side of weddings. 300 people is considered average.

i think it depends on where you come from and your family…

we’re having a large wedding at 375-400. some would say that’s ridiculous…to me under 150 is a small wedding, but probably the perfect size

We are having about 220-250 (more if my FI’s dad gets his way… less if i get my way haha)..

I consider anything over 300 to be large.. and yes, 400+ is ridiculous haha!
