  • poll: So who did you invite?

    Just the immediate family

    Close family and close friends

    Most family and most friends

    Most family, all friends, close co-workers

    All family, friends, coworkers, semi-recent acquaintances who seem like potential friends

    Basically everyone we could think of XD

    Just friends

    Nobody ;D

    We’re inviting over 250 people. I have a big extended family, we are inviting all of our friends and my FI’s coworkers are also his friends because of the army. Large bunch, but everyone who is invited I consider to be close to us

    I voted for all family, friends etc. Only because there wasn’t an ‘all family, some friends’ option. We will (depending on budget) be inviting all family, and our limited circle of friends 🙂

    @yanamari:  Yeah we will only be inviting close family, aunts, 1st cousins, etc. No 3rd cousins lol. Fiance has a BIG family.

    My parents, DH and I invited just close family and friends.  DH’s parents invited I think anyone they may have ever met in their lives.   A few times they pondered who a certain person on the list was.  DH and I knew this wasn’t a fight we were going to win so we just told them if they’re going to do that, to forget my parents paying for the whole do as originally planned and that everyone can pay for their own guests.

    76 people = 2 tables of family, 4 tables of friends, 1 table of wedding party. Each table sat 8-12 and some tables were at exactly 8. Way more friends than family but we are close with a lot of our friends.

    My guest list is 170 — of that, I think 120 is family (aunts, uncles, cousins – nobody more distantly related than first cousins).  About 30 more are family friends of our parents, and the last 20 are our friends.  We had to seriously cut back friends to accomodate family.
