@patches:  The cool thing about weddings is you get to decide for yourself. If you can spare the extra invites, the more the merrier! But if you’re on a budget, it’s not a big deal to leave out adult children of the families you want to come.

This is how we handled it.  We made a “dream” list off all the people we’d invite if money/space was no object.  Then started slashing due to real life constraints and the fact that I didn’t want to spend 200 bucks to invite my mom’s friends kids that I haven’t seen in ten years and their husbands to my wedding.

Well for me personally, due to budget and space constraints, we are only extending invites to our nearest and dearest, and only giving +1’s to a few people (couples that are engaged, married, living together etc, or people who would not know anybody and are coming from far away)

We figured out the number we wanted (100), which meant 25 people for FI’s family, my family, FI’s friends, and my friends. Fiance and I went over on our lists, but it was a great start.

Have you figured out your budget/venue limitations yet? That can make a huge difference.

@patches:  We did give plus 1 to everyone but we then retracted and only giving plus 1s to social units. our invites aren’t mailed so no one knows we changed our minds.
