    I couldn’t really check a box because none were quite right.  We will invite all family (immediate, aunts, uncles, cousins, and some of my parents cousins who they remain in touch with), close friends, and family friends.  Our count is currently 220 but over 100 is family.

    If an intimate wedding is what you desire, then I would include immediate family and first-tier relatives, as well as close friends.  People should be understanding of your choice in having a smaller event. If they aren’t supportive, then they truly don’t know you well and it’s best that they aren’t there anyway.

    Parents and siblings only. The rest just got too complicated.

    Somewhere in between options 2 and 3, actually (I voted for #3).  We invited all family that was first cousins or closer, our parents’ closests friends, and most people in our circle of friends (some of whom we aren’t really close to, but it’s a big group of friends and we all go to each other’s events).

    We were on a tight budget and the best way we found to keep the bottom line from getting out of control was to keep a lid on the guest list.  We invited only those very close to us; parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, close friends and close family friends.  This kept our number around 100. 

    I think it’s a choice that everyone has to make for themselves.  Some people really picture a big affair, others are more comfortable with something smaller.  I think it’s whatever you like and can afford. 🙂

    The majority of those that we invited are family members. We were lucky enough to invite our closest friends as well. I did invite some co-workers but we are all friends so I was comfy enough to include them as well.
