300 to the Korean wedding – and 200 of those are coworkers we MUST invite! It’s horrible!  100 to the Canadian wedding (and only 5 are double invites to the Canadian and Korean weddings).  So that means 400 in total.

We’re still working on ours but so far we’re sending about 125 invites. Most of those are people of families of 4 with only about 30single people who are invited to bring a guest. We’re welcoming a big bash. We like people. ๐Ÿ™‚ All of our families are invited, but we doubt most will come as they all live in another state.

Is 200 considered big? My mom has told me that anything over 100 is big but I think her opinions are outdated ๐Ÿ™‚

We started with 450, I refused to invite more than 350 (ha!), and we have about 250 coming!

wow you guys are having some HUGE weddings.

We originally said 80 which will run us 11,000 just for the ceremony and reception including food and open bar (no decorations)

but it’s so hard to keep it that small!

It’s awkward when i run into people and they bring up the wedding, i feel bad about how many people we can’t invite ๐Ÿ™

Smallish destination wedding here (60 ppl) but hometown reception two weeks later will be much larger (+/-250).  I feel very fortunate that my parents wanted to host a second reception for us.  We love to party!!!

Our guest list is currently at 320! So much for staying around the 250 mark!! But a lot of our guests are out of state, so we’re pretty much planning on around the 200-250 mark.
