How small is your SMALL wedding?

I would really prefer a super private ceremony with only our closest of close friends and family. Our guest list started out topping off at 75ppl. Looking back at the list, we're thinking of inviting only 50 of those ppl.

How many people are on your small guest list?

    We invited 50, expecting about 40.  We ended up at about 45 IIRC.  The guest list was comprised of our attendants, their spouses, our immediate families, our vendors (photographer and videographers were friends), and a couple of other close relatives.
    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    We invited a little over 200 people. About 125 showed up. On my side we went to second cousins, but H has a big family with tons and tons of cousins, so he didn't go nearly as far.

    When we had planned to do a small wedding, we were inviting 30 people.

    My wedding is small.  13 people including my fiance and I.  :)

    I am invited 50 to the ceremony. I am only expecting about 30, which is fine with me:-) We are having a big reception afterwards. My ceremony venue is small, so there's not much I can do about that...

    We are inviting probably 130 people (mostly as a 'courtesy' for my side, anyway) but are expecting 50-60. This is because my whole family and all my friends live across the country and cannot afford to fly/drive here. And that is fine, but I still wanted them to know they can come.
  • Options
    We wanted 30, invited 60, and ended up with 30.

    If you plan your wedding with short notice on a long weekend, it helps.

    Kept ceremony to family only since our venue is small, probably having 28 there. At home dinner reception is at 45 people now, invited 76 to that (including family).

     We invited 52 and 52 have rsvp'd. It's only a family wedding, We didn't want a party, just a small celebration for family. 
  • Options
    Our guest list is about 68, give or take. Mostly all family so I think the number will stay around there.

    We invited 57, 55 are coming.  I wanted to keep it smaller than that, but FMIL offered to pay for the extras.

    We're inviting around 90. Most are "courtesy" invites of my parents, and if everyone shows up yay, but honestly expecting about 50.
  • Options
    Ours will be about 65, expecting most, if not all, to come..

    I had originally wanted 30-40, but for a bunch of reasons we wound up with a ballroom as our venue, and 30 people would be wierd in that setting. It making my parents happy, anyway - I wasn't going to invite any aunts, uncles, or cousins..

    We are inviting 70 day guests, 10 evening guests so 80 in total

    We are expecting them all to come as it is only close family & very close friends. Fi has a big family so the split is about 70/30

    What are day and evening guests?
    "Trix, it's what they/our parents wanted. Why so judgemental? And why is your wedding date over a year and a half ago? And why do you not have a groom's name? And why have you posted over 12,000 posts? And why do you always say mean things to brides?" palegirl146

    Maybe....I'm still undecided between this one and a similar style with more beading and less stripes, but right now, this one is winning.

    We're having around 50 people. I would have liked it smaller than that, but his family is a lot bigger than mine.
  • Options
    We invited 140 who were mostly distant family members who got an invite out of courtesy/obligation knowing full well they would NOT show up.

    62 are coming, which we were thinking 50ish realistically so it wasn't a bad guess.
