How many guests? POLL

FI thinks our guest list is huge (about 240) but I think it's about normal.  How many people are you inviting?

    We have to guarantee 175 and we don't want more than 200 so we are inviting 215 I am hoping we get closer to 180.

    Around 125. We really wanted to keep our wedding as intimate as possible without excluding a lot of people. My family is super small, so that helped in accomplishing that :)

    Unfortunately we were at about 150 with family only!  We're inviting about 240 but hoping for 215 or less.

    Started off at 125 people but guest list has grown to 183, hoping we will have about 150.
  • edited December 2011
    Our guest list ended up being 215 people invited BUT a lot of these ppl are FI's family and they are very elderly and live across the country. So we know they arent coming, but wanted to invite just in case. We are expecting 150, but Id be happy w/ less
  • edited December 2011
    FI is Arab and apparently they have big weddings. On his side alone they're having at least 300. So minimum for us is 400 guests................................... yes, we've had PLENTY of arguments about this one!

    We're inviting 220, and guaranteed 175. We invited everyone with a guest, so kind of hoping most of our single friends won't bring their "and guest"

    Ours wedding is going to be a small wedding.  We are planning to have 80 people.  We invited 84 so far.  But I am not worried about the 80/20 rule because we selected people who are really close to us.  I think all of them will participate of our wedding. Anyway we have to guarantee 60 people for the venue, so we are okay.

    When venue shopping our list was at 125, ended up inviting exactly 175.  Now I'm worried about fitting everyone comfortably into the room which fits 160 max...argh!  It sounds mean but I'm definitely hoping for a lot more no's (we don't have a minimum to meet).

  • edited December 2011
    Our price is based on 125 and we are hoping to have no more than 130.  We are inviting 167, but already know some people who won't be coming that we "HAVE" to invite (according to inlaws).  So, praying that 130 is the final number.

    Our guest list is up to 200 right now. Our venue requires a minimum of 175 so we want to make sure to make the count. It is very possible that our guest list will grow but we are definitely hoping to keep it near 200.
