    BIG. We have: 4 bridesmaids, 4 groomsmen, 2 jr.bridesmaids, 2 jr.groomsmen, 2 flower girls, and are including all parents and grandparent in the procession. I'll have my dad and brother walk me down the aisle. And, we have approx. 172 final guest count. Although, in all honesty I wish we would of kept our bridal party smaller, but too late now, lol.

    I can’t believe anything under 200 is considered big 😭 I think 100-200 has its own “average” category. Mine will be BIG: inviting 350 and hoping that 300 or less RSVP 😜

    Big! We have 7 bridesmaids, 7 groomsmen, 1 ring bearer, and 5 flower grandmas. Total guest count will be around the 200 mark. I was hoping for a bit smaller, but it is what it is!

    I guess our wedding would be considered big. We have 171 guests invited not including my fiancé and I. I am an only child and my fiancé is the oldest child so our parents are going all out without breaking the bank.

    I think average? Guest list is about 100 (though final count will likely be less, plenty of OOT guests). As far as bridal party, it has gotten rather large, 5 bridesmaids, 2 jr bridesmaids, 6 groomsmen, 2 flower girls and a ring bearer!
