    I guess it would be considered a "big wedding", we have invited 120 people.

    We started with 160 guests. Then COVID hit, we postponed, and decided to reimagine our wedding. So we cut the list to 60. Then delta hit, we postponed again, and now we are thinking of cutting it down to 40.

    I definitely understand. We started off small at 80 and haven’t made decisions to cut back yet!

    Our minimony last October was small, we had 35 guests. We are having our reception this October with 95 invited so I'm not sure if that is considered big or small.

    Our wedding guest list consists of about 60 people, so I'd say small. I had 300 guests at my 1st wedding thanks to my mother, but she's not invited to or involved in this one.

    Our wedding is big. We have 205 on the guest list, but are expecting around 150-160 to show up.

    We’re having a small wedding. When we were at the initial stages of planning, I said to my fiancé to be on the safe side with covid we should go small. So our max is 84 people, no children. So far only 36 has rsvp’ed.

    I'm honestly not sure, it will probably feel like a lot of people and a big wedding the day of with trying to go around and talk with everyone.

    Hi ! In terms of planning and organising I would say that having up to 30 people would be a small wedding for me. Cause I would just do a restaurant after the ceremony I think, no dancing, DJ or special flowers... For my 50 guests we had it all - a venue, a party, and all... So maybe 50 is a small wedding for most of the people, but I would have the same organisation for 50 and 150, but surely a different one for 20...

    Assuming there will be no COVID restrictions at the time of our wedding (who knows at this point) we will be having an average to big sized wedding. 200 invited and expecting about 160 to attend. I think big is over 200, just based on the weddings I've been to, and small would be under 100. My FH has a very large family so that's where my opinions on sizes may differ from most.

    Invited 160, expect around 130-150. I think its a medium size wedding, not necessarily big but then again I see "big" as over 175 so it all depends.
