Did you have a small wedding?

I am having a small wedding with about 75 to 100 people and I was wondering if there were any others out there who had small weddings too. I'm hoping I'm not weird! I just want it to be more personal with our closest family and friends.

    Definately not weird! I'm looking at that same range!

    Hi! I'm planning to have right around 100 and sticking to family and close friends. Just like you and your FH, we wanted to keep things more personal. Smaller guest list means more $ for personalized touches.

    I think that's actually more towards a medium size wedding. I'm having about 80-90 people and was thinking that was quite a lot. I want to make sure the most important people to us are there. I love the small intimate wedding idea.

    We’re only inviting 75, but I think about 55 or so will come. Especially since it’s kind of far from where we all live. It’s not weird at all. We wanted it to be more intimate. Plus it helps with the cost of things.

    We're inviting 80 people or so and to me that's plenty. It includes all our close family and friends and that's all that matters.

    Not weird at all! Ours is only 70 people! And to me that was a lot. My preference would have been 40-50

    We're having around that many and I'm an introvert so that doesn't feel small at all! 😂

    It isn’t weird at all, we’re still working on the list, but we don’t think we are inviting more than 70 people.

    I don't think 75+ is "small" at all. I personally don't think it's a small wedding unless it's under 50 people. I've been to weddings with 75 & 100 guests and they have been fine!

    I totally understand that! I'm an introvert as well so most of it is family 😅 I just see these crazy weddings with 250+ people and think that's the norm!

    Haha! Oh man I could not do that! My original goal was 75 tops but we're probably looking at something more along the lines of 90-100. That's the max I'd want.

    I’m from a small town in MT and that’s a decent sized wedding to me! I’m having a wedding with only 15-20 people so I’m definitely in the extra small category 😂

    I don’t think that’s small. I’m having the same amount.

    I had 75. It was perfect. Not too many people. Just those close to us.

    That's hardly a small wedding. Small would be under 40 or so. What you are planning is very normal.

    Not strange at all. We are only inviting 90-100 people

    We’re inviting about 40. 75-100 would be completely overwhelming to me.
