    110 is our max for the venue, so that’s what we’ll invite and anticipate 90-100 since our venue is local to almost everyone!

    We’re inviting 30, not expecting many declines, but probably a few. A simple, intimate ceremony & reception.

    I wanted something super intimate with immediate family and close friends, but we ended up with a guest list of 80.

    I was firm with 100 being the max but I think we’re at 120 right now and pretty close to the final list.

    My fiance comes from a big catholic family, and we were both Greek in college. So between the two of us we have lots of friends and family. We also allowed all of our friends a plus one, so that did not help, haha. We both have a lot of family who live far away and many we don't expect to come due to picking a holiday for our date, so that contributes to the huge gap between the two figures.

    No more than 100. Most are my family. FH's family lives in Florida and 3 can't travel for health reasons, he doesn't have many friends.

    Between 90 and 100 depending on what other deals we can manage to get.

    We started at 70. Then 80. The more I can save in other areas, the more guests we can invite. Right now, we have 93. I am cutting it off at 100 personally because I wanted an intimate experience.
