    Ours is around 25 people as well. We have 4 bridesmaids, 2 groomsmen, bride, groom, parents (4), flower girl, ring bearer, Grooms sister, and then our out of town guests.

    Of the top of my head, I'm only counting 17. I haven't picked anyone for the guest book tables or the cake tables, so it might end up being 20.

    We have 40 unfortunately! but hey, i guess the more the merrier. it's once in a lifetime. i wish it could be more intimate, but that is not how our family and FH friends operate. whatcha gonna do? it could have been worse for me. it could have ballooned to 60-70 ppl and that would have been truly ridiculous. i wish i could get it down to 25- impossible. for me, maybe 30 if a lot of ppl flake.

    With the WP, parents, grandparents, siblings, and significant others ours comes to just shy of 30. I really don't think the actual number matters, as long as you are including everyone who should be there. If you have a larger WP, it's only natural you would have a larger RD, and vice versa.

    There is more People I would love to have there but I don't think I should add them just because the # is high and is about to get higher I just have to pick everyone for the wedding and than that will add a few more people also .

    We have around 50. But...that number includes the following:

    - Bridesmaids and Spouse/Date

    - Groomsmen and Spouse/Date

    - Mothers/Fathers

    - Grandparents

    - Ringbearers

    - Flowergirls

    - Ushers and Spouse/Date

    - Guest Book Attendants and Spouse/Date

    - Program Attendants and Spouse/Date

    - Minister and Spouse

    So it really does add up quickly, but I'm the type of person who would rather have anyone who is going to be a part of the ceremony at the rehearsal/dinner be there and have a clue as to what's going on then show up the day of the wedding and be clueless and not have anyone show them what to do or what's going on.

    WOW, and I thought we had a lot of people! We only have 16 counting me and fh. We only have the bp, parents, and the pastor...we want everyone else to be suprised at the wedding, so we limited it to just those people that are NEEDED at the wedding itself.

    I am nowhere near planning my rehearsal dinner yet, but I just counted and I will probably have to figure around 35 or 40. Holy crap! Thanks for making me realize this now!

    We're inviting everyone. It's a destination wedding, so everyone's out of town. It will probably be close to 100.
