    Our guest list is almost entirely family, with a few friends/coworkers sprinkled in. We originally had almost 150 but were able to cut down to 80 Smiley smile

    We’re inviting 60 people (the max for the ceremony location). Mostly my family and both of our friends.

    We are having a destination wedding and only invited 75 people. We are expecting about 50 to make it and it consists of mostly family and close friends!

    We mainly have family invited and a few friends. I'm guessing we will have about 150 invited but expecting around 130 from what I am hearing from everyone.

    Our guest list is more friends than family, but a lot of these friends are now family to us. We made our original list just writing down everyone we could think of and have been able to cut it down to around 200. We still have to sit down and really look it over and make cuts where needed but the majority of these are the must have people.

    I would have been fine with a smaller list but FH's family knows a lot of people SO we're looking at 200ish. We have 246 invites, many of whom live out of state.

    We’re inviting 65 of our family and friends. But 90% of the list is our friends. FH and I host about 3-4 events/parties at our house each year. So we invite our close family and friends. Given that, it was simple to create our guest list. For our wedding we definitely weren’t inviting any “just because” guests who we don’t regularly talk to, who we don’t see and who we don’t have a relationship with. We only wanted people from our core circles to share this moment with us.

    We have 125 guest invited. I would say it's about 85% family and 15% friends.

    So. Many. People! My FH comes from a huge family, so his family side of the guest list is the same amount of my family, friends, and coworkers combined. I'm crossing my fingers that more than a few of our guests can't make it. Haha.

    We did not want too many people there, but our guest list turned out to be much longer than we thought, so now we invited around 120 people (the max that our venue could hold).

    Mainly comprised of my family and some of his friends. That's the way it's sort of going and we're okay with that.
