    Medium? I have seen people saying they had 200-300 people. We invited around 120 people so still fairly large.

    Something on the medium size. I want to be able to talk to everyone who attends (and KNOW everyone who's attending).

    Medium. 100-ish. If we had the money, I would've liked that number to be doubled

    I would have loved to keep it small and intimate, but I have a big family. I am currently at 155 and still we are still adding, I am guessing the final number will be close to 200.

    I thought I was going to have a small guest list but as I am going I have come to realize it may be bigger than I thought because I'm already at 70 people and that ius just the immediate people that I KNOW r going to be there so I'm figuring probably between 100 and 150 people

    We'd love to go small, and we started with the idea of a barbecue in our backyard, but because of our large families, our wedding has now outgrown our backyard!

    Compared to the numbers seen so far on this blog, ours is ginormous .. 400-500 people expected. Which is not too crazy for a Sri Lankan wedding which can sometimes go up to 600-700 guests.

    I tried really hard to keep it small, I really really did lol. Thank Goodness the room that we are in can only hold 180 or else it would be bigger much bigger! I have the option to change rooms, but the room we picked has a separate terrace area and it will keep our wedding a little more private and separate from any other wedding that may be there.
