80% of the guests are my fiance's family. Other than my parents and siblings the rest of my family is in England and can't make it. Then for our friends it's about an equal amount each. But overall his part of the guest list is larger.
My finance has the most numbers.hes from a big family and extended family so..I think he was saying his mom has 12 brothers n sister
A good 70% are on his side. My family and close friends mostly live in Europe. When he proposed to me, we had the engagement party there, where he was literally alone because nobody could make it from Canada at such a short notice. So, it was only fair to have the wedding in Alberta, where he is from. Of course this means that most of my close friends won’t be able to make it, but I am more than glad to compromise, so that this time he will be around all the people that love him!
We have a 110 guest list. I have a large family to begin with but my parents who have been split up for about 10 years now have they significant others as well as step brother/sister. I think under 20 people are his. Lol
It's really even. I have two more family members on the list, but we expect more of his family to actually come because they're closer. And I have a few more friends (under five, although it's to give an exact number given that there are common friends), but that's only because more of my friends are in relationships.
My side is definitely outnumbered. I was really particular with who I invited from my extended family because I'm not close with most of them. Of our 150 guest list, probably 90 are my FH's family or family friends and then my family/friends are about 20. Rest are mutual friends.
My FH has a big Italian family and I only have one side of my family here in Canada, so of our 135 guests, about 83 are his and 52 (a few a which are out of town and probably won't come) are mine. He wants to seperate the sides for the ceremony, but I'm worried my side will look barren if we seperate them!
He is inviting more people for sure. He has a bigger family and is close with most of them. I'm not really close to my family at all to the point where I'm not even sure if my own father will come to my wedding. It's also my second wedding so I really didn't want many people on my side. Just close family and friends.
My fiance doesn't really have any family here so he's just inviting friends from his side and I have a huge family and even after trimming it down to just immediate family and friends our wedding the ratio is 4:1 >.<'
My FH has way more guests on his side. All of our family has to come over all the way from Europe, but I (as well as my parents) am expecting that not many will come. There aren't any other family members that moved away from the Netherlands. Within my FHs family it's a lot more common and they all visit each other and are a lot closer than my family is. His family is also bigger than mine.
