If I ever get married, I kind of like the idea of inviting a ton of people to the ceremony and then having a small family dinner. In a way, I also like the idea of having a small ceremony and a small family dinner. It seems silly to cause yourself too much stress for something that is only a beginning, or to get way into debt just when you're starting your life together.

I've been to quite a few weddings and I think the receptions have mostly had 100-200 people. They've all been very nice weddings. I've never been to one where people behaved stupidly or I felt like there were way too many people or whatever.

The less fancy the wedding, the smaller the gift.

That's the beauty. If someone you didn't want there who thinks they belong there (there are people who think that way), you can use the excuse that your numbers were limited, not of your own doing, and if you had been allocated more slots, that person was "definitely in".

This is not adding up...

(1) You are inviting c. 100 people (w/o dates at that)
(2) There are 6,000+ members of the web-based-community known as
(3) Surely you have a few local friends within that "100" number
(4) I feel that many of us will not be invited.

Since the bride apparently gets to choose (is this etiquette?), then I don't want more than like 15 people there. I'd be getting married, not throwing a New Year's Eve party.

CK you got 2 ways of doing this. Factor cost 1st and list your guest list dependant on the max $ you can spend, or think I will worry about shaving the list down and cost cutting later. I did the latter. I drew up a nice list of people I considered good friends, that was a minimum requirement, if they were an aquaintance, they could find something else to do on that date.
Cost per head. I love it. I looked at my list and became the absolute Mrs Scrooge. "are you a $100 a lunch friend?" No? Strike through your name. We settled on the ultimate list of 72 folks. I thought thats good, no hangers on except for the requisite nutbag familiy member you cannot leave off unless you want road kill as an xmas pressie every year for the next 20. Thanks Aunt B for not having a breakdown and seizure at the lack of attention paid to you on the day. You were so well behaved, here's a dog treat for your nutbag mutt Chihuaha.

CK, you and the MT forget numbers. Write the list of people you want there. For every guest you dont invite, its an extra thing you can do on the honeymoon. Because of 2 tight arses who 'coulld not attend' I got to go jetskiiing on my honeymoon for 2 hours instead of the normal 1. In the long run, you will be happy.

So after a tulmultous past 6 days, it has been decided that we're only doing a small, immediate family wedding with one friend each (sorry, not you Bama). So, it appears we are having 28 people invited to the wedding and we are going to have an intimate celebration at a restaurant near the church.

A tired,
