Maybe 20 less for the reasons you mentioned above…

I wrote a similar post about how our small and intimate wedding was not only how we were keeping the cost of the event down but was going to make the day mean that much more.

No unfamiliar faces.

And, believe it or not, there are immediate family members who we did not invite. 75 was our max. And we stuck to it. It includes our DJ and his wife who are friends, my hairdresser who is a good friend and our immediate family, bridal party and then, a few friends (my fiance is one of 7 children … hard to keep it any smaller than what it is considering he has 17 nieces and nephews!).

I was originally planning a 250 guest count, but now I am down to 75-85. I couldn’t be more relieved or any happier! So glad I made the decision to have an intimate wedding. It will be so worth it in the end.

There is absolutely NOTHING I would change about the number of guests who ended up coming.

Not only did my Favorite Gentleman & I have the luxury of being able to talk to all our guests, everyone who attended was telling me how much fun they had due to the smaller size! No one had to spend extra time waiting in line for food, and no one felt like they were at an impersonal event.

All those things you mentioned were great, but another one is that the smaller a wedding, the LESS folks who were not invited will feel slighted since it’s clear that you’re NOT inviting everyone and their brother.

For some people having a big wedding with countless amount of individuals is everything they hoped for but for me it’s unrealistic for my budget and I would want to invite really close friends and family. Great post!

It was the perfect size because I was able to visit and have actual meaningful conversations with every guest.
