How Many People To Invite To A Wedding

When it comes to weddings, there are a lot of questions that come up for couples. How much should we spend? What kind of food should we have? And perhaps one of the most important questions: how many people should we invite? This can be a difficult question to answer, but don’t worry, we’re here to help! In this blog post, we will discuss the ideal number of guests to invite to your wedding and give you some tips on how to make the decision.

When it comes to deciding how many people to invite to your wedding, there are a few factors that you should consider. 

Venue size

First, think about the size of your venue. If you’re planning a small intimate wedding, then you probably don’t want to invite 500 guests. On the other hand, if you’re having a grand affair at a large venue, then you may want to invite more people. Another factor to consider is your budget. 


The more guests you have, the more it will cost. You should also think about how many people you actually want at your wedding. If you’re only inviting people because you feel like you have to, then that’s not a good reason. Ultimately, you should invite the people who you want to be there to celebrate your special day with you.

What’s normal, anyway? 

Now that you know some of the things to consider when deciding how many people to invite, let’s talk about what is considered a “normal” number of guests. According to The Knot, the average number of wedding guests is between 150 and 200. Of course, this number can vary depending on the factors we discussed earlier. If you’re having a smaller wedding, then you may only invite 100 guests or less. And if you’re having a larger wedding, then you may invite 300 guests or more.

There are some benefits of a small wedding. A small wedding can be more intimate and personal, and it will also be easier on your budget. When you have a smaller guest list, you can splurge on higher-quality food and drink, or put that extra money towards your honeymoon. Plus, you won’t have to worry about guests being cramped or uncomfortable.

So how many people should you invite to your small wedding? We recommend keeping it under 100 guests. This way, you can still have all the people who are important to you without feeling like the event is too overwhelming. And don’t forget, you can always invite more people to the after-party!

No matter what size wedding you’re planning, it’s important to remember that you can’t please everyone. There will always be some people who are upset that they weren’t invited or that the guest list was too small or too large. 

How to decide who to invite

First, make a list of all the people you would like to invite. This should include family, friends, and co-workers. A good test to see if they should be on the list is to ask yourself if you would invite them to your home for dinner. If the answer is no, then they probably don’t need to be at your wedding. The best thing you can do is to try to make the decision that is best for you and your fiancé. And at the end of the day, remember that it’s your wedding and you can invite whoever you want!

The world’s largest wedding had nearly 100,000 guests! While that may be an extreme example, it just goes to show that there is no “right” number of people to invite to a wedding. It all depends on the couple and what they want for their big day. So, if you’re still trying to decide how many people to invite, take a deep breath and relax. You’ve got this! And if all else fails, you can always elope!
