How many people to invite?

Recommended Posts

We invited 37 people but I don't think we will have any more than 25 max. Which is perfect. We want to keep the budget down as much as possible. And we want it to be intimate. We will be having a party when we get back to celebrate. And even that will be simple. But that way we will catch all the rest of the people that are missed. Most people don't get offended when you say it is an intimate wedding our of the country.

Thank you so much for this forum! I am wondering everyday what number of people to invite. I think we will send out 170 invites but plan for 80.

We've invited about 200, mainly because my FI has a gigantic family and you can't invite some without inviting others.  We're estimating about 75 - 100 coming...we're still 7 months out and already have 50 people confirmed with their rooms and flights booked.

When we were planning an at home wedding the guest list was about 200 people.  We did not want that.  We ended up sending out 30 invitations and 26 people are coming.  We got some negative feed back and I got removed from a few facebook pages but dah well.

Your wedding is in 12 months and you've got 26 people booked? Wow, that's pretty extraordinary! :)

We invited 100 and we around 40 that RSVP'd.  We sent many out to family who we know cannot make it but it was suggested we do so to keep everybody happy.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
