    Right. This is for all married men and women members out there.

    It is time for my partner and I to start making guest lists. 60 for the day and 100 for the evening.

    We obviously can't invite everyone we'd like (funds permitting) so do any members have any advice, perhaps based on their own wedding, to help eliminate those who won't unfortunately be receiving an invite? family members will account for most of the day guests and the evening will be made up of those at the day's ceremony and close friends added to the 60 to make the 100 for the evening. But who to choose? how to choose?

    Just invite the ones that care for you both, and bring gifts or vouchers that you want.

    Invite your closest friends. These are the people added to your day guests that make you happy. Like every occasion in life, you cant please everyone, but this is your special day. :) x

    Family first, (both sets of parents will advise strongly), then friends. I don't know if you are restricted by the venue size, so does it matter if you go over the 100...? If not, invite as many as will make a great day better.
    We had about 120 at ours, (Stevenson had just invented The Rocket), as far as I can remember.
    I found that Tequila helped greatly. You don't feel drunk but, you are definitely relaxed enough not to give two hoots if you have offended anyone by not inviting them....!

    If we go over the 100 we are charged per extra head so can't see this being an option.

    Then there's the partners of our friends, would it be considered rude not to invite them? perhaps if we did then it would make the selection process more ruthless.

    any further thoughts?

    thanks for all your contributions ladies and gentlemen.

    You can't really go splitting up a pair if they have been an item for a while but, there will probably be a few that will enjoy and make the most, of a night of drunken freedom.
    Invite's are usually + One.

    Just invite those who drive an Audi.

    The advice I was given is not to invite anyone who's partner is hot, because as its a wedding they will look their best, and may outshine either the bride or groom, which will pee them off a bit.

    Doesn't matter what you do when it comes to weddings cause someone always seems to get ****** off. do what makes you both happy and fudge everyones opinions.

    No help at all but count yourself lucky you aint having an Indian wedding, we had a 'small' Indian wedding with about 200 guests and a reception the next day with about 350!!

    We just invited friends and family that would be interested in the wedding and for the reception we called a few more friends and family that would prefer a pi55 up as opposed to sitting quietly watching us get married.

    If i could do it again, it would be immediate and close family, then friends and keep it at that.

    In similar situation myself. Like Nilz said we looking to invite the people who we think would enjoy being there, which kinda singles out alot of the the family lol.

    Its your day so just invite who you want and enjoy it. If people want to have a dig about why they weren't invited the maybe they should think why they werent invited in the first place.

    Well thats what I think mate. Hope you have a great day.

    I'm having a family dilema, I love my aunty but hate my cousins, so I want to invite my aunt to the wedding and my cousins to the evening. Of course the family are saying this is unfair, however I don't want them to be there when I get married and I wouldn't buy them a happy meal, never mind a 3 course meal!!!

    Had the same issue ourselves this time last year

    I have quite a lot of cousins, and to invite them all to the day reception it would have put us way out of our budget, so we just invited everyone to the night reception and had close/immidiate family and good friends at the day reception/ceremony

    Worked out fine, one cousin had a moan but once explained they were ok with it, at the end of the day its YOUR wedding and YOUR paying for it, don't be pressured into spending any more cash than you have to, weddings are expensive enough to start with

    Oh and good luck !, little tip : don't get coco bongo'd before 9.00pm, end up in bed throwing up everywhere whilst all your guests are enjoying your food and drink (exactly what i did, hanging out my **** for the week following) haha

    We had exactly the same numbers last year, we invited cousins but no partners and everyone understood... it's an expensive day and we had the excuse of a small venue.

    My wife and I started off with people we're both friends with them just close friends that we have in our lives.

    At the end of the day it's your day not there's so only have the people you want there. You can't please everyone. I'd rather have two friends than 20 people I just know from the past or work etc.

    Yes, get the brides father to pay for it all. Then you can invite more than 100.
