Wedding Guest List: Too Many Wedding Guests for an At-Home Wedding?


We're getting married in the new home we just bought. The wedding will be catered. We expect about 100 wedding guests -- is that too many?


Your guest list depends on the size of your house! If you have a decent-sized backyard, you'll probably be fine. Just remember to consider where you'll seat everyone. You don't have to set up reception tables, but make sure you provide a good amount of indoor and outdoor seating -- you might want to bring in extra folding chairs and tables (and a tent, depending on the season and regional weather). Talk to your caterer about how and where items will be set up -- he or she will probably be able to tell you if you're cutting it close space-wise.
