Couples Are Inviting Fewer Guests Instead of throwing big parties, many couples choose to shorten the guest list and invite family and friends closest to them and their parents. This results in a more personalized feel for your wedding and allows you to interact with guests on a more intimate level.

Perhaps the final decision should be based on the couple's spending limit, their tastes and the satisfaction of the guests.
