The Duke and Duchess of Sussex invited around 600 guests to attend their Saturday wedding at St. George's Chapel at  Windsor Castle while the two had also invited  1,200 people to gather outside the chapel to enjoy the ceremony.

Kensington Palace announced in a statement in March that Harry and Meghan invited 2,640 people into the Windsor grounds to welcome them on their arrivals. The statement read:

They want their Wedding Day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too. 

It continued,

This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters and values of the Bride and Groom.

The attendees outside the chapel were presented commemorative gift bags, inscribed with the couple's initials, full of goodies like a gold wrapped chocolate coin with the pair's initials. The Royal gift also included a water bottle, shortbread as well as a coupon to a local store.
