Just curious … how many people did you invite to your non-destination wedding and how many people acceptted your invitation. Did you have no shows to your wedding? I’m starting to get nervous that we will have off the chart acceptance.

We invited 81, expected 60, and ended up with 45. Part of the issue was 3 of DH’s friends happened to move across the country and couldn’t come, so counting their SOs that’s 6 people right there that we would have expected to come who couldn’t. We did not have any no-shows but did have people who we had to harrass for RSVPs.

we invited 110 people, expected 100, and 97 said yes. the only people who said no were people who we knew were not able to go. :/ we had heard rumors of people who had everyone say “yes” and we really hoped that was not us, because we were packed to capacity at our venue. :/ oh we did have 2 no-shows.

we invited 70, expected around 50 ended up having 61 guests. Of the 9 that didn’t come 3 were no-shows. They were all suppose to be seated at seperate tables so they all still looked full, luckily haha.

We sent out 137 invitations, but I cannot remember the exact number that it totaled. I know we were over 300, and we hope to only have about 250-275. Our room holds 300, but I think that is just tables and not with a band/dance floor and everything else.
So far, we have had 5 people decline, and about 50-55 accepts back. RSVP date is Spetember 19.

331 invited, 220 accept in some capacity or another (not all via RSVP) 3 at the last minute couldn’t show up (for very ligimate reasons) and two people did come to the wedding and part of reception but skipped dinner to drop in on another wedding that was happening the same day. We also had two no shows who we thought would be there. We had also 7 extra people we weren’t expecting who didn’t RSVP. Kind of funny that the numbers kind of evened out with how it happened.

soontobemrs.h: We invited 208 people. We had 198 accept, 2 no-shows, and 4 guests show up who my Darling Husband invited the day before (?!). So 200 guests total. I was incredibly surprised how many people RSVP’d yes – we had over 60 Out of Town guests.
