I’m secretly hoping like 10 people can’t come. Is that mean? The list just spun out of control and a what I hoped would be 80 is now 158! Ai Yai Yai. It could of easily gone higher. I’ve been sending the invites out little by little and I already have 28 guest confirmed and 2 declined.
How many have confirmed or declined for everyone out there?

I just sent mine out on Friday! Isn’t it such a relief that the invites are done?!?! Oringially I only wanted t invite 150 – MAX – with the hopes of 120 coming. Our final count was 198 (?!?!?!?!) and I am crossing my fingers that at least 40 people (hopefully more!) decline. SO DON’T FEEL BAD!!! hahahaaa I already know of 10 that absolutely won’t be coming so I guess its not too bad.

Oh no i totally understand.
we invited 155, our venue seats 120, and i really only want about 100.
right now we are at 82 Yes, 30 No, and 43 outstanding RSVPs.
so even if we have EVERYONE outstanding say yes, its still only 125… which thankfully i know they wont all say yes.
best part? i think we will get our magic number of 100 or right near it. 🙂

Our venue can only hold 170 inside and then we would have to rent out the tent outside for extra $$ to hold any additional people. but I don’t want to have to stick guests outside – how weird would that be?! I’d rather stick myself out there if that was the case!

We invited 215
We have 132 coming
Not all of those people sent back their RSVP cards though!! We might have about 5-7 more people, but we will see! So about 80 declined. Not too shabby! Our venue only holds 150 so this was perfect for us!!!

We invited 140 and we ended up with a little under 90 guests. I was actually a little surprised because this was a local wedding for 95% of our guests. It was on a holiday weekend, but I did sent out STD’s. It turned out well though 🙂

We invited 225ish but only about 180 were able to come. My family is huge and DH family is mostly out of town. It helped that our wedding was “off season” and the out of town family was older worried about travel in snow (in March….don’t get me started!)
