We had about 30% of our guests show up.  There were probably about 20% that we knew for sure wouldn’t come, so about 50% that we didn’t expect to decline.

When I was making our guestlist, I did it on a spreadsheet, and I added a column for the liklihood that they’ll come – so I had high, mid and low, and just estimated based on what I know of peoples’ location, finances, etc.

I’m guessing we’ll end up with all of the Highs and about half of the Mids – with the exceptions/surprises (lows who come, or highs who don’t) canceling each other out.

I’ve heard a 75% rule of thumb, but that doesn’t account for out of town guests or special situations at all, so I didn’t want to trust it.
