Soooo, against my better judgement, our guest list is going to be rather large. Mr3M cant seem to cut back we are doing 75 people each which is 150 and then their +1 which is 300!!!!!! With (dare i say it) hope that 50 people (25 with their +1) are unable to show due to various reasons…..will take it to 250
Holy moly, thats so many people!!! Thats alot of $$ to feed them all!!
How many people are you anticipating at your reception????

We are inviting around 400. Anticipating about 200, due to the fact that it is a New Years Eve wedding, and 50% of our guest list is out of town.

We want to keep it at 100 but 120 is the most I would want to have.
And yes, 250 people is a lot to feed! Did you get a great deal with catering?

We’re having 60, only very close friends and family.

415! And we’re capping it at that. 250 of our guests are on the fiance’s side alone!

Nope, no great deal for catering, decent considering it includes linens, its about 3800. I guess to some people 12.50pp is a good deal but I guess when I think of it its just seems like so much!
** WOW Oct2010 thats a TON of people, yo must be spending a fortune on food!!!

We were at 333 – but I had to eliminte some +1s because our venue can only hold 250 people MAX – so now we are 257 adults and 33 children = 290 people
Hopefully some people won’t be able to make it because it is a travel wedding for most!

We are at 98 people, our reception can hold a max of 100 people….so that makes us choose our guest wisely, only very close friends and family and we can’t make an exception because we literally can’t hold anymore people!

Oh – I should add that the people who had their +1s eliminated did not know that they had +1s to begin with – and all are single, and for the most part know each other. I would never eliminate a +1 if the person knew and/or was in a relationship.

Hopefully 50 or less! We know most will come though.
We’re having an intimate destination wedding with reception on or near the beach!

- Wedding: March 2010 - Calamigos Ranch
I’m hoping it goes down to 150 (or only 150 yes RSVPs, anyway)… but as of today there are 205 people on the guest list. 🙁

Hopefully we’ll have no more than 150 attending. I don’t know the final list yet, though.

I’m also hoping ours goes down… there’s about 160 on our list, we’d like it to be at 130. I have a feeling that once we send out invites, 160 is going to turn into 170-180 with last minute adds per our families. *sigh*

We have 120 on our list. That goes up to 140 if all single guests bring dates — my guess is that probably less than half of our single guests will. We’re aiming for 100 people at the wedding, once all of the responses come in. I think this is probably pretty reasonable, but I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if we end up with a few more than that.

as of right now we have a tentative list of 130…i hope it goes down!!
