I think the general rule of thumb is that about 30% will decline, but of course that will vary from wedding to wedding.

I think the family that you know hang out with and love you will show up. we are inviting 150 and it is mostly family. we have already (without sending out std or invitations) got a good number and rsvps lol. ours is on a friday and it isnt until next year but we are spreading the word now. I think we are expecting about 130 to 140 to show up. which isnt that bad.

and why do the parents think they can invite anyone they want? i am just speaking on my behalf. my parents have their own guest list and we are paying for the wedding. I had to be strict with her and be like only 3 couples and thats it. the only reason she is doing it is because Fiance has 10 more family members to invite than me. he has 60 and i have 50 family members. so she wanted to even things out but it wont allow us to invite friends and such.


Anywho GOod LUCK!

yeah i think they say about 20-30% decline. however, i wouldn’t count on it because we were expecting that as well and hardly anyone has declined at all!
