It’s really tough to guess. We are having a desination wedding and got about 20% declines but most that declined we knew were not going to be able to make it. I would say don’t invite more than you can afford to host or the place has capacity for. Ultimately if you don’t meet the minimum maybe you can pay the minimum but they might allow you to reallocate money to updated cocktail hour food or an extra course.
