Could you afford it if all of them show up?  If you can, then invite them!  If not, then pick a number of guests that you can afford, and then go through the list and try to guess who will be coming.  That’s what I did, and from the rsvp’s, I think I just about hit the nail on the head, give or take a few.

Is this an Indian/African/Mexican wedding?

The reason why I ask is because those cultural weddings tend to have “wedding crashers” so you automatically should assume that it’ll be double your invitations.

Also, the more people you invite, the higher your RSVP decline rate will be. For example, if you invite 600 people, your RSVP decline rate is likely to be around 40% versus someone who invited 200 people and their RSVP decline rate might be 15 – 20%.

If you’re not addressing invitations to specific people and just giving out the invites, I would assume that 75% of the people invited will show.
