This won’t help you very much at all, but we invited 114 – most of them were from over 2,000 miles away and are unable to make the trip. We have 35 to have RSVP’d yes. It’s a pretty low number and I was pretty shocked, I wish I would have invited people people [there were alot of people we didn’t invite because we didn’t want it to be too crowded].

Unfathomably:  we invited right at 160, and had about 125 show up (135 RSVP’d Yes). for reference, about 80% of the invitees were at least 2 hours from the venue and had to plan an overnight stay. i was shocked at our turnout!!!

We invited between 175-190 (can’t remember the exact number) and we set the tables for around 150. On the day of, we had about 10 not show up that said they would. Our guests were about half locals (within an hour of venue) and half out of state.

I had a 90% yes rate and most of our guests were local. We invited about 215 and had 192 RSVP “yes”. On the day of about 6 people no-showed or left before dinner, but that was fine because 4 people that RSVP’d “no” showed up! The surprise people had used our wedding website and thought they RSVP’d “yes”, but had accidentally chosen “no” LOL!
