My base ‘cut’ is 30/30/30. Meaning you get 30% or the invites, he gets 30% and you both invite 30% friends.

Now, there is a catch since his family lives so far away. If you are inviting not-too-close family that has to travel alot, about 60% of that group will not come. People like his immediate family will come, so don’t put them in that category. As for your close-to-the-venue family, only about 20% of them will decline.

Remember, not everybody you invite will come.

I think you should send out invitations earlier to the people who have to travel far. Then, you will get an early idea on how many more people from your side you can invite (in addition to your original 30%).

@Selcier: Agreed!

OP, not everyone you would like to invite will make it to the wedding for whatever reason especially those are will have to travel. I would suggest to follow Selcier’s suggestion and send out your invites to the OOT guest first. Once they respond then you have a good idea as to how many you truly can invite from those who are local.
