    @MrsN14:  I’ve heard of people figuring this out be making an excel sheet and putting a % likihood the guest will come – for example, the mother of the bride would be 100%, but a great aunt from out of state might be a 10%, an cousin with small kids might be 75%, etc.  Then you can math it up to figure out your attendence rate.
