I know the acceptance rate for a wedding of 50 will likely be different than for a wedding of 500. We currently have 335 people on our guest list, all family or close friends of ours or our parents. We’re hoping for 275 people, but can fit up to 300. So how many people RSVP yes for your large wedding?

@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.
