My venue could accommodate a maximum of 170 people, so that is the number we invited initially. However, as we received “unable to attend” responses, we were able to invite additional guests.  In all, I believe we invited 212 guests. We had 150 respond that they would attend, and all but two were there on the day of my wedding.  One couple had to cancel two days in advance due to a family-health emergency out of state.

invited 115, 104 showed, the rest declined via RSVP, or post RSVP for various reasons; there were no “no-shows”.

@CRL110282:  We knew about an hour in advance that 5 of them (a family) wouldn’t be coming, but the rest, never heard from. Sounds like our rude guests are out of the norm from other posts on here though, so don’t worry too much!
