I wasn’t sure what topic to put this under but here goes.
I was wondering how many people RSVP’d to your wedding vs how many actually came.
We currently have 123 RSVPs but I wasn’t sure if a number of them won’t show up, or if there would be a few that show up anyway.
So, at your weddings did more than what was RSVP’d show up, or less?

WE had less show up. I don’t really know the exact numbers but it was something like 130 said they were coming and only 110 showed. It was really cold on our wedding day though and our ceremony was outside.

When you only invite 21 people…they tend to show up, we had 25 if you counted the officiant, his wife and our two photographers.

We had 100.. Only 1 didn’t show that RSVP’d yes, because they were sick… Every other RSVP was right on. I was told to expect 75-80% of the rsvps… That was so wrong.. It was exact.. 🙂

Haven’t done the invitations for mine yet, but my cousins wedding last year had like 120 RSVP’s and over 150 showed up. They had to throw up some extra tables in the hallways/cocktail area and it was a mess. I am sure that’s not the norm but it does happen

We had a few people not show up…but nobody just inexplicably didn’t come, they all texted or called in the few days before the wedding with valid excuses (family emergency, problems with immigration for those traveling overseas, a few people with the flu since it was a winter wedding)

@heathuhhhhwebbbb: We had 82 guests RSVP yes by the 3 weeks out date we had to give the caterer a guarantee, but by the day between late cancellations and about 3 people who just didn’t show up on the day we ended up with 9 less.
It was ok though, because I plan events as part of my job, and I ALWAYS underestimate that 3 week guarantee by 7% and even the three day number by about 2% to account for people getting sick, just deciding on a whim not to come, etc.
