is that 249 the amount of people you’re inviting or the amount of people who are actually coming? We invited 227 and based on RSVPs it’s looking like we’re getting less than 120 actually coming.

@cerulean_dreams:  249 is still a ton of people to invite! I’m sorry you are getting hassled over trying to keep the numbers down. It’s truly amazing how oblivious people are when it comes to creating guest lists.

That’s pretty absurd that the friend’s wife was fishing for an invite for her in-laws!

I’m sorry. I can definitely understand your frustration.
Just let people know , as much as you would love for everyone to come, you have a limited guest list.

We invited 220 and got 150. Depending on the age and location of your guests, you should count for at least a 20% decline rate. Even more so if you are giving single people +1s.
