of guests!! Yesterday after agonizing with my mom and FMIL for two hours over how to cut our guest list by 45 because the caterer informed us he could only accomodate 180, I realized making cuts is harrrrrd. But then, we called to verify and were told no, that is only onsite – they can, in fact, accomodate 330 people. Whew!!! So all of those crossed off were re-added. So, here’s my question. How many people are you inviting, and if you’re already married, how many did you invite vs. how many came??? My # is, as it stands, 242 – I am anticipating around 20 additions by the time invites get ordered, and I am very comfortable with that!

Invited 130, 75 attended. This is about what we expected though as we had a destination wedding that was about a 6-7 hour drive from where the majority of our guests live.

we are inviting 145. our venue is supposed to hold 110. we can put people in another section, close to us, (i volunteered to go there), but i’m hoping not to do that and i’d even like to go under. but so far everyone’s saying yes, so i’m having freak outs.

We are at 271 right now. I am expecting the guest list to be around 300 by the time we send invites. Our wedding specialist said you can estimate 20% won’t come, so we’re thinking the final number may be 240-50.

We’re inviting almost 70. And seriously, that’s almost every living relative on both of our sides..

Invited 216, 197 came. ANy more than that, we’d be talking all night instead of dancing and partying the way we did!

We’ve sent STDs to 99 total (includers if everone brings a date and all of their children. If I invited everyone I truly wanted, we would have been closer to 250—big Irish family.

I really hope a lot of the already married people respond to this- its interesting to see what percentage came! We are inviting 65 and hoping 50- 55 come.

We’re inviting around 160 – hoping that our final list is around 130.

We are inviting about 60 but our wedding is in Vegas and my family is from Oklahoma and Oregon and his family is from California so we aren’t sure who is going to be there or not but the important friends and close family will be there.

We’re invited around 170 and we want anywhere from 100-130, it should work out really well since its out of town for so many of ’em.

Inviting between 375-400. I think our guest list is at 360 right now.
Anticipating about 200, maybe less. Several of our guests would have to travel in, and it is a holiday. We will see. I’d love for them all to come!

180 invited, 137 coming, 3 RSVP then un-RSVP’d, which was odd. That is 75% acceptance for a destination wedding, so I am very happy with that number.
