Anyone who will need a seat and some food and/or booze.  🙂

The only stupid question is the one not asked.

Assume it is everyone who will be eating, so when you turn in  your numbers, you need a number, including the bridal party. One reason is catering, another reason is firecodes. Facilities can be shut down for having more people than they can safely hold.

Everyone attending is included. This also applies to your attendants and yourselves.

Like everyone above said. But some places (like ours) include the bride and groom “for free,” but they will say that explicitly.

The number includes all guests, bridal party and the bride and groom. Also, you may want to feed your vendors (or you may be required to, check their contracts) so you’ll want to see if your caterer offers a less expensive vendor meal, or whether they get the same price meal as everyone else, in which case I assume they’re included in the head count as well.

Everyone who is eating. (Don’t forget to count your photographer and other vendors! They need to eat too!)

I used to work in catering, and I would assume that it means everyone who is eating one of your meal selections unless the venue is just wonky.  It doesn’t necessarily include your vendors – you should ask about that.  Sometimes they’ll offer separate selections for your vendors so that you don’t really have to serve them the filet mignon that you’re serving everyone else if you don’t want to lol.

There are no stupid questions. That number includes everyone that will eat and drink.
