We invited 225 and had 132 RSVP yes and attend, so 60%. However, just about all of our “no” RSVPs were from folks we expected not to be attending because our wedding was in CA and DH’s family lives in New England. When I asked my MIL for her list, she marked who most likely wouldn’t be attending and she was spot on. So really, even though it was 60% technically,  it was pretty damn close to 100%. And nobody no-showed which further surprised me!

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  Wow! Our reply-by date is March 1. We still have over 100 out of 177 that have not responded. Scary part is that I keep hearing that the handful of people I expected (and was kinda counting on) say no, is planning on coming! This is extended family I met when I was very young and have not seen since, I don’t even know what name goes to which face. I’m trying to be happy about it, but we invited too many people and if they all come, there won’t be room for a dance floor! :/ Sorry to hijiack your thread… just venting and feeling dumb because it is 100% my fault! I hope your RSVPs start flooding in today!

82%!

We were 100% on all our friends from college, it’s mostly just FMIL’s friends/coworkers and a handful of FI’s coworkers who declined.

I am praying that we get a good RSVP percentage. we have to have 125 for our venue’s minimum. we only invited about 150 people. I’m ok with paying more for more people I just don’t want to pay for a plate that no one will eat. oh yes I should probably mention at least 60 people on our guest list are from out of town…

About 90%. I was told to expect about 75-80% so that was quite wrong.

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  Ya we planned on that high of a “yes” RSVP. We only invited 76 people, they were all in-town family members with 10 in-town friends. I think only 1 person didn’t come. Totally planned.

We invited 165 and had 140, so about 85% Yes.

 @Sunshineliz22:  We had a lot of guests from out of town, but most of them made it. The ones who didn’t make it we kind of figured wouldn’t be coming anyway. There were only a small number of RSVP’s that surprised us. We had the same minimum as you, so totally understand not wanting to pay for guests who can’t make it or invinting your “B” list people. I’m sure you’ll be fine! We had about 45 of our 55 out of town guests come (defined as people with a drive greater than 4 hours and/or a flight away).

@mrswhitemtn:  thanks so much! that makes me feel a lot better. although most of his family that weve talked to made it seem like they were coming but we haven’t talked to all of them… i feel better though.
