I am as well.  As long as we hit the number we guaranteed to our venue I’ll be happy. We definitely invited more people than we wanted but really had no choice as both of our families are HUGE!

Most definitely! My family is huge and there are certain people I’m inviting out of obligation only.

I hear you!  between my FMIL’s list and my mom’s list of people that “MUST recieve an invitation” we were 3x what my fi and i wanted!  i only sent STD to people we 100%  had to invite (not those long lost family members or friends)…and when invites go out I am hoping for about 50% no’s!


good luck ladies, my fingers will be crossed for you!

I was totally praying for this!  Our venue wouldn’t physically hold as many as we invited.

We invited around 175 and ended up with 125.  Perfect!

Me! Me! (Raising hand)

We have to invite all these stupid family members that I have never even met before from other states. I really hope they all rsvp no but my family said they are already super excited for it. Ummm, okay they don’t even know who I am! LOL

20% isn’t a particularly high percentage.  Average, I think, is about 25%.  Do you have several guests from out of town?  If so, you’re probably golden.

I had been, but we’re getting 45% nos!  It feels like half relief and half sad that so many people can’t come (2/3 of our list were from the other coast).

My guest list has seriously been stressing me out!! We really need only 150…but the list keeps getting to 175 and up. And at this point…it’s people who are kind of non-negotiable on a guest list (my 20 some cousins and their SOs). And they are all people I want to invite! But I’m kind of hoping some of the out of towners aren’t able to make it…keeping us at around that 150 number!

We’re only inviting 28 people total so I’m hoping everyone can make it!

@SarahSmilesDec28: I’m in a similar boat. We’re inviting 95 (so far…my mother is saying she needs to invite 10 more people!) and the venue holds 90. (technically it can hold 100 but that would be VERY tight…80 is their more comfortable number.)

Im really hoping that at least 10-15% of people say no. But with a trimmed down list (only family and close friends) I’m sweating it out a bit.
