@FutureMrs86:  we initially invited 80 (so we were sure to not go over in numbers) as the no’s started coming in we invited 20 more. As of right now.. we only have 50 yes’s… if everyone who hasn’t responded says yes… we’ll only have 65 and that’s including me and Fiance 🙁

We invited about 100 (give or take a few) and then we ended up with 70 (give or take a few). It is what it is. We did Save-The-Date Cards too and people said they got confused/lost the card/etc. FWIW, we did a child-free wedding and that added to the declines.

We invited 196 and with less than two weeks to go – I have exactly 100 confirmed guests and 56 outstanding RSVPs. Don’t feel bad!!

Don’t worry!  It’s going to be awesome anyway!  The Friday factor isn’t the issue, sometimes people just can’t make it work!

@FutureMrs86:  i know the feeling. It makes me sad but it is out of state for most people… so I understand. But I’m more upset with the lack of RSVP’s sent back. Especially one that still hasn’t come back yet from a friend I was trying to extend an olive branch to…  no word from her and it’s past the due date… and I know she’s the type of person that wouldn’t forget to mail it back. I would have at least wanted her to send it back…

I only invited about 48 people, I think about 30 will show up.  I am ok with that though.  Means more desserts for me!

i would run through the streets screaming in joy if we got our guest count down to 100 people! we have a firm limit of 150 invites and currently have 184 “must invites” with hopes of 120 saying yes.

the grass is always greener i suppose!

either way the people who are there will make your day special!
