RSVP Deadline was yesterday — and I had to harrass my brother (who swears he sent his RSVP in a month ago and my mom threw it away to make him look bad), my nephew and FH’s nephew — but we got quick responses and have a final headcount, which is due to the caterer next Friday.
We are at 86 adults (incl. us), 7 kids, and 3 full day vendors who will have the same meal as the guests…exactly 96 butts to have chairs for, which was my estimate.

Final count submitted. CHECK!!!!
Our counts: 83 people total for food (including us), 77 chairs needed (73 for guests and 4 for the quartet), 67 for alcohol 🙂

We invited 186 and 136 people are coming (including me and FI).
I gave the stragglers until today to get back to me, after that I am assuming they aren’t coming. You don’t RSVP, you don’t get a seat. It’s not hard people! HAHA

I think we are going to end up right around 135.

Looks like we might end up with about 104… I’m kind of sad because we invited 170. I wanted less than that, but I was thinking like 130. Oh well….saving some money I guess. Only thing is is now there are some other people I wish we had invited…

We still don’t have a final count but including us we will end up with either 128 or 129 out of 215 invited. Our goal was 120 or less but I’m just glad we’re not at 140 which is what it looked like we were going to be at for a while!

We FINALLY have a *somewhat* final count, but what is really getting to me is the wishy-washy ones… I don’t think people realize how much is impacted by last-minute ‘yes’ responses when they originally declined… Obviously catering is impacted and seating arrangements is a biggie. I’d love to get place cards printed by the weekend, at the latest, because I know that this will be a time-consuming project of getting them all put together…
Is anyone else doing seating arrangements? Running into the same thing?

We finally have an official final count (unless someone drops out) and will have 128 people including us.
We did our seating chart yesterday and it’s about as perfect as it can get so we’re hoping nobody changes their mind! We’re planning on getting escort cards done this week.
