    @aheavel:  Good question!  Do they have to drive or fly?

    I think an estimate of 150 or less would be accurate but, you can’t depend on anything less than what you invite. If you had every single person say yes would it be a problem? One more question – how do you know for sure 80-90 people are coming? Is it just because they are family? Some of our family, even local family RSVP’d no, so just because they are family doesn’t 100% guarentee they will be there. I just don’t want you to expect something and get disappointed.

    Something else to remember, if the date you have listed is your real wedding date, your wedding will be close to the holidays so people may be less likely to travel. Money may be tighter or they may be traveling to see family or just spending time with their family. Not saying you aren’t important, just something to think about.

    I voted for the second option but feel that it might be closer to 100.  Either way you will have a wonderful time!  Would you be open to sending out the invites quite early and then having a “B” list?

    @Terryal87:  Ok, good. I didn’t want to tell you 120 and have you be dependent on that number for finances or space. I think expecting between 100 and 150 is a good range and I am curious to see how it actually turns out.
