The ‘rule’ I had read was to expect 20% declines.

We invited 103 people to our wedding in Colorado; none of those were ‘courtesy’ invites, they were all people who had a possibility of attending.  I would say that 70% of those were out of town, making it a ‘destination’ wedding for most people.

We had 70 people attend, so saw our declines being a bit higher than expected, given the current economy.

I’ve also heard people say to anticipate that 15-20% of your invitees will not attend.  We invited 117 and had 86 attend.
