I’m so afraid this is going to be our situation. Fiance isn’t really worried about it, but there are alot of people on my side that I hope won’t come (sounds awful, I know, but hey…)

Hoepfully all of the people who have sent back yes’s are the folks super excited about the wedding and the no’s are just putting it off. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh no!  We’re not having a destination wedding, and I haven’t sent out invitations yet but I’m one of those brides that figures 80% will attend so we’re sending out a lot more invites than people we want to attend.  Maybe we should re-think that!

Do you have space for more than the 50-65 if you have more people attend?

we took the numbers gamble as well with this, but for us, so far less people are coming than we expected, which makes me so happy! Yey for saving money!

Wow, I hope that doesn’t happen. A few of our family members would have to win the lottery for this to happen to us though. I think we only have maybe 30 people on our “won’t come” list and I’ve already got declines from 4 of them.

Oh no! Well, ‘the more the merrier?’ ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope this doesn’t happen with us, we’re an ‘out-of-state’ wedding for most as well. Maybe we’ll do the group of delayed invites that will only get sent out if we get that # of declines. Look on the bright side, you’re super loved! ๐Ÿ™‚

We are having a destination wedding in Vermont (we are all in CA) and we are totally afraid of this happening!  We started doing a head count last night and I almost barfed.  So many of the people that we just had to invite are going to come…..yikes.  I guess that means we are going over budget.  Oh well!

Oh no! I really hope this doesn’t happen to us! Ours is pretty “destination” for a lot of family so tons are on the “definitely not coming list”. If they RSVPd “yes” I might cry!
