    We sent out 140 total invitees…. our ending total is 114 (including us).  I am happy with our numbers, we were actually UNDER budget for the reception so we added on some extras

    We invited 240 but are expecting around 70-80 because it is a destination wedding. We were originally thinking it would be closer to 100 but, as everyone is well aware, the economy sucks and people have less money to spend on traveling. Oh well! We wanted something really small anyways!

    We are planning on somewhere between 75 & 100.  We promised our venue that we wouldn’t exceed 100, so we’re forced to stay on budget now!

    @ejs4y8 Thanks for the invite! 

    @boogerette You started at 610?!?  I don’t think I even know that many people!!

    We have 330 on our invite list, but we’re hoping for 200 or a little under… 93% of the guest list is Out of Town, so we’re expecting a relatively low attendance rate.

    We are having 50 people come. We invited 50 on the nose and didn’t receive a single regret. We’ll see if they all show up!

    We are having a small semi-formal summer evening wedding and I am expecting 75 to 100 people for that and the simple reception afterwards. The next day we are having a pig roast and we are expecting 150 to 200 people for that.

    I wanted no more than 100, guest list is now at over 200 – so hopefully looking at around 170ish people…less would make me even happier!

    @Ejs478 – ha ha whats on the dinner menu? – I’m there! lol

    Our final guest list came in at about 290, and by my best estimate (WHY won’t people send in RSVPs!!! The due date is long gone!!!) we will end up with about 220 attendees. But if it weren’t for space, we could have invited so many more people. The guest list has been my biggest wedding headache, for sure.

    We’ll probably end up with about 40 guests, and that’s fine by me.

    The list is at 185 but I am hoping for somewhere around 150.

    Well, we were supposed to run off, just the two of us, but peopple found out, and so far we’re at 7 with 4 1/2 months to go. I’m only ordering 25 invites, so, there can’t be many more! Everyone else gets a post-wedding announcement!

    We’re inviting just over 200 people and are hoping for about 150-170.  If we end up with fewer, we’ll probably allow some of our single guests (not in long-term relationships, not engaged, not married) to bring dates or we’ll invite some more school/work friends who won’t know any different.
