Currently at 350 to be invited, this was after pruning the list some. Hoping many send regrets!

We’re hoping to not go above 300 but after writing our lists I think it might be closer to 325.

We were anticipating it to be about 150, but it’s looking like it’s going to be closer to 200.

We had less than 40 people in total. We rented out an entire high end restaurant and had a 3 course meal plus full open bar. I don’t regret a thing!

We invited 85, including the band.

We had 55, including the band, actually show up. There were 10 cancellations the day of the wedding (people getting sick, etc.).

Another 20 either told us they couldn’t make it, or more annoyingly, passive-aggressively said NOTHING even when we hunted them down. One of his aunts and uncles didn’t respond at all, which I found…incredible.
