Probably inviting 80-90, including wedding party and about 10 kids.  Think we’ll have 50-60 (semi Destination Wedding for a lot of people, but not in a destination that people are going to be excited about traveling to)

The only declines we had were people who we already knew could not come–sick elderly grandparents, and friend who lives out of the country. When you invite that few people, you only invite people who really like you (and thus who would not miss your wedding!).
