Oh my! Between 50 – 60 for the church and meal. Then maybe twenty more for the evening.

We’re hoping for about 100. Still not sure exactly how many to invite. Does anyone know what percentage of people typically say no?

About 100 for us…450????? That’s CRAZY!  How on earth did you find a venue to hold that many? Let alone PAY for it!!

we’re inviting 113, expecting no more than 80.  before you tell me i’m deluded – more than half of the invitees are from Canada, and we’re getting married in Australia, so we’re only expecting a very modest percentage of invitees to come.  If everyone wins the lottery and can make it, the more the merrier!!  Not so much for our bank accounts, but we’re pretty solid financially so i’m not worried.

We invited 202 and we had 151 guests (one of whom was NOT invited and just showed up, grrr). I was really happy, since I had wanted around 150 guests from the beginning.

62 have RSVP’d so far. And seeing no one else will answer my calls about them coming, I guess that’s where it’s staying.

Our venue holds 300 (max) so I’m hoping to cut our list to around 275 or so…we’re at 300+ on the list right now. We’ll see how that changes when it’s time to send out the invites. I’m hoping that the snowy weather we usually have will help the rsvps come in under 300 so we’re not super cozy at the reception.

120 – atleast that’s the invites going out.  Yeah, we expect some ppl not to show – but believe it or not, we know most of them are (bc its been the talk amongst the family/friends for the last year lol)  So, I’m looking at 105-108 (my theory) lol We’ll find out in January.

And do I REALLY have to make calls?  Yikes!

We’re having 400 guests.  Might be more…trying really hard to cut this guest list down!  Good Luck!
