- Wedding: June 2014
I am having a semi-destination wedding. It’s not a true destination wedding, cause it’s in Connecticut. But no one lives closer than 1 hour away to the venue site. I live in the Syracuse, NY area. So it’s 4 hours away from me and about 40% of the guests. There are another approximately 30% of guests that are between 1 to 2 hours away. The remaining 30% live further. My venue has a 130 minimum that we need to meet or we incur surcharges. Our guest list is 210 people. Should I add more people to the list to be sure we meet the minimum? What percentage should I expect to show up? I know some of the guests on my mother’s list are obligatory ones – older relatives who won’t travel, people who live further away and won’t be able to spend the money to come, etc.
