around 170 invited

120 RSVP’d yes

we had around 10 not show or cancel on us for various reasons the week before and 4 people show that I didn’t know about (we had a pretty casual wedding), so I think in the end we had closer to 115.

We invited 93, 72 RSVPd, and 70 came. I thought it was a great turnout, especially considering 16 of our invitees were international, and we gave all of our single friends +1s (only about half used them).

165 invited, 163 came & RSVP’d. No extras.  It was a “kind of” destination wedding. We were 1-2 hours from each family in opposite directions. Most people stayed in the hotel.

We invited about 200, and 150 came. We knew that many of our out of state guests wouldn’t be able to make it, so it was right around what we figured it would be. We only had two people RSVP yes but then not make it.

I was seriously expecting to hear some crazy bad numbers but it sounds like everyone’s turnout was excellent…okay can stress a little less 🙂

We in invited 146 including +1s. Lots of family that we didn’t expect to travel across country to come. ~90 RSVPd yes, 9 were no shows on the day.
