Basically everyone was out of town for our wedding except for my inlaws and a few friends.

All of our guests lived either out of state or out of country. We had 50% of our origianl guest list attend. Our wedding was on a Thursday too, so that contributed to some guests not being able to attend; however, we wanted an initmate wedding, so we were very happy with the turnout 🙂

Guests who live in the city (within an hour of) where our wedding will take place: 2
Guests who live in the state where our wedding will take place: 2
Guests who live out of state: 123

Out of our guest list of 125 only 2 people live in the state we are getting married my Future Mother-In-Law and FI’s godmother (also our caterer).

99% of our guests are from out of town, some as far away as the other side of the country.

In DFW metroplex: 23

In Texas: 35 (mostly located in the major cities)

Out of State:76 (All over the country)

Out of Country: 9 (Army & Norway)

We’ve had declines from all categories so far, but a lot of the out-of-staters are looking forward to the trip (that whole “Texas is like another country” mindset, maybe?)

Guests who live in the state where our wedding will take place: 30

Guests who live out of state: 102  (this is largely people who are about 2 hours away since we live just about 2 hours from everywhere!)

Every single one of my guests is out of state.  We’re getting married in South Carolina (we live in North Carolina) and our guests are coming from Missouri, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida, and Michigan!!

We invited 106….ended up with 73!  Not bad for an out of state wedding!!

Every single guest was at least an hour away from our wedding location. Only 9 guests lived in state (about 1.5 hours away) and everyone else lived several hours away.

Pretty much everyone is local. Our wedding venue is only a 15 minute drive from my family and about a 45 minute drive from FI’s. The only Out of Town guests that we have are our grandmothers (mine in FL, his in northern NY) and his uncle/his family (umm, I think they’re in NC now). So… out of 85 guests, only 9 are Out of Town.

I’d say around 35% of those invited are out of towners. And most are coming!
