  • Wedding: July 2009

we invited about 200 people and ended up with 100 yes’s on the dot. 

Our wedding, however, was out of town for most of the guests we invited so that did contribute to our low number of yes’s.  We also had 6 people who RSVP’ed YES just not show up without a word.  I also had 2 people call me two days prior to let me know even though they RSVP’ed YES they could no longer come.  So the day of the wedding we had 92 guests.  I had a ton of left over items since I had originally planned for around 125 -150 attending. 

I was bummbed but it ended up to be a very wonderful small wedding!  We were happy with the turn out! 🙂

Just have fun and think….it may be even better with less people to worrie about and you will be able to spend more time visiting with more people. 🙂

On the bright side- maybe you’ll have more money for your honeymoon/house. You can always sell your favors too. Sounds like you’ll have an awesome, intimate wedding. I think it’s tough to attend weddings these days with the economy the way it is- I wouldn’t take it personally.

  • Wedding: May 2010

We invited 206 and have 89 coming.  For 90% of our guests it’s a destination and our wedding is on a Sunday, so it was expected, but still a little disappointing.  That said, when I look at the people who ARE coming, I am so excited to have them all there and can’t wait to get all of these people in one place!  Fewer people means more time to spend with all of them!

  • Wedding: April 2010

We origianlly had to make drastic cuts to get our 200+ wedding to around 150.  We gauraunteed our caterer 120 figuring that would be a cinch to hit (we invited 164).  Well, the results are in and including kids, Fiance & me and our vendors, we’re at 111!!!  My dad’s brothers (all in their 80s) aren’t coming  because it’s outside in the summer (whcih I totally get but hadn’t thought about before), and a bunch of my cousins are coming sans spouse like some kind of girls night out thing.  None of our NYC (where we now live) friends want to give up a holiday weekend to travel to Pittsburgh (whcih tells me a lot about our friendships!)  So YES, I’m shocked & disappointed – and out almost a grand since we already paid the caterer for 120!  I keep telling Fiance I’m bring all our tupperware and taking the extra food home!!
