This varies from person to person and the type of event you are having. So far, I’ve invited about 85-90 people. Maybe 10-15 have turned down. Only 2 so far were from out of town (more likely to attend than the locals..which is new for me!)

We invited 130 people and got only 2 declines, even though more than half were out of of the country/state! We did not have any no-shows, but even had a few crashers!

We invited 105 people and we had 90 show up, most of the ones who declined were from out of province or elderly so we didn’t think they’d actually show up.

We had a little over 300 invited, and only about 220 replied as coming, and 95% of those actually showed up (some no shows).

We invited 122 adults and have 101 adult “yes” responses.  We’ll also have about a dozen kids.  Our RSVP deadline was 7/31 and so far we only have 4 outstand – which blows my mind!
