    We invited 239 and are expecting 75. We knew it would be around this because it is a destination wedding and some of those invited were my parents friends who we knew would only come to the open house.

    We both have large families, so our guest list is at about 210.  About 65% of these people are out of town, so we are planning on 150-160 people actually coming.

    we are having between 200-250 guests and planning on everyone attending! we have HUGE amounts of family and friends and because our venue maxes at 250, we are really having to work our guest list! big weddings are a blast but a lot to plan!

    We invited 121 people to the wedding, and we had 57 guests (including my husband and me).  We knew it was going to be small, though, because a lot of people couldn’t travel due to the economy, jobs, graduations, etc…

    I have a huge family. While we really wanted to limit the number invited, my list alone was 150+, with just family. We are hoping expecting some to not be able to make it because it is close to the holidays. We will have to wait and see though!

    we invited 140–we’d like to be at 120-130…a lot of people are in-state. i’d love it to be 120 or a little less.

    We are inviting 150 and I’m PRAYING that only 120 end up coming. It’s not looking good on that, though. The layout of my reception space can handle 150 for dinner but the flow would be a lot easier if less than 150 came. Maybe I should start burning bridges now lol

    I have a huge family so we have invited 279 total guests which include children. I am expecting the count to be under 250 when all the responses have been returned… I am definitely crossing my fingers for there to be a lot less than 250 adults there. Children under 6 is free =).

    We’re going to invite just over 100 guests. We’re figuring on about 80 attending.
