  • Wedding: June 2013

Hi, I haven’t had my wedding yet (it’s in June) and about 50% of our guests are Out of Town but we’re expecting most to come. In fact, about 15 people have already informally told us they plan on coming and a couple already bought tickets (they live in Paris). I think these guest lists are hard to predict. I’ve had friends invite 200 and end up with 110 and friends who invited 140 and only had 4 people say no, so it’s a combination of who the guests are (are they people who like to travel, do they have the finances?) and where your location is (is it easy to get to?)

I would advise that if your budget can accomodate more people and you’re okay going over your guest count, you can feel free to invite more. Otherwise, I would play it safe and wait until you get your replies. Another way is to actually call people and ask them to try to get a gauge of whether they plan to come or not. You won’t know for sure until your RSVP date, but at least it might give you an idea…

Good luck!
