    We had about 79% rate of yes.  If I hadn’t invited all my coworkers and + 1s (about 25 people) out of politeness even though I knew most of them would be working (it was a very busy time of year for us), it would have been more like 89%.

    We had a semi-destination wedding where ~25% were local, ~20% were a couple hours’ drive away, and the remaining ~55% were a plane flight + drive away.

    I had a low number, but that was partly due to my DH’s family having to come from overseas. We invited all his family but knew only a handful could come. I also have a lot of family out of state. In total we invited around 125, 80 RSVPed yes, and only 71 showed.

    I think we were in the 70-80% range of yes responses.  Our wedding also involved significant travel for most guests, so it was really impressive!

    We invited 175, only gave guests to those in relationships, and only 20 total out of state. Surprisinly only about 130 can make it. We are happy with the lower number though. We didn’t do STDs but definitely gave most a heads up.
