Our wedding is in our hometown, but we do not live there anymore, nor do most of our friends and family. So although it is not a fabulous island its almost destination! ha!

We invited 296, and 200 are coming, so 2/3’s yes, and 1/3rd no.

I invited about 250 and 170 are coming. It is a little lower then I originally expected, but I think that it will be great none the less.

74% accept, 26% decline. It’s an out-of-town wedding for most guests.

260 invited – 160 coming so that’s a 62% acceptance rate. Lower than I had anticipated, but I wasn’t surprised by too many of the responses.

Well we are having a weekday evening wedding on a Thursday night. Next week, in fact. I would say that we had a few neg responses cause people are going on vacation. This also seems to be the week that college folks have off between sessions. That is a small problem, although I see it as a problem both ways. Anyway. I had a 58% yes response, well slightly less. We invited 113 people. 65 are coming, but 5 of them were invited by our guests without asking us. We just didn’t harrass them, cause, hey we are at 58%!

Mine’s par for the course. We invited near 300 guests (from all over the country), and 184 people attended the wedding.

We’re still finalizing our list, but we’ll probably be at around 55-60% attendance rate. And we invited 130. So, around 75 people.

We sent 260 invitations, most of which went to couples, so I guess our potential number was 400+.  We ended up with about 300 guests.

37% accept, 73% decline. this is still an estimate. we sent 130 invitations and I’m still waiting for about 40 RSVPs (we expect about 100 people out of 270 invites.) my family lives where wedding is, the rest live all over the place, including my fiance and I.

scheibs, what do you think is the reason for such a high decline?

Our wedding is in one week — we are at 122 yes, 129 no, 2 no response. 

 A lot of my family is on the east coast and part of my fh’s family is in India – so we new we would not get a high response because of the cost of travel.  However, I did think we would be at 140 not 120.

About 47% of our 400 invites said no.  Most everyone is out of town and some were highly offended that their (poorly behaved) children were not invited.  It’s also a holiday weekend, so that probably has a lot to do with it (though we did send out save the dates over a year previous!).
