Yikes!  Hope it turns out okay.

 

We failed on our budget spreadsheet (excel) about 5 times.

I actually found an error last night…for once in our favor.  We have a formula so the cost-payment=what’s left to pay…and this one was paid but showing we still owed 500$.

Which I guess evens it out because earlier this month there was an erroneous 500$ entry into FI’s excel contribution…and another 300$ or so that had been counted as paid but not subtracted.

 

It’s so much work to keep track of the damn formulas and to make sure they copy over etc etc.

More people more fun??!!

@LucyLaLa:  how many people do you have on your list now?  have you already sent out your invites???  if not, can you trim back now?

I’m not sure how many people you invited, but I would expect at least 10-15% to decline, and an even higher percentage if you invited more than 100 people.  Does that help a little?

Have they all RSVPed or are did you invite them all and you’re awaiting RSVPs?

@LucyLaLa:  not everyone will accept on your rsvp.  usually 10-15% will decline.

I agree, not everyone will be able to attend. And dont feel bad, everyone messes up excel!

85% of 143 is 122, so you’ll still be under your desired target (85% of 150 is 127) even assuming only a 15% decline rate.  I think you’ll be fine. 🙂

Fellow data analyst here, so I understand.  Luckily you found it now instead of the day of your wedding when great aunt Sue has to stand during the ceremony because you’re out of chairs.
