Well we started out with 120…but now we have 220! (yikes!) It is going to be fun to include more people, though so we are making it work Smile

We started out thinking 200-250, but it’s getting closer to 300. I’m excited, but some days I secretley wish to elope.

Wre originally thinking between 200-250…but then we fell in love with a venue with a 150 cap, so we’ve cut our list to about 140 (hoping for closed to 120 to show so it does’t feel too squished).  I have a really big, really closed family, so it breaks my heart that we can’t invite EVERYone we’d like.

We are inviting around 400.  Our reception venue can hold about 330. 

Most of our guests are families, so if one declines, it usually knocks out about 3.

Inviting 225 but anticipate it will be more like 140 since a bunch are courtesy invites.  Heavy hors d’oeuvres in the afternoon, though one caterer said “oh, people will expect enough to make a full meal” – really? at 2:30 pm?  Then they’ll have to be disappointed, lady-who-is-trying-to-upsell-me.

We’ll be somewhere between 150-200. Its a pretty big range that obviously impacts cost a TON (we’re doing a buffet-style dinner reception) so I’m really anxious to get the official RSVPs!
