WE have 207 on the guest list. 105 have RSVP’d so far. Only 2 have said no, so I’m starting to think we won’t get down to the 150 I estimated…..

Ugh- how embarassing is it that I don’t even know anymore? I think it is somewhere in the 420+ range. 

PLUS- my dad (who refused to give me his guest list) keeps saying things like “Let me know how many people can’t come, cause I’ve got a ton of people I’ve got to invite to this thing.”

And he’s not kidding.

We began at 200, now it’s 250, but looking more like 260.

250, hoping to get around 210 actually coming.

I got invited to a wedding last year that was almost 800 people.  I didn’t go but I can only imagine what it would have been like.

Whew, some of you ladies know a ton of people! We’re inviting about 225 and estimating about 175 will come…But who knows?? It’s a source of nervousness for me…

i have 200 so far, but that was my first list.  I’m thinking it’ll be 250 or so.  I’m all for a huge guestlist, the more the merrier!!!  My wedding is in Puerto Rico, but 75% of the guestlist already live there, and it’s xmas eve, and what puerto rican doesn’t love a good xmas eve party, so i’m assuming most will be coming!

Well….we’ll probably invite around 260 – 275. Hoping to get no more than 250 which would about 200 RSVPs with approx. 35 children and 15 potential crashers.

Miss Biner, you’d be really surprised how many people you know! I was hoping to have 100-125 guests but it looks like we will be lucky to keep it at 200! We are inviting about 280 but many of those are courtesy invitations/out of towners who will not travel. My DOC said to expect 2/3 to 3/4 – 185 to 210. Definitely bigger than what we would prefer, but that would as small as we could get it without excluding any people we are close to, and we didn’t want to do that. We even had to make some hard cuts to get it down to that!

Well, we just mailed out 2,000 invitations today, but are expecting about 700 people. My fiance’s dad is the head pastor of our church, and the whole family has been very involved with the church for the last 15 years, so it’s important to us to include those who would like to be included. It’s going to be a huge party!
