How many?

So I think I'm going to make my own centerpieces but how do I know how many I'm going to need?  Our wedding is going to be local around here but most of my family is from out of state.  I know a good portion won't come but I don't know how many!  Is this something that most people just guestimate about?  Just curious what others have done in the past for this.

    Perhaps you should speak with the coordinator planning the of table set-up at your venue.  Then, plan the number of centerpieces accordingly.

    I'm doing my own too and my mom guesstimated. We know that each table at our venue seats ten people, we think we're going to have about 120-130 people, and so she bought 16 vases... just in case. Also, any extra centerpieces that you have can always decorate other things - the guest book table, the cake table, etc. It's better to have too many than not enough!

    Smart thinking about using the extras to decorate elsewhere!  I think that's what I'm going to have to do, just go out on a limb and guess.  I would rather have too many than not enough though!
