Advice!!

Ladies, I am wondering what percentage of your guests have RSVP'd? Our guest list HUGE because I have 200 family members and with everybody else it is still a little out of control after the final cuts. The reason I am a little worried is because I am trying to pick between two churches. One would be a little tight and the other is not my first choice. So if I can get an idea of how many people might actaully come I can make my decision. TIA!

    i would plan on 100% attendance.  there is no magic rule.  We had invited many people thinking, "ohhh they won't come".  well they all did.  We did have a balance though.  many people who we THOUGHT were coming, aren't.  So you NEVER know.  just plan on 100% attendance.

    ditto pp, plan on 100% & go from there.  We ended up having everyone say yes except for my grandparents who we knew couldn't come b/c they dont' travel anymore.  I think everyone we invited thought "sweet, we can vacation in the Rockies" :) LOL  Good Luck with your guest list & chosing your church!
    no identifiable siggy pictures anymore, thanks a lot stupid nest!

    Agreed. All of our guests are from OOT and we had people who we did not think would come at all RSVP yes because of the location. Planning for 100% (or at least 90%) attendance is safe/smart.

    Wow! I had the same questions. Now I'm concerned because we are planning on inviting 220 ppl but had determined that only 160 would actually attend. This has already been a cause for concern as our venue can squeeze in 175, but can comfortable hold 150. Guess it's back to the drawing board for us! Thanks for posting the question princeatude!

    Ditto PPs. Definitely make a venue choice expecting 100%.
