Would you order for approx. 185 guests?  TIA!

    We had one for each guest.  I can't think of anyone who wasn't at our ceremony but was at our reception.

    Uppereast, and did everyone take 1? It's going to be the same for us - but most weddings I've been to, only like 1/2 the people actually take one. Unless your placing them AT the chairs.

    I was thinking either 125 or 150.  That was my debate - does everyone take one?

    I guess it would depend a lot on if the ceremony is @ the reception place or at a church a few hours before. 
    We have 250+ coming to the reception, but I would expect a lot less then that at the church, it's 4 hours before the reception about an hour away...I would expect a lot more if it was directly before the cocktail hour at the same place.

    My little cousins handed them out as people walked in, so everyone got one.  I really like having a program (as does my husband) so I didn't want people who wanted them to miss them.

    We had invited 135 but did about 150-160 programs and had about 10 leftover which was good for scrapbooking purposes. I knew we would have some extra guests at the church neighbors and long time family friends and everyone who came to the church took one.

    we had about 170 or so people coming, and my mom wanted to do 1 for every person...
    i think we had about half left over....
    i personally like having a program....so i know where we are in the ceremony, esp if it is a full catholic mass

    I made 75 for 150 guests only bc I know my family is the type that wouldn't show up to the ceremony and only the reception. But you have to be the judge on your family for that one.
