    We are inviting around 200 people. Yeah I know it is a large number but our families are very large. We really want to get it down to about 125 but I do not see that happening. I have been told several times to only expect half of who you invite to come.

    I'd say that the best rule of thumb is to EXPECT about 10 more than you invite, and then wait to be pleasantly surprised when you only get half of the RSVPs back with a "yes".  It's better to plan for too many that not enough!

    We invited 81 but are only expecting about 50-60 people since a lot of my family lives far away.

    We were thinking 125 - 150. List is at 231. At least space isn't a concern since we're having the ceremony and reception outside  at a friend's farm.  Hopefully Oklahoma weather and wind will cooperate.

    We have just over 100 on invite list. It's going to be fun to see how many actually RSVP.
