Do you have a giant guest list filled with family and friends? Are you planning something more intimate with your nearest and dearest? Or something more in the middle?

    There are 152 on our list right now, but our venue only holds 150 so we are most likely taking 2 off! I’m hoping only 140 or so RSVP yes though!

    We invited 79 guests and we will have 62 attending Smiley smile Our original guest list was right at 150, but we quickly decided we did not want that large of a wedding.

    We have 226 people invited. I'm hoping for less than 200 to actually attend.

    We currently have 104 on the guest list currently. We know of 2 who won't come (his grandparents, travel is hard for them) but we haven't sent invited or anything out yet and we don't have any idea how many to expect out of the rest

    We have 175 on our list but have not sent out invitations yet. There are a lot of out of state guest so we are only expecting 140 approximately but our venue can hold almost 200 so I am not worried.

    We are inviting around 150 people. We actually have a lot of wiggle room so if we add a few more that's ok too.

    We have 50 guests on our list (the max the venue can hold). Invites haven’t gone out yet, but we’re expecting the majority to attend

    We have 222 on the guest list but all but 20 are from out of town/state so we’re expecting much fewer.

    We invited around 350, and 220 are coming (we had a ton of out of town guests but still had a large amount of them say yes)!
