It's so hard to keep track of your guest list total because it seems like it is constantly changing. Which friend just got into a relationship and now wants to bring a date? Which distant relative do your parents suddenly demand be added? Which random coworker has your partner invited now?! There is no way to sugarcoat it, the guest list can be one of the toughest parts of the planning process. What's your current guest list number?

    68, up from the 54 we initially started at.

    Rsvps are due back next week and no further invites are going out. So we will likely end up at about 55 people total in attendance.

    Originally 120, now we're at 128. We haven't sent out invitations yet so it might end up balancing out if some people aren't able to come

    We are inviting 402 guests. In that number we included a plus one for any guest over the age of 18 so hopefully it doesn't grow any!

    I believe were around 130 now and I've decided that for each random person added to our list, I get to add a random person too. Wanna invite grandma's sister's cousin's dog's babysitter's kid? Awesome! So my distant coworker now gets a random plus one. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
    We are now at "capacity" which means nobody is being added and thats final (unless its a matter that's privately discussed with FH and I)

    We invited 184 and are currently expecting about 120, up from 110. It turns out people are really excited to travel to Florida, and we added a couple of people to our guest list.

    Original list was 168, it then went down to 119 and then went up to 122 and has since grown to 146. I still have yet to get my dads distant relatives that he would like to invite since we won’t be inviting his parents or siblings because they’re horrible people. And with all of that we still have almost exactly a year left until the wedding so I expect it to change even more, hopefully not upwards though...

    Originally 50 now 86. Just started sending out invites today but rsvp not due til September. We had a lot of relationships change while planning our wedding so it was swapping SOs and adding or removing children.

    We're at 85. I'm hoping to cut that down a bit though. We're aiming for inviting 75 with the expectation that about 60 will attend (I have a fair few family members that live abroad and I already know they won't be able to come but I'll still be inviting them).

    We are planning on inviting 153, but with most of our guests being OOT, we're thinking about 130 will realistically attend.

    I originally wanted something small... We ended up with about 100 so it doubled somehow. Hopefully it doesn't increase any more
