      It's actually split, but it appears more family
      We have 8 friends booked and 20 family members (1 vendor too:))
      If it weren't for us paying for our 8 friends (bridal party) I'm not sure any of our friends would be coming. Even though all of them have always said they'd 'be there.' Yeah. Right.

          We have quite a few people who are saying they will come who haven't booked a darn thing yet. Out of the people who did book, we have 24 guests. 9 are family, the other 15 are friends (our family is seriously sucking on this.... SERIOUSLY disappointing )

          Unlike a few of you who have posted, our friends have always said they're coming, so have our family. Our family have backed out A LOT (Reggie's parents are each 1 of 9, ONE of his aunt's is coming... I'm VERY close with my aunts (2)/uncles (3)/cousins (4), and only 1 aunt & 1 uncle are making the trip) but the friends are staying true to their word.

            I totally agree Heidi, I guess I just figured that more family would be coming then friends. Right now we have 22 booked and its about 50/50. But I dont see anymore family booking and maybe 10-15 more friends making the trip. Its just sad, but we knew this came with the territory of have the DW.

                23 are booked thus far and I think it will end with around 55-60 guests in total. Almost all of my friends are planning to go than family, and FI has almost all his family going and very little friends. How odd!

                Heidi & KellyandMatt08: I thought I was the only one who had very little family going! I think it's only going to be my parents, brother, and 4 cousins...

                  We invited tons of his family (his parents are each one of six siblings!) but only a few on my side; my friends more than make up the difference. =) Quite of few of his aunts and uncles can't go, which we expected, so I think that we're actually going to be something like 80% friends:20% family. Maybe a total of about 60 guests?

                  I've always said that our friends ARE our family, and they're totally proving us right. It's what we want, really. All the people we love more than anything in the world, and they're all going to be in one place, with nothing to do other than relax, for days on end. Whee!!!!
