    I didn't think that reality would hit this soon!! My travel agent had some special rates for our resort that expire on this Friday, and with that being said...We went ahead and sent our STD's so that our guests could save some $$$$$!! I think that we were thinking that about 15-16 people would actually make it, but we already have 16 people that have made their reservations!! We found that most of our guests are making this into a "vacation" while they are at it! So this means more $$ for our reception, more $$ for the OOT bags...etc.! I hope that none of you under estimate your guest list like we have!!!! Not upset, just surprised actually...and will be re working our budget!!!!

      Well that's exciting news - how many people did you invite? At least you know way ahead of time - I am still wondering about 1/2 of my guests!

        Oh how exciting. Your lucky you have good little guests that actually get the booking thing done. Some brides are having some issues with this. I am definitly underestimating how many people will actually go, we will probably send out 75 invites and I'm really hoping the actual number will stay under 30.

        I'm sure you will find a way to make it happen in your budget, these things always seem to work out in the end.

          we sent our about 50 invites..(maybe more...fi keeps adding!) I think that its actually a good thing that they are saving money but have to book it by friday to get the cheaper rates!!!

            OH NO! Don't underestimate your guest list! I learned the hard way! All of the guest that were invited but were put on the negative side to attend are ALL coming! We have guest that have verbally commited, just haven't follow through yet!(If they don't book by friday, then they have to pay full price!)

              Oh geez your making me nervous. lol. I'm just afraid 1. Dont want to hurt anyones feelings by not inviting them and 2. What if I only invite 30 people and 5 people end up booking.

              Maybe I should be rethinking this. Hmmm, I should probably really sit down with Ryan and devise a guest list and then start cutting it back a little.

                We sent out about 55 STD's, so about 110 guests. There are a lot of ppl we sent them to that we know will not come. And then there is a large group of people that we knew would really want to come but we weren't sure. So far the majority of our friends have said they're definetly coming, but haven't booked yet, at least not through our TA. My family will be done booking this week and then FI's family needs to do theres. So we originally thought we wouldn't have more than 20, now its looking more like 30, and those are just the people we've seen and talked to!

                  This is great news!!! At least people are coming to your wedding. I sent out 75 STDs and I am guess that only 25 will come. Although when I was doing my budget planning I did budget for 45 people. I didn't want any surprises. Now you just need to recalculate your budget and see where you can cut costs.

                    Oh, I'm sorry! I didn't mean to make you nervous.....It was just a total surprise to hear that so many people ARE coming! And most of them are the ones that we least expected!!! It really is something that everyone should consider into their budget because now our budget is doable, but tight!!!

                      No, I was just kidding. I will be nervous weather I invite 5 people or 500 poeple. lol.

                      You are right though, and I definitly think we will need to do some trimming of the guest list before we actually send out invites.
