Number of DW guests?

Recommended Posts

We sent out 144 invites and have 81 people coming so far.

 

The majority of our guests are staying at the hotel we picked. Others are staying at AI's and time shares.

It's really true that whomever you think will come won't and vice versa. We both have huge families and yet are getting like 2 people from each of them. Lots of people PO'd that it's not a "real" wedding. My one Aunt even told me I was being selfish b/c I was excluding the family. I invited everyone. Maybe it is selfish but this is my dream wedding, never pictured it any other way. FH just wants me to be happy.

 

We are having a welcome dinner Thursday, ceremony with cocktail reception and beach party on Friday. I don't really want to plan more than that b/c I want people to do what they like and take advantage of the AI's. Does that sound like enough?

we invited about 115 people, and had 28 and 2 kids. the number vacillated tremendously - one week we thought we'd have 80, the next 15...it turned out perfectly w/ 30. we only had a rehearsal dinner (for everyone) the night before and the actual wedding. we usually ate together, and chilled on the beach together, but we planned by the day - one day the boys woke up and decided to do the tequila tour, one group went into town, etc.

Ok I haven't sent out my invites out yet but are you doing your counts by RSVP cards to your house or how many people actually booked their trip? I am scared ppl. will RSVP but not complete the process of planning their trip. Then how do you call and when do you call to say you RSVP but you are not on my list from the hotel who booked? Ok I have 1 million questions that then lead to more questions ahhhhhhh

we sent out 140 invites and so far there are over 70 ppl booked - AHHH - we honestly expected 40! Our booking closes on Thursday, so I'll have a near-final count then. I know there will be some last minuters!

We invited 25 people, and had 17 at the wedding. I know there were feathers ruffled but I always wanted a small wedding (I don't do well in front of large groups).

 

Have a great wedding, and although it's hard, try not to let the negative comments get you down. At the end of it all, you'll have had your dream wedding and will be married to the man you love.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
