So I noticed someone looking to see what the ratio's were for guests attending a DW and the number of invites sent, when I realized that Results of my poll hadn't been posted...

 

Without further ado... this is pretty neat!!! drum.gif

 

The average cost to guests attending a DW is

$1765
The median cost is very close as well
$1700

 

The average number of invites sent to invite guests to a DW is

73 Invitations

 

The average DW has

34 guests in attendance

 

The median for attendance is slightly lower

29 guests in attendance

 

I think think this is really cool - regarding the number of guests attending versus the number of invites sent....

55% of people invited to a DW actually GO!

 

WOWZERS!

 

Thanks for participating!

The crazy statistican came out in me, and I didn't want to highjack the post with this request but I am curious to know this info - i think it could be a neat study (i am a closet geek of a statistican).

I read everyone's comments and am curious about the cost of a DW and it's correlation with the number of guests that attend - I ask this because as brides we worry that we are asking too much of our friends and family to spend for a DW - but I wonder if it matters.

I am curious to know the following (fill in the blanks):

_________ $ for 7 nights occupancy (double) - cheapest room option possible at your resort (inc airfare and taxes)
_________ # of invites sent
_________ # of guests attending
_________ Resort Name
_________ # of stars of resort
Interesting. I love to read stats and do research, I just can't do the math!


___$2100pp___ for 7 nights occupancy (double) - cheapest room option (inc airfare and taxes)
____100_____ # of invites sent
____30_____ # of guests attending
_____Couples Swept Away____ Resort Name
_____4-5 depending on list____ # of stars of resort

I'm embarassed to ask this, but...I know the first stat (price for 7 nights, incl air and tax) is based on double occupancy, but are all you posting prices PER PERSON, rather than per COUPLE? I've noticed a couple of you made that clear, but most don't specify. Thanks!

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
