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 results are based on per person - double occupancy!

In light of the recent economic climate the issue of cost is again at the forefront!!! I'm opening myself up to continuing this study? Please respond with the following information - per the first post...

 

_________ $ 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

Okay here is mine during Thanksgiving weekend:

 

____2229_____ $ for 7 nights occupancy (double) - cheapest room option possible at your resort (inc airfare and taxes)

___115______ # of invites (will send soon)

___80______ # of guests attending (we think, maybe more?)

__Dreams PV_______ Resort Name

Most of our guests are only coming 3-4 nights though - only a few are coming for a whole week

Okay here is mine for next week pre-flu (and hopefully post-flu)

 

____1640_____ $ for 7 nights occupancy (double) - cheapest room option possible at your resort (inc airfare and taxes) (I averaged b/c flights are from all over the US and vary)

___150______ # of invites (will send soon)

___33______ # of guests attending (we think, maybe more?)

__Moon Palace Cancun_______ Resort Name

___5 ______ # of stars of resort

 

Although a confound exists now... not only the economy but the violence and swine flu may play a factor for some, might need to star the Mexico weddings. :)

 

Are you going to look any deeper at the stats like correlations between price and attendance? As a fellow stats geek I'd love to run this through SPSS or something and look at it. :)

    • 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.
