              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!!!

              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!
