Out of the number of invites sent, how many said yes?

Recommended Posts

Ok so I know there are probably threads on here about this already but I'm dying to know- for those of you who have gotten married, or those who have sent out invites and already got back your responses, what was the ratio or number?

 

We will have a ton of invites going out- about 210 and are thinking about 80-100 will say yes after going through the list and seeing who will REALLY come.

 

Post your invite number and amount of YES RSVP's here!

 

(And of course any comments about anything interesting you found with people saying yes, not saying yes... )

I don't know, this has been a real dilemma for us.  We are wondering... if we pair down our guest list and only invite certain select close family and friends, and all of them say yes, then great.  But if some say no, then we wouldn't had room for maybe someone we made ourselves cut off the list. It's hard!

 

It'll be interesting to see what everyone else says.

Me too.. I'm just really hoping this thread catches on.. It would be something really good to know. And I know it will go case by case for everyone but it would be interesting to see.

Im not that far in yet, but I sent out 40 STDs and about 15 people are coming so far, I havent sent out invites yet (w/ RSVP cards) so I dont have a definite count yet, but in all reality I sent out 40 STDs inviting about 90 people, and only 15 have said they are coming/booked so far.

Invited ~60 people total, so far 27 are a definite YES.  About 17 include us two, bride/groom immediate family (ie mom/dad, brothers/sister and their wife/husbands and kids)

We sent out 110 invitations (220 people or so). And we have 70 people officially booked, and expect maybe 10 more. We still have 3 months to go, but I think these are pretty firm numbers. Looks like 30-40% acceptance rate, not too bad.

I will say there are 10 people (friends and family) that we had on the 'definite' list, and they aren't coming (like best friends and in-laws). Life gets in the way, either from money to job to kids or parents. It's always surprising, but don't take it personally. You will still have a great time. I will admit some of these "can't make it" from my close friends does kinda hurt, but I'm just trusting what all married brides have said that 'you won't even notice they aren't there'. I still gently remind these friends they have 3 months to book though!

Your numbers are exactly what I will be sending out! We will have about 220 people invited and I was expecting about 80 to say yes. (My FH thinks more like 100 but he is dillusional.) And I've already heard some of the "I won't be able to make it" stuff from close friends and I hate to admit it, but I definetely took it personally even though I know I shouldn't have. We think alike! :) Keep me posted on the final number!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
