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

Recommended Posts

wow, I can't even imagine inviting that many people!

 

about the close friends thing though, I have one best friend who I have known since early childhood, and when I told her about wanting a destination wedding her immediate response was "well, I don't know if I can make that..."  to which I responded You're Coming Or Else (yes, caps included, I brought out the inner bridezilla in me lol).  It helped though that I backed up my statement with a pledge to pay whatever she can't afford.  And even though i KNOW she really is tight on money and that's the only reason for her hesitation, it did still hurt a little that that was her first reaction.  sigh.

 

I guess that's the price we all have to pay for being destination brides.

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!

We send our invitations at the beginning of this month Aug. and we already started getting RSVP back. We invited a total of 150 people and already have 45 adults and 5 children book. We will know the exact numbers by the end of September I can post back my exact numbers so you can get an idea. But we are thinking we will end up either with 60-90 guest.

Yeah we are actually doing this for some of our closest friends and family that we know money is tight with. It is just easier then having them worry or be stressed over it.

The hardest part for me is the WAITING and not knowing.  The wedding isn't util May 2011.  STDs went out in May 2010.  I get calls and people say they will be there but we do not have firm numbers.  Formal invites go out in Jan I think and I will still have to wait gor RSVP.  All I want to do is know so I can get everything done with.

 

We invited a total of 50 something people.  I anticipate maybe 25.  I am perfectly okay with that.  We wanted less people and that is why we decided on a destination wedding.  I don't care if only 10 show up...I just want to have the OOT bags done already!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
