    We're planning on sending out about 100 STDs/invites and expect at least 75 to show. Hopefully it will be more than that- the more the merrier!

        Jilly - I swear those words could've come out of my mouth, they fit my situation so perfectly. I live in a different city then my friends now, so I never see them or talk to them anymore. We spend all out time with our families and Matt's friends. So even though my life-long friends won't be there, my current friends will be and it's going to be awesome!

        I'm kind of annoyed with the people that aren't coming to ours, mostly my friends because none of them are coming, but a lot of FI's are. But up until this week FI had no one coming from his family, so I'm glad that his brother and his wife are coming now.

        Its funny because I say "none of my friends are coming", but you know what? I spend more time with FI's friends, which are my friends now too, and with FI's brothers wife, we're also friends, so I'm not going to worry about my friends that I never see anymore, its their loss if they don't want to come to mexico!

Nice?
          That sucks Mo! We had family that was going to back out because their friends are going to the DR in December. Their loss, that's what I say!

          Our resort is small, and although we had a backup plan for overflow, we didn't want to have to use it. We sent out about 35 invites, and have 22 people coming, with a few still sitting on the fence. We only have 1 room available (if we move some people around), so I'm sort of hoping no one else wants to come. It'll be small and intimate and wonderful! We can't wait!

            We realize that not everyone will be able to come to our DW, due to conflicting schedules or because they cannot afford it. But I have one friend, who before we even announced when or WHERE the wedding would be, she said, Oh I probably won't go. I said, HUH? It was so odd to me. We hadn't even picked a date or place for the wedding yet. It was when we announced our engagement.
            Ah, well. I will be thankful for anyone that comes!

              we have a initial yes's of 84 and 50 maybes and 31 nos.. so expecting about 110 maybe... we are very happy with that number. plus we are having an AHR which about 120 of my family and parents friends who can't or won't be making the trip. so that's a good turn out in our eyes.

                  We plan on inviting around 100 but are hoping for 75 or less. We'd prefer to keep it more intimate but I have a HUGE family and am inviting some of them even though I know they won't make it.

                    I am inviting over 100 guests. I have been reading up on destination weddings - experts say to expect about 60-70% of guests to actually go.

                      wow 60-70%. I never thought it was that high. we invited 150, just sent out the STD's 2 weeks ago, have NO idea how many people will come. at least 20 for sure, but so far no one is RSVPing on our website. when will people actually start doing this? Im impatient!
