Invited - 40
Attending - 15
There were a few people we invited knowing from the start that they could not come, but the 40 people on our list were the people we wanted there. Most who aren't able to make it are the boyfriends/girlfriends/spouses of friends, so not quite the shunning it sounds like. We're actually very pleased with the crowd we're going to have, and I think only a few people will be seriously missed. We did not invite any family members (drama, leaving it at home!), so I feel quite proud that we have 15 amazing friends excited to take the trip with us. Not everyone is so lucky in the friend department!
