    Hey Ladies,

        This is the best site ever. I am so excited to have found it. My fianc© and I visited Dreams in September and we have just this week booked the date of July 18th for our wedding. We are very excited, however we are noticing that a lot of family members are starting to  be concerned about the wedding being far away ( we live in NY). My parents especially, are worried that many people won't attend ( which I am okay with).  I am just wondering how many people most of you invited, and then how many people ended up actually attending. If you would be willing to share this with me I would really love it!  Another completely random question I have that may be on here but I haven't read all the pages is whether or not Chinese Lanterns are allowed. We would like to release them the night of the wedding, and the ones I found are non plastic and biodegradable. I was just wondering if anyone knew. Thanks so much!

    I invited 100 people but only expecting about 30 people to actually book and come to the wedding.  Just need to prepare yourself to get some no's back its ok as long as you and your fiance are there that's all that really matters.  I'm not sure abou the lanterns that I would ask the hotel or wedding planner.  I've seen them in some pics so they must be allowed in some hotels just have to check about yours.

      Guest count was a concern for us too.  But we ended up inviting 80 people, and our final count is 32 (including me & my fiance).  I recall someone saying that on average, it's safe to expect a third of your invites to attend.

      I've heard the average is around 30% of your guestlist. We invited 140 and have about 45 coming - so 30% was fairly close!

      Our guest count is a concern for us as well. so far we are inviting 69 people, and it keeps going up. I'm so worried about not finding the right resort or wedding package to cover at least close to that amount with out killing our savings.... I'm really hoping for around 40 to actually attend.
