  • If you invite sixty, you should PLAN on sixty. Plan to have leftovers, because there's a chance that not everyone will come, but if everyone does, you'd be a poor host to not have enough seats for all the invitees. GL!

  • lol, I agree with BisketLiss. But if you are wanting me to guess how many will ACTUALLY be there, I'd say 40 maybe. Who knows *shrug*

  • How on earth could you possibly have so many peopel coming. They're supposed to be intimate.

  • the rule of thumb is.....you plan on 10% not showing up...but bisketless is right, if you are having food, you need to make enough for all 60 just on the off chance every one does show up.

  • I've experienced the norm to be half but to make sure, if they have not done an RSVP, someone needs to call and verify if they are coming or not.
