My venue seats 225 people. I added up just our closest friends and family (nothing farther than 1st cousins) and got 148. Plus 53 are single so might bring a date. Plus 71 kids who might be taken with. So that's already 272 and there are about 50 other friends I want to invite. Ugh so stressful . lol
(# of out of town guests * 65%) + (# of local guests * 90%) = total # estimated to attend.
So if you have 150 people on your guest list, 50 of which are out-of-towners, and 100 are local, your equation will look like this: (50*65%)+ (100*90%)= 122.5. So, approximately 123 people will attend. Please note, as I said, this is an art, not a science. So it's a good idea to make an a list and a b list. Send your a list invitations out 8 weeks in advance. As you start to get acceptances and declines, you can start inviting some of the people from your b list.
