    Our guest list is currently around 150...by the time we get to sending out invitations, I can see that either slightly increasing or decreasing...and I would say we would expect about 130 to actually come, tho would be nice for everyone to be able to make it Smiley smile

    My fiancee just did a head count for our guest list. It came out at 120 but I expect the actual number will be far less (some of my fiancee's relatives have already said they will be away at the time, and my parents have told me a good number of older relatives will not be able to come as the wedding is in Alberta and they live in B.C.; also some of my work friends have told me they do not expect to be able to come as they will be out of the country). So the actual number will be around 90-100, I anticipate.

    Hey Ivy! This is so sweet! It's such a good idea! Will you wear a long dress to walk around the city or tea length? You should participate in these discussions on dresses I think you would like them Smiley smile

    Dress shopping soon!

    We will be meeting with and most likely booking a restaurant venue located in Ottawa's historic Byward Market. The restaurant is called the Side Door restaurant Smiley smile

    My fiancé and I decided on a smaller wedding have a tentative guest list of about 60-80 people. We wanted to be prepared for 80 people to account for our single friends and family members to bring their plus 1's and/or children, but the number may be closer to 60 if our out-of-town/out-of-the-country guests can't make it, or couples decide to leave their ittle ones at home. Our budget is a modest $15,000 with the majority of the funds being spent on food and drinks (of the alcoholic variety). We want our guests to have a good time!
