I think we had invited about 85-95 people and we were a total of 77 at the wedding including my husband and I.
I don't remember the exact numbers, but it depends on the size of the wedding and whether it involves a lot of travel. Small weddings tend to have a large attendance rate because presumably you're only inviting people you are very close to. The larger the wedding, the more distant connections, the smaller percentage attend. I think it averages out to about 70% attendance.
Well, we haven't sent out the invitations yet, but 43% of our guests have indicated one way or the other their plans. Of those, 14% are no. But, that number is skewed since the 43% includes our wedding party and parents (who are obvious yeses!)
I think the average is usually 60% coming and 40% say no, so I was a little shocked by our number, but less people to feed I suppose! Plus, we don't live in the city we were getting married in, so a lot of people would have been travelling.
