    I think we're looking at 10 at this point. Our guest count came in lighter than expected.

    Assuming everyone RSVPs yes, 15 including ours. Realistically speaking it’ll probably be 12

    I think it'll be between 4 or 5 long tables, depending on the final count.

    Our venue is fairly new so I am not too sure how they will be able to fit us all in but I'm thinking we may need 3 long tables or at least 20 short ones.... That's a next year problem though Smiley tongue
