RSVPs - Final Numbers

So I have managed to wrangle up the last of our RSVPs! We have 64 comming! Which is huge considering we only invited 70 and its a destination wedding! How are you ladies going? Any interesting RSVP stories to tell?

Oh yeah! We invited about 115 expecting about 100 to show. We were very strict with our list bc we didn't want to go over budget so we had to make a decision to not invite our cousins. We both have huge families and most of our cousins are older than us. Anywho I get two of my aunts RSVP cards back and they're bringing 10 extra people! I just about died! My dad called them to tell them the cousins and grandkids can't come and they are not happy!! So christmas should be loads of fun! :(
we pretty much have them all back now and we should end up with about 101.

Holy Torledos batman! 10 Extra people!? Thats just nuts! I've seriously never understood how people think it's OK to just invite themselves to weddings! We had to cut some of my cousins out - I havent seen them since I was 6 so I didnt think this would be an issue but apparently they're not impressed. I mean I dont even know where they live or remember all their names! Crazy how weddings can bring out the worst in people!

I really, really wish we had cut more people out. I already originally cut out some of my FI's grandfather's very distant family from Oklahoma out early on and his mom got pretty upset about that. Now, I am SOOOOO glad I did because we invited 210 people and 190 have RSVP's yes and my venue charges for each person over 150. My FI even said last night that he wished they had just listened to me and cut more out. I think its ridiculous that I had to invite people on his grnadmother's side of the family that I have never met. Plus, on top of all that, I've had a few people just add someone in when I never gave them a plus one or included their kids on the invite.

Wahoo!!! Some cards back, loads of calls, texts and emails and the final number is 74 adults, 4 children!  Not bad as our list was 85 adults and 11 children!


Myself and FI only wanted 70ish guests and were great at keeping just under that number until both sets of parents got a hold of the list lol
