Q: How do we estimate how many people will come?
There are many equations out there floating around on how to estimate your guest count. Although some of these equations may come close, it is always smart to go through your guest list and estimate who will actually come, and how many people they will bring. Take into consideration weddings that have happened in the same neighborhood, and ask them how many people they had attend. The average wedding has 200-300 people attend. Factor in if your family and friends are local, the day of the week, and the accessibility of the wedding location to your guests. All of these things will affect your number.
