BTW- 8 down, 50 more to go!

Just as a quick update, with the Save the Dates out about a month now we have heard about 9 people that will not be able to make the wedding (4 couples, 1 child). It is awful but I am relieved. One couple I am sad about but they have a VERY good reason. The Save the Date went out to 259 people (meaning number of people that would be invited with those STDs, dates, etc) and my dream goal is exacty 200 people which is what our minimum is (yes, I included FH and I). I think we are in good shape because so many people are from out of town. If, by chance we get a lot of "no's" I am not worried, we are well prepared with a b-list of people that definitely should have been on an a-list if we didn't both have such huge families.
Anyway, just something I was thinking about and thought I would share.

I am also going to be a Mrs in May and your countdown scares me!

259 people is one heck of a guestlist, you must be a popular gal! We are sending out our invites soon and keeping our fingers crossed that we get plenty of 'nos', how awful is that.

Our guest list is similar and to be honest, sadly, i think we'll be cheering when we get some "No"s back ! I feel ya!

I know sounds like a ton, and well it is but let me just start with this, my mother is the youngest of 10 children!!! And that is just my mother's side, 2 of the other 3 sides are huge as well. It gets out of hand - quickly :) :)

I'm so happy to hear someone mention about the yays & nays to the save the dates! I am also hoping that I get some rsvp type responses to our save the dates that I am mailing out this month. It's so helpful to know before spending additional on invites!
