Curious- Guest Lists/Invites

My fiance and I are currently compling our guest list together and getting things all organized in that department before we call down to Disney World and see if we can get this Disney wedding rolling!

I was curious though- how many people did you invite to your wedding in Disney World and how many actually came? (From out of state aka people that don't live in Florida!) We are located in Maryland.

We invited about 120 and 55 came to the wedding. Those 55 were people that we really wanted to be there. People like my Dad's 2nd cousin did not show up.

I'll just be the one to step out there and say that a lot more are coming than we originally thought. We sent out 130 newsletters (to families) and now our guest list is pushing 200. We thought that only like 80 would come at the most, but everyone seems to want to come to Disney. Now, these are just pre rsvp's, so we'll see how many show up. But I would be careful to send out information to people that you don't think will come because they will!

We're inviting 24, and 20 are coming.

We have one set of grandparents who haven't traveled in years because of health and cousin who won't make it because it's too soon after her own wedding and won't have enough vacation time.

We invited 75 guests & aprox 55 guests came-it was actually alot more than we expected, considering we got married near Christmas. We were happy for a smaller wedding

We invited 60 (all family) and about 35 came (minus 3 last minute cancellations.) It was mostly cousins that couldn't make because of money/work/etc. It worked out perfectly because our reception was in The Attic, which only seats 30-something. If any more came, we would've been in trouble!
Only 25 or so made it to the dessert party, but that's another story...

My DF and I are inviting 31 guests for our October wedding - all out of state (including us). We decided on just immediate family, his grandparents, and a few very close friends - the people we will look back in 10 years and be happy were there.

We invited 55, and 32 attended. About 2/3 were located in California, with the rest scattered around the country.

We invited 45 (we gave absolutely everyone the option to bring a date, including his two aunts who live together (they're not sisters)) and 27 came. We actually expected 25 and got 2 unexpected (but a very pleasant surprise) yeses. Everyone out of state, mostly from New York.

We invites 230 (with a lot of & guests to people that didn't really have a bf/gf). Talking to people throughout the process, I was estimating 170 were coming because so many people said they were coming. When it came down to it, we are at 118. The flight prices shot up and a lot of people bailed. We are mostlyl in the NYC area.
