Wedding Tip of the Week – 80/20 Rule

Creating a guest list for your wedding can be a daunting task.  Especially if you are trying to cut the guest list to fit into a certain venue or to stay within a specific budget.  My best advice is don’t assume people won’t come.  There will be a few long lost relatives that you never imagined in a million years would show and they are the first to send back the RSVP and even a few you assumed would be a shoe-in that reply no-go.

A great rule of thumb is the 80/20 rule – 80% of the guests you invite, will attend.  Of course this will depend where guests are coming from, etc but it is scary how well the formula works.

So make sure you get a venue that is large enough to host your wedding and budget on the side of caution to eliminate uneccessary stress as invites go out and the RSVPs roll in.

Happy Planning!
