RSVP breakdowns are always fun!
I love it when bees give the hive an idea on the demographics of their guests—where they’re from, how many people are attending, how many declined, who will be coming from out of town, etc., etc. It’s such a good way to get a snapshot of the wedding and definitely does give some awesome insights into the guests and the wedding itself.
Unfortunately, that means using programs like Excel. And guys, I am really bad at Excel. Mr. Big is a pro at it, thankfully, so when I got this post underway, I turned to him for help. After some fiddling around, I managed to break down the RSVP list.
So without further ado, here’s the RSVP breakdown!
The Bighorns invited approximately 187 people to the wedding. Of the 187 people we invited, 43 of them declined, which means that our guest list sits at exactly 142 people (77% acceptance rate!). This means that approximately 23% of the people invited to our wedding declined to come.
Of the 142 people who accepted the invitation to the wedding, 98 will be attending the ceremony (69%), 58 will be attending the Chinese tea ceremony (40.8%), 26 will be going on the wine tour (18.3%), and 140 will be attending the reception (98.6%).
A total of 116 guests will be staying at the appointed guest accommodations, Crowne Plaza (81.7%), with 11 staying at other accommodations (7.7%) and 14 guests driving back home from the reception (9.9%).
