This is pretty much the first you'll be hearing from me on wedding things, but I need your help!!
B and I have pretty much gotten the guest list worked out. It's the "I wish" list, basically, so by the time the wedding roles around I'll probably cut the list by a few choice names. Right now, the list is at about 315. I have a feeling that before cuts, it'll probably be somewhere around 335 or 340. I'm going to try to keep it under 325. Most of the list is family (we both have huge families) and most live within an hour of here. Out of this number, how many/what percentage should we really expect to show up?? What did you all plan for out of your entire guest list? Did it work?
And also, when you sent out invitations what did you go by? I always thought it was anyone over 18 gets their own invitation and a guest invite, even if they were living at home. B's family thinks it's one per household, no matter how old the people are who live there. What did you do?
Also, I need color help. I think, think, I want yellow. It'll be a summer wedding, so I want something bright such as this yellow. B will be in his uniform, which is dark blue, so we'll use dark blue as the accent color for the flowers and such. However, we still need another main color to go with yellow but also look good with the dark blue. I don't really want another really dark color since it's summer and we already have the dark blue, but I also don't really want anything "faded" (i.e. lavender, pale blue, etc.). Any suggestions??
My eternal love to anyone that can help! :o)
