# Estimating How Many Guests Will ACTUALLY Come to Your Wedding

When finalizing a guest list, every couple has to deal with the “how many guests will actually come to my wedding” question. A well-calculated answer makes things like arranging for seating, how much food to order and how manycharter bus rentals DCto book easier.

T**herefore, to help you with the calculations, we present a simple mathematical equation to come up with an estimated number.**

### Local Guests

Even if you have been a little late in sending out your wedding invitations, the likelihood of them attending your wedding is high. After thoroughly accounting for all the plus-ones; let’s say, 85% of them will attend if you invited 120.

### Out-Of-Town Guests

The decline in percentage will relatively be larger as compared to your local guest list. There may be a myriad of reasons why they would decline an invitation. If you invited 50 of them, chances are that only 60% of them will be able to actually show up. So, the safer estimate here is 60%. If you want that percentage to increase, you can always promise decent lodgings and aDc charter busfor in-town sightseeing.

### Calculating the Final Showdown

Now that you have your supposed percentages, it is time to calculate the final number.

The final equation will look something like this:

(The total number of local guests invited * 85%) + (The total number of out of town guests invited * 60%) = The number of people who will attend your wedding.

After putting the numbers in the equation, we have:

(120*85%) + (50*60%) = 132

To conclude, you will have about 132 people at your wedding.
