The Price Is Right

L, her mother and I have a little bet going. Last night we made estimates on how big the guest list will be and, in the style of The Price is Right, the winner will be the person who guesses closest to the correct amount without going over. (No word on prizes, although if either L or I win, word is that we'll receive an all-expense paid wedding.)

So, with all of you as our witnesses, here are our estimates:

Me: 217 guests.
L: 252 guests.
L's mom: 233 guests.

I've been accused of lowballing the estimate, but I think my strategy will pay off. No matter what, it's going to be a big party.

Well, it's not like you're one of those $1 bidders. :)

How many invites were sent out?

The number of invites we sent out isn't really the right yardstick since a number of those went to couples or families. Less than 200 invites were actually mailed, I believe.

I say 222. And that is one big wedding!

Okay, we have Jen down for 222. And what can I say? We're just that popular.

I didn't know you planned to list my guess! I would have picked 218 if I had known that, because I think L. is way over. Well we'll knbow soon how we did.
