How Many??

There are so many "How Many's" in the wedding planning process.  Here are a few answers.

How many guests will respond no?
We usually see a decline rate of about 20%.  Every now and then that rate is a bit higher or a bit lower, it really just depends.

How many cocktail napkins do I order?
Usually 2-3 per guest for cocktail hour and then 4-5 for use during the reception.
Extra special EBW tip:  order them without the date and you can use them later!

How many hours should it all last?
The cocktail hour should be an hour and the reception another 4 hours for a total of a 5 hour reception.  If you wish to add time then how about an after party?
