I think you should have a second tier list of people you can invite just in case

MrsBlackCat:  I think that sounds like a safe number. With a small guest list, you will have a higher response rate than if you were inviting 200 people.

Are you counting you and your fiance? Don’t forget that you count as guests too. 🙂

With that said, what’s the worst that can happen? Presumably the venue doesn’t care how many guests are actually in the room, they care that you pay them enough to make it worth their while. Usually you can just upgrade your food/beverages in order to meet the minimum.

I don’t like the idea of a secondary list. Someone is going to find out that they weren’t a first pick. I think most venues would charge you for 60 people even if 55 show up,bc that was the minimum. So if you’re comfortable spending more,send out more invites to cover the ones you already know probably won’t attend. The venue won’t not do your wedding bc 60 didn’t show…well that’s how it works here at least lol
