I’m such an idiot! I forgot to consolidate my address spreadsheet with the wedding guest list. So as I’m adding the ppl to teh guest list that I was planning on inviting, I realized I’m way over teh 200ppl max that Fiance and I agreed on. We are currently at 260.
Please reassure me what the rule is again of how many ppl will not be coming? Only about 30% are Out of Town the rest are local. We only budgeted for 200ppl…now I”m freaking out. 🙁
Fiance is being wonderful about it but I feel awful and all these ppl are ppl I do want to invite so I can’t delete them. I just hope that some are unable to make it.

Have you already sent invitations?
We actually had to cut our list in HALF after asking for addresses!… Most of them are people we see atleast on a weekly basis! totally sucks so I know the predicament…
for us though.. out of the 98 we’ve only gotten like 12 no’s and a couple still not sure
If you haven’t sent invites yet.. I might go ahead and make the “cut” (ouch) but otherwise I would just prepare for anything and go with it =)

@runsyellowlites: I’m planning to send the Out of Town ones next week. But for everyone else, I plan on doing it in April. It sucks that I’m hoping some ppl can’t come. 🙁

Awww…. I’m sorry you’re in this. I know it’s super stressful!
We actually had the PARENTS of one of our friends who is invited ask us to confirm the date… that’s right… their daughter got an invite and THEY’RE gonna come!
And another friend who is now kinda distant and moved out of state (was not invited) just asked me when it was so maybe they could make it! ARRRRGH
Oh well… it’ll all work out! Just keep telling yourself that 😉

@Ms. Sparkles: We’ve had to add people to the list and going over who I’m pretty sure won’t come… it elimanates only a dozen or so. and I’m hoping only HALF come, because we’re currently at over 200!!!! UGH!!!
hope it all works out for you!!!!!

I think my problem is that when people ask if they are invited, I don’t have the heart to say “no.” So my question, is if I said “yes of course you are invited” should I still invite them or hope they forget??? I feel bad asking this question. : p

I think if you say they’re invited you’re kinda stuck… (per etiquette anyways)
I did have to tell a handful of people that we had to cut the list… it really sucked!
They understood though and told me to send them pics
*felt like poop*
