I would make a guest list of everyone you would want to invite — like everyone — and see if you can budget for that.  115 people is not THAT much more than 85.  I would do that, and go from there.  Some people will not come, remember, which will lower the total count.

In terms of reception– have you looked at the Clarendon Ballroom? They can hold large receptions, are relatively close, and were affordable.

You don’t want to put yourself into debt for a wedding REMEMBER THAT. What about something fun and informal- a bbq or a party with no formal dinner? When you don’t play into the wedding-games venues and vendors have you believe (the sit-down dinner, the videographer, the designer dress, the expensive but usually wasted favors, etc), you can save a lot of money.

Scrap the invites for the 25 people you don’t plan to invite to your reception dinner.  Inviting 85 to your ceremony when you can only host 60 at your reception is in extremely poor taste.  It’s best to just not invite those people at all.
