Are there any cuts that you can make? Have you talked to any of the guests to see if any for sure cannot come? I would just stress that everyone would be coming and then not have enough room.

I would make sure all 75 people could fit before I invited everyone. It sounds like they would, it just might not be as “comfortable” as otherwise! It’s *very* unlikely you would get all 75 coming (even without a destination wedding) but I would want to be on the safe side! Also, considering your date is 2 years away you could easily change your mind on some of the guests 🙂

For a “typical” reception, the industry standard is that 20% decline the invitation. I’d imagine (though you other bees can correct me if I am wrong) that a destination wedding would be similar.

I think if you can have 70 based on seating charts then you’re probably okay. Chances are you’ll have at least 5 people who can’t make it.
