I wouldn’t risk it. You never really know until the RSVP’s are all said and done with. Either limit guest list (which is extreamly hard) or, pick a larger venue. It’s not worth the worry.

I have a similar problem but my list is 109 and my venue can seat 100 so it’s not that bad. I’m still debating if I invite everyone and hope 9 don’t show up… or just hold off on sending a few of the invites until I get a no rsvp back.

I’d look at the list and prioritize people into an A B & C list. Remove the C list people. Invite 160 A list people. If you get a few no’s back… send B list invites. Send the first set of invites out earlier than ‘normal’ so you have extra time.  You really only have 25 people to eliminate so it’s not that bad.  Just make sure you’re adding yourself, your bridal party, parents etc into your counts. And consider making sure there’s room for vendors to eat!
