    I ordered the exact number. A couple of months before my wedding my friend got married and gave a count of 10 less people. Well, those 10 people showed up and it became a disaster. Before they would start the reception they needed the money for all those meals that the bride didn’t include in her final headcount. It just caused stress and an uneccesary delay.

    Yes, bc you can’t count on someone not showing up.  So if they say they are coming, you should be able to feed them.  It sucks when ppl back out after rsvping.. 🙁

    Order the exact amount. Your venue should have a couple of “buffer meals” prepared in case a few extras show up unexpectedly or something gets sent back. the way my venue charged was either the amount ordered or the amount served, whichever was larger. just something to think about!
