See if you can chane the date to a Sunday brunch at your venue, its usually cheaper since your serving breakfast type foods. Cut the guest list some more.

I would recommend cutting the guest list. You should set your budget to anticipate 100% attendance. I would recommend looking at other venues just in case you aren’t able to afford the venue you love. I will say that it’s a good thing that you got a quote early on in your planning process

What are you at with the decrease in guest list and change to Friday night?  $120/pp with no alcohol sounds REALLY STEEP.  Is there an exceptionally high room rental fee, or is it the actual plated meal that’s expensive?  I’m asking, because if it’s the rental than lowering your count won’t help as much as if it’s the per plate price that’s killing you. 

Does your $20,000 budget include rings and honeymoon?
