    I don’t know but I would have thought with such a large guest list you’ll definitely have some nos and should be ok

    Our venue had a max of 300 as well. We sent out 317 invites (including us) and 282 people came. It worked out perfectly. I wouldn’t worry too much, it’s likely out of 320, some won’t make it, some will come after dinner etc. If you sent them a STD you must send them an invite.

    A lot of people may find that impolite, but really, you will almost never get all of your guests to say yes.  I think it’s more important to be spot on your numbers when you have a smaller list where it’s more likely most people will come.   By percentage of your list, only 6.25% would “need to” say no, and most likely, you are going to be more in the 20-30% range.
