@Tswife4ever: if you want to meet your minumum then why not? Or perhaps let your parents and FI’s parents know that there is room for 15 more people? I wouldn’t invite just anyone, but if you like them and theyre genuinely nice to you then I’m sure they’ll appreciate it.

I don’t think you’ll notice on the day the difference between having 60 people or 80 people in attendance, as long as you are surrounded by the people that mean the most to you! That said, if there is a minimum spend at the reception & money is going to go to waste then why not invite some accquaintances to enjoy the day?

I’d be inclined to ask parents who they’d like to invite rather than random people from school you no longer see.  Also, you could allow your single friends to bring a + 1.

If meeting the minimum is what you’re concerned about, can you add or upgrade options to up the price once you know you don’t have enough people?  Adding a cocktail hour with passed hors d’oeuvres, a late night snack, a speciality coffee drink (or a coffee bar), a dessert bar, or an upgraded meal may do the trick and then you can just keep the list to those you have.
