@MissDareDevil: Ahhh! We are inviting around 220 as well. My mom keeps saying that only 180 or so will come. My dad and I keep trying to bring her back to reality. I’m going to show her this post.

Holy cow!

We haven’t gone through it yet, but based on the response to our STD’s, I am very nervous.  I hope you can figure it out; maybe reduce the number of passed appetizers and funnel those savings to the extra dinners?  Slim down centerpieces? Go to wine & beer versus full open bar?  I’m thinking ahead since I’m worried I’ll be in your shoes in a few months.  Good luck!

So far everyone has said yes for us too. But we didn’t invite a lot in the first place. Just wait until the day of when like 5 people don’t show up. I’m waiting for that to happen to us.

I am very surprised that that many people committed. I hope that that stands true though instead of you paying for them and then having no shows.

@xshellx2003: Ugggghhh. I will NOT be happy if that happens.

Or if this happens: At my cousin’s wedding a few years ago a couple showed up without RSVPing. It was a semi-formal sit down dinner. They came in wearing jeans and like sports jerseys. The wait staff had to squeeze them in at a random table. It was awful.

@TinyTina: I hope people like that realize what an embarrassment they are. I also hope they realize how rude it as and they are embarrassed for their rude behavior.

@His Lil SantosGirl: Eeeep!! Here’s hoping that doesn’t happen to you. I was so worried about having too many people that I made sure we booked a venue that could hold 300 *just in case*. (Doesn’t mean I want to pay for all those people though! :-P)

@MsBrooklynA: Ugh, I hope so too. I felt so bad for the Bride and Groom… 🙁
