Breathe. $3000 is a lot of money but it’s not the end of the world. Is there anything left in your budget to put toward this? Would parents on either side be willing to chip in at all?

People love you!  that’s all you can really say – they want to be with you to celebrate your wedding!

Unfortunately, it’s the nature of the beast when you invite more than your really intended.m

Wow that’s pretty unusual!  You still might have some people back out at the last minute, so maybe you won’t have to spend the whole $3000?

Can you see if you can work out a deal with the venue (or whomever’s charging you the extra money)? Of course they wouldn’t be obligated to accomodate it, but no harm in simply saying asking.

@MrsLulu:  I’m pretty surprised that out of 130 people 100% RSVPed yes. That is crazy odds. Natalieh86 is right, some may back out last minute, but good for you being prepared with your last minute fund! Calling the venue is a great idea, fingers crossed they work with you.

@MrsLulu:  Or maybe they’ll suggest other non-essentials you can cut to help offset the costs. I hope it works out for you!!

wow, that’s a lot of $$.  why do you have to pay for an overage?  dinner is $300/head??  that’s steep.

here’s your puppy…

Breathe.

My grandmother orchestrated many formal events in her day, and she always said to underestimate the number of attendees once people have replied.

There will inevitably be a few people who RSVP “yes” that will not show. . .or so my grandmother used to say.

I had more than 10 people not show up to my wedding who did RSVP yes… So there’s hope! 🙂

Does your venue allow for last minute add ons? Like 48 hours before the event?

My venue allowed for added people but I couldn’t decrease the number of adults once I confirmed. My wedding planner advised that I cut the number by about 10 people to accommodate those last minute no’s. In the end it worked out perfect as I had 8 people back out so I added 2 adults at the 48 hour limit.

I would perhaps stick with the 120 adult number until absolutely necessary and right before your event.
