i definitely wish we had more nos, although ours are still trickling in (not due till Aug 12) because of that, Im guessing people will wait till the last minute. I dont feel guilty at all because we invited a huge amount…I dont want a lot of them there

We’re unfortunately receiving more “No”s than we’d anticipated.  We originally thought the wedding would be around 90, but it looks like it’ll be closer to 75 — MAYBE 80.  It definitely stinks that people we wanted to attend can’t…but it sounds like your 10 additional guests won’t add too much craziness to the party, right?

We haven’t sent invites out yet but I’m hoping for a lot of no’s! And I don’t feel guilty! I want to keep things as small as possible, and if i can keep costs down, than that would be a big plus too.

I definitely was in that position. I had 290 guests and all I wanted was a maximum count to be a total of 250. As of today, I am under hall minimum of 200 at 195 =) with only 12 more people to respond (oh and deadline was 7/27). I don’t know how it happened but I am very thankful!!

I wouldn’t mind some specific NO’s (JK!)

At first I was dissapointed by no’s but now I am seeing it as making the seating arrangements easier.  If we have exactly 200 people, I HAVE to fit everyone perfectly at 10 to a table.  If we end up with 180-190, we will still have 20 tables and it will be easier for me to make seating arrangements with some tables having 8-9 people!
