You have to plan for your maximum attendance since you won’t know your final numbers until 3-4 weeks prior to the wedding.  So if you’ll be inviting 120, you really have to only look at venues that could accomodate that.  You can’t bank on people RSVPing no or you’ll end up putting yourself in a really tight spot when you don’t have enough space for your guests.

I think you should decide first how big of a wedding you want.  For instance, I thought I wanted a big wedding when I first began searching for a venue.  When I decided on the venue, I decided to make my wedding smaller than I had planned but only by around 50 people.  That decision was made as a result of the money that the venue costs!

My experience was to pick the venue that I couldnt live without and make it work!

Ditto what FutureKMM said. If for some reason you receive a bunch of “No’s” you can always just be glad you’re saving the money. Or send out invites to your “B List”.
