I know what you mean.  We ended up inviting about 100 and only had about 30 people come to the wedding.  It made me sort of sad that some many people didn’t go.

just keep in mind that you’ll still have over 100 people there, which is no small group!  and like you said, they will be the ones who REALLY want to be there which will make things so much more meaningful.  i think it will be awesome.  you’re going to be getting so much attention on your big day, there is no way you’ll feel like that sad little 8-year-old.  you’ll be a star!

And 100 is enough people that you’ll be too busy to think about who is not there!

It’s going to be great!

Oh my gosh, I seriously had a b-day when I was growing up and nobody showed up!  It was terrible.  I had only invited five people, but still. 

I am feeling crummy about my guest list too.  Our venue can hold no more than 150, so we invited 145.  All of these people had told me how excited they were to come, blah blah blah.  And now about 85 are coming.  I am terribly disappointed because we put all of this planning and effort into it and it is like nobody is making the effort.  Some people have good excuses, but a lot of FI’s family lives closeby and basically told me that they just didn’t want to come!  Seriously?  You live like 10 minutes away?  My own stinking brother has yet to commit to coming or not.  We planned all of these additional family events because everyone said it would be like a big reunion, but I guess not anymore.
