Yeah, I’m at 202 and my venue cap is 170…

We cut kids, though.

Our uncut “wish” guest list is over 250.  We had a hard time finding a venue that will hold about 200, but once we did we talked with them about having the ceremony & reception at their location (no need to have 200 people driving across town!).  We also decided to go with an afternoon wedding followd by a lunch reception to save on catering costs.  We are cutting our guest list, we are not inviting children, and our truly single friends will not get a plus one.  We are not doing A & B lists because I kind of feel like it’s telling your B people they weren’t important enough the first time around… but that works for some people.

My parents want everyone there.. so, our estimated guest list is approximately 400.  When fiance and I first got engaged, we thought we’d be somewhere around 250..  I think my jaw dropped when my parents rolled out their list, which totaled about 300.  Good thing they’re paying for their family and friends!
