@Riot: This is a boundaries issue: If they can’t let you know by X date if they are helping, then they do not get to vote. Meaning, you can slash their guest lis. Really, they don’t have to help, though. It’s optional. Good luck!

Politely tell them that because of previous discussions you were counting on their funding to assist with paying for guests from their guest list.  Now that their fundng is not available you will be altering your plans to include only the guests that your budget allows.  Give them a number and tell them to slash their list till they reach that number.  If they want more people to attend they will have to fork over the bucks UP FRONT.  

ETA:  Give them deadlines.  A deadline for slashing their list and a deadline for additional funds (if they say they want that).  It seems like if you give them an inch they will take a mile.  Save yourself the headache.
