We did that!  We were down to the wire and weren’t sure if we were going to meet our minimums so we basically told some of my husband’s work friends that they could come and eat our free food!

Oh man! You’re so lucky, I hope I can have around 70 ppl at my wedding, but i just doesnt seems possible (FI family is HUGE) lol

If it were me, I would extend a verbal invite. I dont know how etiquette says you should do it, but I dont really see anything wrong with it. I guess as long as they have all the correct info.

OMG I want to send out “B list” (I know, that term sounds bad) invites soooooo badly!  But I’m not certain of the actual numbers yet… people are holding out on responding!  Kinda annoying… Grrrr.  Yell

I might also (if you want to give them something) get a box of DIY invites at Michaels and print them off – they are pretty quick to print and assemble!

I would make more invitations but less formal. You can pick some up at Michaels for cheap and hand out about 20 more invites. I am 30 and probably would not care if someone verbally told me But I think they are more likely to come with an invite:)

I am really really nervous of this happening! 

My mom is really into the formalities and in most cases, so am I, but I think that if we don’t get enough “yes” reply cards then we will just send them to some people late…and the people we will do that to won’t be the types who know about the proper ettiquite anyways Embarassed

If they don’t mind the informality then I don’t see why not!

I don’t really see anything wrong with inviting them verbally. Alternatively you could pick up a few blank invitations from Target or something and print or fill them out yourself. That way they have an invitation even if it is different from your original invites. Good luck!

I know that there are some inexpensive ways to make a formal invitation that you could design with email responses or even a phone call to you to give you an opportunity to do a quicker head count!
