I totally hear you. But the good news is that as much as we all freak out (night sweats, hard ball in the stomach, hypervenitation = check!), I think that this is something that will take care of itself. At least, it certainly seems to pretty regularly. I don’t know if there are any posts out there saying “we were completely over capacity and it ruined everything”, but if there are I haven’t seen them. Don’t worry, it’s going to work out just fine 🙂

That’s got to be very frustrating….

We actually talked with all of our parents AND grandparents that we wouldn’t be able to accomadate adding people to our lists.

Both sides of parents are helping pay for the wedding but my Fiance and I decided that since the day is for us and not for our Mom’s co-workers, friends, etc that we’d just explain that and stick to it…

I couldn’t imagine how HUGE our list would’ve gotten with those.. We have 160 adults/200 with children just from the list we made.. EEK!

Psh. Seriously. What is it with FMIL’s and “I already told you….” statements?

Deep breath! I think we have all dealt with this! Why the FMILs decide to invite THE MOST RANDOM PEOPLE EVER – I have no idea. Seriously FMILs and FFILs bosses are invited, their neighbors at the lake where we are having our wedding, their freakin interior decorate for goodness sake!! FFILs roommate from college, FMILs cousin that I have never even heard of before (and Fiance has never met!) honestly where does it stop. Why do people feel like weddings are a free for all!? But, let me just say that I dealt with all of these issues before and they are working themselves out. Started out with 215 invited and our venue  can only hold 150! We only have 107 coming and our deadline is today! And granted we havent heard from quite a few people but I really think we might be right at 150 or right under so I am not worried at this point! Just have to take a deep breath, try to stay calm and rememebr that everything will come together beautifully!
