@MrsBen:  Yikes.  I don’t think I could invite more than the venue would hold.  They say that on average there is a 20% decline rate on your RSVPS, but that’s certainly not guaranteed.

That’s tough because you don’t really know…

Have you thought about doing A and B lists? As in when one person declines you invite another. I know it’s kind of uncomfortable but so is not having seats for everyone. 

How long is your ceremony?

@MrsBen:  and how do you have 185 ppl already invited to your November wedding? Is this a potential guest list only or have these ppl been given a save the date or otherwise told they’d be invited? if they’ve been given save the date or invited before picking a venue, that’s tricky because you’ll need to invite them all. I think you’d need to take those numbers into account before choosing venue unless it’s destination or something different and you know for sure 30 or so definitely won’t come
