@TequilaSunrise: Make an A list and B list.

Send A list invites out first (this is your 111 list) with an earlier RSVP date. After you get more than 11 no’s then start sending out the B list invites.

B list-ers never have to know they were B list. Just have a different (later) RSVP date for them.

Can you wait until the no RSVPs start coming in and then re-evaluate? You might not even be allowed to have more than 100 people in there legally because out would be a fire hazard.

@TequilaSunrise: Hmm… I’d say a few more but not a lot more. About 15% of people who rsvp yes will still be no shows. Hope that helps 🙂

You should send out invitiations as if every person is going to come. and then send out extras as the no’s come in.  Going over a little is okay since you most likel;y won’t get 100% attendance, but sending out a lot of extras could get you into trouble.
