    That’s hard, because you’re still far enough out that it’s really difficult to know where people will be financially in six months!

    I’d probably go with the smaller room and trim the guest list a little.

    I would probably book the smaller room and then just not invite them so you avoid the risk.  Normally I believe you should still send an invite to people who say they can’t come.. but in this case… I think you are OK to just go ahead and leave them off the list as long as your mom is OK with that option.

    I misvoted… I meant to vote for go with the smaller room! however I accidentally voted for the larger room. Good luck! I think the smaller room will be perfect

    My mom told me that my relatives would not be coming, but I sent them an invite anyway.  They all definitely did NOT come.  I would book the smaller room, trim the guest list like you did, and don’t bother to send an invite to your relatives.  If your mom already asked them if they would come and they said no, that’s an RSVP in my opinion.  Why waste the paper/postage?

    I agree with MightySapphire. Book the smaller room, and don’t send them an invite. Send them an announcement after the fact, and maybe jot a little note about how you missed them but understood why they couldn’t make it.

    I’m all about cutting costs, so I would go for the smaller room.  And even if out of the blue a few of them show you would still have some wiggle room to squeeze them into your venue.
