Under no circumstances should you un-invite anyone. Just roll with it. And frankly, if people weren’t close enough to make your final guest list, they’re more likely to decline.

So you have to find savings:

There are tons and tons of areas to cut the budget that people won’t even notice.

– Flowers from Costco, Sams, Fifty Flowers, etc. I am ordering pre-done bouquets and bought vases at the dollar store, and a friend is going to set them up. Tons of savings

– Skip favors

– Skip engagement pictures, videographer, photo booth, second photographer, etc. You don’t need that stuff.

– Only offer beer and wine, not a full bar. This is a big savings.

– Don’t rent a limo. Just leave in one of your cars, have a friend drive you, whatever.

– Do your own makeup, nails, etc

– Delay the honeymoon.

We invited 115 and had 70 attend. (24 of whom RSVP’d yes and then no showed!) I think you guys will probably be okay. I wouldn’t stress about it until you get your numbers back.

dannielle89:  i would think 100 pp is on the low end.. At least in my city.

despite the potential $3000+ cost, I’d much rather save it up than deal with uninviting people. I couldn’t imagine having to do that, in the big picture of what a wedding costs adding $3000 seems like a far better option.
