I think you should slash $ from other budget areas to make room for everyone you have invited, because everyone you sent a STD to, must receive an invitation.

Cut back on anything that you can. Don’t disinvite guests. Maybe cheaper food? Limited bar? No DJ? Anything except disinviting guests.

Remember too there will be a percentage of people you invite that won’t be able to make it. How many people do you need to cut?

I think this depends on how many people you’re talking about. For instance, we sent out actual invitations to 146 people, and ended up with 82 guests on he actual day.  If you’re just a few over I’d use the stds as a way to put out feelers as to who is actually really planning to attend and from there you’ll be able to tell how much you’ll have to scale back (if at all!). But no you can’t uninvite people at this point.

I agree with PP – you never know how many people are actually going to show up!  And I’ll also second cutting costs wherever else you can–flowers are super expensive, and you could also nix favors.  But I agree that if you sent a STD, you’ve got to send an invitation (and secretly pray some people won’t be able to come).

I really wouldn’t dis-invite anyone… I’m sure you can save money elsewhere! Good luck.

A friend of mine who got married last year confessed that she sent Save-The-Date Cards to people she never ended up sending invites to, because she and the fiance simply ended up deciding against inviting them… Not saying it’s something Miss Manners would approve of, but it wouldn’t be the end of the world….

You absolutely should revisit your budget and see where you can find extra money to accommodate yourfull guestlist. It is rude to not sent an invitation to someone who received a STD.theywill know they were “cut” when they don’t receive an invitation.
