    If it was me, I’d just let the number go down a little and see where you end up. 44 people does not sound terribly too small to me. However, if there are other friends/relatives who you previously didn’t invite just because of the amount of people you were having, but would love to have them there, then now would definitely be a time to invite them. I just don’t think the only reason to do so is because you’re worried about how the guest list will look.

    If there are people you would have liked to invite but you didn’t initially to keep the numbers down I’d invite them. But I wouldn’t go overboard. And if you want to extend an invite to your boss that is always a nice thing to do.

    I’d say keep it small unless there were people on your “B list” that you really wanted there but didn’t invite them because of numbers constraints. Basically, invite more if you originally really really wanted them there, but don’t pad the numbers with filler people.

    ETA: looks like great minds think alike, lol
