We invited 140,had 120 come. The other wedding on a Friday had 100 invited,85 came.

I don’t think 6 over is anything to worry about, as emergencies or other things can and do come up. I think you’re fine!

We invited 145 and 95 came. It was a sunday wedding so a lot of Out of Town guests couldn’t make it. I feel like it’s safe to say that 6 people won’t be able to make it, especially if it’s Friday afternoon.

I think the less people that you invite actually makes it more likely that a greater percentage (or all!) will come.

For example, if you are inviting 300 people, I would think that is pretty much impossible that everyone would come.

But if you are inviting under 100? Then it seems possible that every single person could make it, since you are most likely quite close to all of them (unlike in my case  random friends-of-parents, etc…)

But even if 76 people came… they probably told you 80 for like fire code or something, and I assume that it’s the church that is the tight space, not the reception? Even if a few people had to stand in the back, I wouldn’t think that a huge deal for a short ceremony. Plus, some people might skip the ceremony (especially if it’s in a church) and just come to the “party” unfortunately…

I would go ahead and invite the 6 extra people.
