We had finalized our guest list and we were content...until catering sent us an invoice. Holy fuzzballs! We were forced to cut our guest list down to at least 100 people which was really hard! What really killed us that we didn't even take into consideration was the taxes afterward!! Otherwise our original guest list would have been ok to deal with.
I hear that you should be prepared for at least what, 20% to not show up? Our fear is that just our luck we would have close to 100% if not perfect attendance especially if they had enough notice. I don't know what to do because if we start receiving declined RSVPs, that would make room again. Would it be ok to invite them then or should we just leave it alone?
Is there any good solution to this?
