I am now to that point of wedding planning where we need to finalize our guest list! As it sits right now I have 220 guests on it.
We are having our wedding in Wisconsin - since my FI and I live there. However, most of our guest list (with the exception handful of guests) are all out of state.
The cost of the wedding is being split between my Dad and step mom, my step dad, my mom, my fiance's family, my fiance and me.
I have a large family and we are a close family so all of my aunts, uncles and first cousins will be invited since I talk to them on a regular basis - there are some long time HS friends on there along with a couple of co workers. Where I'm running into snags is with the Great aunt's and uncles (parent's aunts and uncles) They (my parents) say to send them invites because they won't come anyways, but I'm afraid of all 220 showing up because it is not in our budget to feed all 220 of them. I've looked over the list a few times now and don't know where else to cut.
I know all the boards say plan for 100%, so I'm assuming there is no magic percentage that I can use to estimate how many will actually come........any advice on what to do or who to cut?
