Guest List

My fiance and I need to cut back our guest list. We started out with about 150 and are now up to about 220. We started cutting people off the list. We mainly cut people we dont talk to very much and people we really dont see much. I literally have started getting emails from people point blank asking me if they are getting invited, some of which I didnt intend on inviting. How do I politely tell those people I cant invite them without ruining our friendship or insulting them? We are doing a no kid reception to help with costs but still are needing to cut back some.

    It's SO beyond rude of people to be asking you if they're invited.
    All you have to say is that you haven't finalized the guest list, but you have a limited number of space in the reception room and you have to invite family before friends. 
    That much might even be too much.

    I agree. This sounds like the most polite way to respond to their rudeness.

    Fi and I are just telling people that ask or assume they're invited (which I agree is totally rude) that logistically we can't invite literally everyone we know.  Not enough room in the church, not enough room at the reception hall.  Not to mention we can't afford to invite 300 people even if we did have the room.

    I would probably just ignore them- if they are really that close to you they will know they are invited.

    This.  For me, our reception hall could only fit x number of people and FI & I have large families, so the focus was that we ONLY invited family and our closest friends.
