I think I screwed up - I need suggestions and vibes...

Our wedding is less than 4 months away.  I did not put together a "real" guest list before I set my budget (doh!).  I just found a place we liked and said "ok, we can invite 'x' people".  But...  now that I'm actually doing the real list, we are about 25-30 guests over the limit and there's nobody we can cut.  Can't change the venue again (I'm still hoping to get my deposit back from the first venue) and I am officially starting to freak out. 

Ladies, I appreciate any suggestions and positive vibes...

    Do you think with the "not attending" responses you get back that, that will cover the extra people you have? Did you ask the venue if your over on guests are they able to accomodate them somehow? Im sure it will all work out, knottie vibes sent your way!

    Is your wedding out of town?  How many people are you inviting total?  I invited about 130 people and 30 people couldn't make it but my wedding was out of town for most people.  A couple people also didn't show up on the day of the wedding even though they RSVP'd.

    Im kinda in that situation... I really should have did a better search before iI deposted... and i should have divided the total cost by the number of people Im inviting... im paying $80/person. Not what I would have went with had I payed attention.

    Knottie vibes your way.

    Thanks for the vibes Ladies!

    It would be so much easier if it were a space thing but it's a budget thing.  I honestly thought we could keep the list at 100-110...

    Well, knock off the +1 for some people, only married, engaged or longterm relationship and no kiddes. Will that help?

    Sorry to hear about your dilemma. I agree with mahoganieyes and ommitting the +1 for some guests.
