Im getting married at The Manor. It looks like we are going to be a little under our guaranteed number of guests. We booked it so far in advance that I didn't realize a lot of people were gonna say no. We had guaranteed 125, invited 141, and even with counting our vendors into the mix, we are only going to have 116. I know that's not terrible, but still thats an extra 9 people we are going to have to pay for.
So I guess my question is, I know it is in our contract that we have to pay for 125, and I totally understand that, but is there any possibility I would be able to do any last minute negoating with this? Even if that means giving up something during the reception? Did anyone have a similar experience?
