So last night FI and I visited his uncle, who has been extremely helpful in planning our wedding. Well we got on the topic of the guestlist, and seating, and food, and what not. FI and I had been debating about having open seating vs. assigned tables. He was for open seating, me... not so much. Anyway Fi's uncle backed up my assigned tables idea because he knows that our wedding is going to be a major event in the family just because people usually expect the best from FI and I, ESPECIALLY because I'm American.
So we get to talking about the numbers, and we were planning on inviting about 150 people, which is a number that we felt comfortable with. Well Fi's uncle kept reminding him of people that for sure will be there whether we invite them or not, you know how Hispanic functions go down, and we are thinking that after all is said and done, there will be well over 250-300 people there. I'm praying to god that our original number of 150 shows up for dinner, because we can only afford to feed 160 people with the 10% extra they guarantee us for unexpected guests. Hopefully everyone else shows up after dinner has been cleared out. YIKES!
Anyone else having an out of control guest list?
