If a package is for 50 day guests how many guests would you invite?? Our provisional guest list has 70 people but we've assumed that 55 will come due to the location, but I'm worried that they will all say yes!! Any ideas??

Our package is 50 but our venue allows for up to 80 for day guests. It will more than likely mean you will have to pay per extra guest.

We stuck to 50, dont forget that most packages include the bride and groom in those numbers too.

Hi if the package is 50 then 50 should be invited :)

It depends on the venue, at some you will be able to add extra people and others you wont. If 50 is the max then invite the 48 you most want there then have a reserve list you can invite if people decline. Good luck, there could be some tough decisions ahead!

We have this issue with the registry office. We are also hoping some don't wish to come but may have to ask some of my friends to leave their husbands (who we don't know) at home until the reception. Thank goodness it is all kept local.

Your package may be for 50 guests, but if your venue can seat more than 50 guests I would have thought you will just get charged an additional cost per person. If you are limited to 50 maximum then don't risk it and only invite 50 (or rather 48 minus the bride and groom!) - I can't think of anything more unpleasant than having to un-invite people!

Check that your venue will allow more people before you invite them all and that your budget will cover them all if they all say yes. I wouldnt assume that so many people will say no x
