Threatening Wedding Crashers!

Recommended Posts

FI and I made the mistake of inviting one of his cousins and not the other two. We're just closer to he and his girlfriend and thought it wouldn't be that big of a deal.

 

Well, invited cousin cannot attend, so we basically opened up a can of worms for nothing. Since making our guest list, we've grown closer to the other two cousins and would actually like them to be there. One tiny problem though...our villa can only accommodate up to 40 people for the reception. We have invited 56 people, 5 definitely cannot go, a few haven't said much, but almost everyone has talked about already receiving their passports in the mail and booking their tickets. We're on track for an 85% positive responds rate (which we should've expected because FI's family and friends travel to other countries together all the time). So we're already pushing the numbers.

 

This past weekend we were at a wedding, and one of FI's cousin comes up to me, saying she and her sister have figured out a plan. They're going to crash our wedding! If we were having this at an AI, I'd totally have them there, but there just isn't any room for them. What kills me is that I would love to have them there though. I totally didn't know what to say to her! AUGH!!!

The problem isn't a place to stay. Only about half of our guests are staying at the villa. The problem is that we're actually having our reception on the deck of the villa. Between the band and having room to dance, it can only accommodate 40 people. I'm trying to get creative on this one. Like maybe have dinner somewhere else and then come back for partying and dancing, this way we wouldn't have to have a bunch of big tables and chairs set up and there would be more room. I'm afraid having dinner at a restaurant will take too long and make people tired though. Hmmm...Looking for suggestions!

I'd just ask them - guarantee all you've asked won't book and then you'll be within your numbers - don't worry about it now just wait until next year then come up with a plan lol I bet you'll be ok with 41 or 42 if push comes to shove lol

You will probably still have some guests that have said they are coming back out so you will probably have room to squeeze them in. I'd say you should still invite them if you really want them there. Even if it is a little tight once people start drinking and get up to dance no one will notice.
