My dilemma is this: My first deposit was due January 23 and we got a great response from that (moreso than expected). Thing is, our wedding package allows for 20 people to eat at the reception dinner and we are already at 25 paid first deposits! Each additional person is $45, So far that is only $225 and we can eat that (yikes) but I am scared that people will try to come last minute, especially since we have so much time left!
I am sure you see where I am going with this. How will I "gracefully" turn people away I do not want to be tacky, but I am getting stressed out about this BIG time. We REALLY do not have money in the budget to pay for anyone else.
How do I handle this?!!!!

I would suggest coming up with a budget with different categories : ceremony/reception, rings, travel/hotel, dress/attire, invites/std etc and figuring out how much you would like to spend in each area. Think about what you think is important. For example, we decided to splurge on a great photographer but we may not have floral centerpieces. In the beginning we created a budget and ( so far) we've been good with not going too crazy. I hope this doesn't change as time gets closer. I've been holding off buying little items that may add up( decor, favors, oot stuff) until we get a better sense of how many ppl will attend. We've had quite a few say they would like to come but only time will tell.
