Overall, do not worry that your wedding will be too big because of people verbally telling you they are coming. I got to the point where I wouldnt let myself get my hopes up until the guest bought a plane ticket and had been paid in full.
That's a little reassuring actually. I won't get my hopes up that everyone who says they'll come will actually come. and all those asking to bring a date...ha!
congrats by the way TheWolferts! I see your wedding was just a couple of weeks ago!
