Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
Monday I will have the last of my Save the Dates mailed out, and after getting the final guest list from FH, his parent, my parents, and my list we have a guest list of 304....OMG how did I let this get soooo out of control???
FMIL is not expecting the majority of her family to show because they live out of state. But they only live 2-4 hours away + we sent out Save the Dates which gives them time to plan if they really want to come.
Sorry for rambling....here is the PROBLEM when we booked our venue we guaranteed 85 ppl, and reserved the smaller room. Once I called to check the max the room could hold I was informed 150 in that room would be tight. The rep from the venue asked how big was our guest list and when I told her she said there is no way we would be able to have our reception in the room we reserved with that big of a guest list and put a larger room on hold for me. NOT A PROBLEM RIGHT...WRONG
FH is dead against going into the larger room because he does not think that we will have more than 120 ppl show. & wants to wait until we get the RSVP's back to make the final determination...me on the other hand I would feel more comfortable with getting the larger room now that way if we have over 120-150 ppl RSVP YES we will be OK for sure and not have to worry last minute if the larger room is available.
Ladies what should I DO??????
