Hello! My partner and I got engaged 2 weeks ago so we are just in the baby stages of planning our wedding for 2021.
We've made a guest list and it came out to about 130 people, not too bad. So we are now looking at reception venues (I heard that's the first thing you do) that can accommodate that many guests, mostly hotel ballrooms. But I realized, since invitations haven't been sent out, and won't be for some time, what happens if we put down a deposit on a room for 130 people, and then only 100 people can come? We could have gotten the 100 person ballroom for cheaper! But of course I don't want to book the 100 person room, expecting 30 people to decline. Do you just get the big room and hope for the best?
