Thanks, Snarky. I don't think I will fret over any details like that, either. What I'm fretting about now is that I have people I wished I would have invited and didn't, and it's too d*** late to do a thing about it. I have a tendency to rake myself over the coals for past decisions that turn out to be not-so-perfect. See, I have 38 cousins on my mom's side. I decided that 38 times 2 for spouses would have been 76 more guests, and that was too many, so I only invited the aunts and uncles on that side. But, now seeing that some of the people I thought sure would attend aren't, I could have invited them. I mean, out of 76, maybe only 30 would have come anyway. (Keep in mind that I'm writing from Wisconsin, where reception hall dinners are still relatively cheap...$14 a plate...and where it's not unusual to have 200-300 guests at your wedding dinner). As it is, we're having 160, and I'm fret-fret-fretting about it, wishing I had invited the cousins (I was invited to some of their weddings, although I would only say I would recognize about half of them if I saw them on the street). I mean, heck, we went through the work and trouble to get a DJ and hall and photographer and dress and all that, and it wouldn't have been any extra work to invite the additional people to enjoy it all with us. Sigh.
