So i sent the invites out for our wedding and i got a lot of replys back.. right now 70 people are coming... thats way more than we were expecting.. we sent out 80 invites but expecting only 40 people to come... alot of the invites were courtesy invites.. ( people in the family we don't talk to that much but felt obligated to invite) so im stressing out about renting chairs and the cost of that plus the cost of food since we are doing it ourselves... We are roasting a pig for the reception and have pulled pork that is free to us since matts uncle does this for living... but we have to cover all the costs of the sides.. we decided on mac n cheese, baked beans corn on the cob.. and potato chips things of that nature... does anyone know how much food i would have to make to feed 70 people (just the side dishes) The place we are getting married at is free and the reception local is 75 bucks so pretty cheap... i just did not expect 70 people to be coming... i should have never sent out that many invites.. but matts mom said i should send them out as 'courtesy' invites... so i did not expecting them to actually want to come .. I have never even met these people!! ahhh!
So im just stressing out big time!
