The sad, sad guest list

With this whole wedding business, I'm getting exposed to new wedding jargon that I find myself using in everyday speech. Here's the term that's bothering me the most these days:

Guarantee: the minimum number of guests that you agree to pay for at your wedding reception. This is a number that you have to be confident about because if you slip below your guarantee on the night of your reception, you still have to pay for the minimum number of guests. Also, you can't just pick a number out of thin air. Ballrooms have a maximum number that they hold and a minimum. Usually the site will pick the guarantee number and you need to meet it. Argh, it's all a tricky business.

I find myself completely depressed because I don't know if we'll be able to meet the guarantee to use the super pretty, big ballroom at Fox Hollow. What happens when two antisocial wallflowers get married? Their families use up a majority of the guest slots because Wallflowers 1 and 2 don't have enough friends. It's a sad, sad situation. The difference between The Garden Terrace and the Colonial Briar Fox is like the difference between Jacques Torres and Russel Stover. (That was for you, Moonie.)

Sigh. I want the pretty pretty room.

ok, ok. we can do this. TRUST me. we can...umm...add an "i heart filipinos wedding" theme and get lots of benevolent wannabes who show up for the karaoke machine. we can even collect toothbrushes.

oo oo. or. remember the bakesale? we can have the bakesale to raise money to cover the bigger room, and THEN as a bonus we can raffle off tickets to the wedding, thereby padding the guestlist while supporting the whole endeavor financially!

no russell stovers, blue. PROMise me. you may be a wallflower but you have secret friends everywhere. and we will find them. yes we will.

(you got me all ramped up now by the mention of jacques.)

If we start coming up short I think we should start selling tickets to random strangers or...

if we wanted to we could hand out make up (i.e. Groucho Marx glasses/moustache) so people can get seconds.

Yeah, that's what we'll do.

You've got some good ideas here, people.

If we run short, I have no problem with walking into the kitchen and asking them to doggy bag a bunch of Chateaubriands. Poochie, Eliza, Darcy, and Popeye can at least have a good meal out of this too!
