Response: In a situation like yours, it may be best to tell the bride and groom that you will provide a certain amount of money toward the costs of the reception to be spent as they choose. That way, they can either pay for the extra guests, cut the guest list, or choose a less expensive menu. By placing the burden on the bride and groom, you have done your part in giving them what you can afford. They can take it from there, particularly if they are paying for the wedding.
