I am having our wedding reception at a hotel and my contract includes for 150 guests. Do we count ourselves, bride and groom in this number or is this usually complimentary since we are not the guest?
I sent my catering manager an email about this and they said our meals are not free so we have to include ourselves in the "guest count" for food. My friend said her reception at the country club said she didn't have to include herself and the groom in her count.
