Elegantly scaling in-real-life events?

Is there an elegant way to scale IRL events? If more people than estimated start signing up for an event of mine, I'd like to a) get a bigger space and b) charge them less because they cost is spread out more. But what if people have already paid? How do I give some money back? What if I had to put down a non-refundable deposit for the original space?

And if less people are signing up, I'd like to scale the other way so I don't lose money.
Is guessing, keeping stats, and using the stats to improve your estimates the only way to do this? Is there some sort of wepay.com, venmo.com, paypal.com, eventbrite.com, meetup.com-like solution to at least part of this that I'm unaware of?
