New setup, unsure about width

Hey everyone first post here, just signed up. My third season coming up and buying my first 'new' setup and want something for park. Well I think I might of rushed it and not thought it through because after reading stuff on here it seems I might of needed a wide board. Ive bought some 32 lasher boots which im happy with as they fit perfect and my old ones killed my feet but they are size 12 and im wondering if they are going to be alright on a 155 rome graft. Graft is on the way so havent had a chance to have a look yet. The Graft is 251mm wide and ive measured boots and bindings ( rome arsenals ) and they come to about 330mm. giving 79mm overhang. 20mm each side which is about 1 1/2 inchs, is this going to be too much? Also comments on the arsenals? was trying to get some 390s but just couldnt find any here in new zealand so went with the arsenals as the seasons already started and I just got back in the country and need a setup. Anyways would be good to see what ya think.

Do you ride with your feet strapped to the center of your board? Nope so who cares about the waist look at the nose/tail width then take into account how your bindings are going to raise you up. You'll probably be fine.
