Oversizing sails? Problems?

Hello,

I am building a smaller sailboat and already own a high-quality mainsail that is approximately 25% larger that the size recommended by the plans. I would love to save the money of buying a new, high-quality replacement. If I am careful to not overpower the larger sail, would I still expect other performance or safety issues?

Thanks for your comments.
