I guess this is more of a vent. Found out yesterday that a good friend of the family is not attending our wedding because he decided to make a vegas trip with his gf. To further find out he actualyl didnt open the wedding invitation and it was my FI’s parents that RSVP’d on his behalf cause they assumed he would come no matter what. THEN today, groomsmen and wife are no longer bringing their two children. My sister is now dating a guy(2 weeks) and wants him to come to the wedding as well. Again, rsvp date was over a month ago. How do people not get it!
I know there is nothing i possible can do now, unfortunatley there will be empty spots and thats just the way the cookie crumbles. Just is so fustrating when your wedding date has been know for two years and people neglect to share!!
Anyone else dealing with this days before their big day? Or dealt…

Nikkimcq: We had a few no-shows and some wishy washy attendees.
Then, to top it off, my venue put an extra 2 chairs at each table when I had given them an exact count at each table. It looked like about 36 people ditched instead of 4.
Some things, you can’t control.

Nikkimcq: We had one flat out no show. There was no call ahead of time or anything, he just didn’t show up. In fact, this guest only wanted to attend our wedding because his daughter was going to be there and he’s never met his granddaughter. We were originally going to have a child free wedding, but I decided that we would make an exception for her. To be honest, I wasn’t thrilled that he was using our wedding as a family reunion, but I didn’t feel like my wedding was “all about me/us” so we just rolled with it. At the end of the day, you’re getting married to the love of your life and the rest just shouldn’t matter (even if it’s kind of annoying lol).

nadnuk: oh no! But you are right, somethings you just cant control.
housebee: You are right. I think the hardest thing is that you just feel let down. My fi and I favorate thing ever is just having all the family together, and getting these last minute drop outs is detering. But you are right, at the end of the day I am marrying my best friend. And we just have to be thankful for the people that are there. And be extra thankful for the people that were super respectful of dates!!
