…. All the planning and work that went into each stupid seat at each table… making sure there are 8 of everything and even planning activity books and a little stuffed animal for each kid.
My MC’s husband won some free tickets to some concert and he may not be coming to my wedding on Saturday. If he doesnt come their 2.5 year old son (who we hired a babysitter for) will also not be here. That is 2 spots empty at a 50 person wedding… which to me is a huge deal! Im really frustrated…. I have finished the place cards and escort cards and seating plan…. even if I could find 2 people Id like to invite i couldnt make more …. who does that… 5 days to the wedding and then just in passing metions… ooh my husband might not be coming…

I’m sorry you’re having to deal with that – I find it baffling that someone (particularly someone who’s married and is presumably familiar with the stresses of wedding planning!) can think it’s ok to back out of a commitment two days before. If I were you I’d say something to her – particularly if you’ve gone out of your way to hire a babysitter especially for them.

It is unfortunate that they won’t be there, but I promise – this is NO big deal. You are having wedding week stress. 2 people out of 50 not being there isn’t going to make a difference in the beauty or success of your day. Let it go! You don’t need to look for things to stress about.

Same boat.. just posted my rant on flakers :-/ I feel your pain. We’ve had people just casually mentioning they’re not coming (plus their date) over the past week. It’s screwing up the tables, can’t change the cards…so far we’re eating about $750 just bc these people couldn’t have the courtesy to tell us with a decent amount of notice. Fiance even offered to loan money to one bc it annoys him so much that we’re actually paying for people who won’t be there.

@waitingwonderland: i dont understand this crap.. lol How is this something that you casually mention? I think thats the part that upsets me the most. What are you going to do about the empty spots? So I still set them? Do I change the table to only seat the number at the table? So annoying
