Thats great you had 100% guest count.  That was the only thing that I was really irritated with at our wedding.  Those that I had tracked down and received no rsvp for, still did not show.  It totaled to about 20 guests that no showed and about 1K lost.  Luckily however even the mistakes, I can see the bright side about.  For example, these guests that did not show.. most I had seated in a loft (I had two lofts in the space and had to utilize one for the guests) so it didnt look like people no showed in the pics and the video.  Also its their loss, because so many guests told me that it was the best wedding they have been to!  I tried really hard to make the best day for everyone.  So it meant a lot to me to hear people say that.  I read reviews like crazy, and did online research like crazy too.  I did not taste test, but our wedding food was “the best wedding food” people had ever had, and the portions were so large that people were getting to go boxes.  They gave everyone two sirloin steak slices, and sometimes 3 chicken breasts!  Our cake was amazing, and we had a ton left over, because our venue randomly stopped serving it… but the people that got it, got a nice large piece.  And all of the mistakes actually looked way better than the original plan!
