    Maybe one last chance over Facebook and just express that you need a final head count. Let her know if you don’t hear by X date you will put her down as a no. Good luck, that stinks!

    I dont know the history but if you really want an answer, I’d pick up the phone and call her and see what’s up.

     I think TheFutureMrsNguyen has the right idea. make it casual and be the bigger person, you dont want to be worrying about this kind of stuff. If she comes she come, if not, well you said you don’t really want her there so that would be a blessing. I hope this works it’s self out soon

    That sounds like she is a No. But you don’t want to be surprised on the day of, so maybe just one more email to confirm.

    I am a pissed Bee right now.  I say if you already sent her a message and she is not responding, just mark her down as a no!  I had to track people down for my wedding and most of those I had to track down that eventually RSVP yes didn’t show.  That amounted to 60 people!!!

    I would track her down just because I wouldn’t want her to show up at the wedding after being assumed a No and not have a place for her!

    I think you’ve made your effort. If you continue i think she’ll just say yes to appease you and not actually come. I think bees who have done a lot of hunting experience those hunted not actually making it to the event. 

    Normally with a quick text you get “omg! Im so sorry! If course I’ll be there.” if someone is sincere.
