Just wondering how many guests you thought would come rsvp no? When going through my list it’s easy to pick out the ones that I don’t think will make it, but for everyone else the thought goes through my head “well why wouldn’t they come?”. I know that’s not realistic that every one will come so I’m just curious approx how many ended up RSVPing no, and what was their relationship to you??

@Pink Asawa: We don’t have all of our RSVPs back, but a couple of our close friends said they couldn’t make it. In the end, we understand, as they would have to travel by plane and it is an expense that they can’t afford right now. Still makes me sad they won’t be there though.

@housebee: I have a few out of towners that I am iffy on too, but I guess I’m thinking more of the local ones such as friends of my parents, parents of my friends etc that I assume have no reason not to come, but aren’t my best friends so I haven’t already drilled the date into their heads lol
@mchitt329: What was their relationship to you? Close family/ friend or more acquaintance?

Quite a few, actually.. which is sad, becuse we had a wedding the was on the small side (70 people) to begin with. Not to mention, one of our tables was almost completely empty, despite everyone RSVPing they’d be there.

@Pink Asawa: 2 were FI’s friends, gave a work reason.
Ugh the other 4 are a family that had to travel from Iowa to Michigan and gave a ton of BS reasons…. thene showed up for thanksgiving. LOL I started a previous thread about it. The mother in this family was like a 2nd mother to me and I still can’t believe they won’t be there.

I don’t know exact numbers but I know I made an educated guess and we had slightly less than I guessed so it worked well. We had very few people if any that we were super hurt that they didn’t make it. Most people we truly wanted there were.

a few; including my FMIL. Long story there, but then there were a handful of people I was surprised actually are coming so it evened out. We are still waiting on a few more RSVPs from folks but most I predict will be noes and we still have the number that were comfortable with as a final headcount anyway.
