Maybe I am mean, but I would put both down as a no at this point.

I would put down a No. I’m sure your venue will accomdate them if they show up but they should know that this is not how you respond to an RSVP.

Those situations suck. Its too bad no one seems to understand the importance of RSVP’s. In terms of the Aunt I would probably save her a seat as she is family and like you said you really wouldn’t want her to show up and not have a seat. For the friend waiting for the random girl. I would call him and say, do you know if your date can come? If the answer is he’s still not sure then just tell him sorry but the deadline is up and you have to give final numbers so he can no longer bring a date. Thats what I would do at least.

We had people RSVPing all kinds of late for our wedding this past March. I stressed over it, redid seating charts and generally wasted a lot of energy. In the end we just let everyone come since not everyone who RSVPs yes will actually come and we had plenty of room for everyone 🙂

I would call and leave a message to both the parties first thing in the AM or tonight saying that since your final numbers are due tomorrow, if you dont hear from them by noon you will have to put them down as a “no”.

@lefeymw: I second this. Just keep it short and say that if you don’t hear from them by 10 or noon or whatever they will be put down as not coming (or in the case of the friend coming alone) and will not have a seat.

@lefeymw: She hit it on the head. Leave the  message multiple ways – via phone, email, text, whatever. State that b/c you can’t get a hold of them you’re trying mulitple ways and if they don’t return, they’re nos. And then go have a good stiff drink. One day soon, really really soon, this will all be over and you’ll be hitched. 🙂
