@alaskin17:  Arg! How annoying! When do you make your final payment? Ours has to be one month before and I have a feeling I’ll have people cancel after we pay which will make me crazy

@alaskin17:  irks me too!  We gave our head count on the 1st, and the day before I got 3 cancellations. I kind of feel like either people really had no intent to come, or something “better” came along. I don’t think many people realize how much planning, and how important Rsvp’s are…if you can’t go, you can’t go…but don’t decide at the last minute!!

I only got 1 last minute cancellation…and you have to hear the reason.

“We ordered meat (!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!) and we got a phone call saying that it’s ready, so we have to go pick it up that day.  Sorry.”

@alaskin17:  I had 10 cancellations on the day of the wedding! Lucky you haven’t paid the caterer yet and can “recoup” that money.

These posts make me so glad that my final payment and arrangements are scheduled for 10 days before the wedding.
