    I would tell her that you need an answer by this date, and if you don’t hear from her you’ll assume she’s not coming.

    If you want to have seats available just in case, I’d put them wherever is easiest for you.  If she can’t even be bothered to give you an answer I wouldn’t be too concerned about where she ends up sitting.

    Can you tell her if you don’t know by the end of this week then you will assume she is not coming and will not be included in the seating chart? Is there a reason why she can’t rsvp?

    But if you can’t get an answer and don’t want more confrontation then I would go with seating her at the end. No offense but she sounds selfish and if that is the case then she could show up and make an ever bigger scene if she doesn’t have a seat.

    i think its fine to put her at the end of the table since she hasnt bothered RSVP’ing. its not like she will be alone down there, she will have her guest!

    Pssshhhh with that behvaior, she’s lucky to still get a seat and a guest. Seriously, just put her at the end, there’s no way she’ll have a leg to stand on if she complains. Is there any benefit to just leaving them off the chart completely vs the very end? 

    Edit: just saw that you’re also doing a vendor head count. Does it say anywhere that there are extra plates built into the price for surprise guests? I know some bees’ caterers have done that. If so, just leave her off the count. If not, I would include her. Sounds like she’ll probably still show up and expect to eat.

    If it were anyone other than your sister, I would say, assume she is not coming and do not include her. Because it is your sister, I understand this is likely not an option so I would seat her at an end (if thats what you’d like). At this point it is completely up to you.

    If you do seat her at an end, and she doesn’t come, those place settings can be quickly removed, and no one has to know otherwise.

    I would stick her at the end just in case she does not show up
