There will almost certainly be at least one no-show, and your brother’s date can take that person’s place. No, this is not an ideal situation, but in the grand scheme of things it’s probably not worth the energy you’re sinking into being upset about it.

I hope everything works out with the flower delivery!

anyone planning a wedding should always make room for a few extras on the day of.   Its just one of those things that happen.  

I think this is just one thing not to spend the energy stressing about.

@Sugaree:  Dude that is not cool about your brother’s GF. I would let mom know you’ve already turned in the final numbers and she can’t be seated until every RSVPed guest is accounted for.

As for your flowers, I understand. Last minute wedding hiccups are horrible. My favors did not arrive until the Thursday before our wedding and it took hours to assemble them.

It will all work out dear!!

Exactly this. Tell him no. If you have a seating chart, this will screw things up, not to mention that your final numbers are already in. Was he invited with a +1? You need to call him (not your mother) and tell him no.

@LuvMySailor:  +1 and I disagree with 

 

@RockStar33:  isn’t it much more common for people that RSVP’d to no-show?!  I would never count extra people in, you’re almost guaranteed to lose money!  Although a good caterer/venue should accomodate you.

Put your foot down about this girl, you already turned final numbers into the venue!  That’s reason enough!  I won’t tolerate that crap with my upcoming wedding!

@Sugaree:  This is why I’m glad that I’m an only child. I know not all siblings are like this (2 of FI’s 3 siblings are great, and I adore them), but ugh. I’d throttle him.

Caterer’s always have extra for situations like that..and like a PP said, someone is bound to not show up that said they’d be there. Be happy your brother is bringing a date. I’m sure he didn’t want to come alone to a wedding. Give him a break.

@mchitt329:  yes, it is more common for people to no show.   I never payed for “extra people” but i had a couple extra come at the last minute, and thankfully it worked out that i had 2 no shows, so they just had to eat whatever the no shows ordered.  

Like someone said, caterers always account and have extra food on hand anyway for situations like this, among other reasons.
