We have a total amount of seats paid for 110, we have 12 seats open. I can’t get this money back, I accept that. I don’t really care, I’d rather have to many seats, and people can move around than not enough.
Here’s the thing though, Fiance has a few family members that have crazy schedules (they can’t figure out their schedules a week out? IDK don’t get me started on them) I was wondering how to handle no-RSVP and they show up anyway? I know how I’m handling cupcakes, they get a plain vanilla/vanilla cupcake. But they have to have a ticket to get in and eat.
Should I plan for them there? Help!

If you already have 12 seats available, aren’t you already planning for them being there? How many people re you talking about. I would not count non-rsvps. Tell them they either can or can’t make it. If they say maybe, then I would plan for them since a maybe is closer to a yes than a no (for me).

@bridalprincess: not really planning on them being there. We’re getting married at a baseball field, the game is the reception. I’d rather have extra seats. So people can move and sit as they please. If that makes sense?

@gogogiraffes: you should probably have a few extra seats for people that don’t RSVP, especially if your wedding isn’t exactly close to where people live. They might not be to happy when they get there and aren’t aloud in ( even though they didn’t RSVP )
