Thought I would ask the newlyweds this question. Did anyone show up to your wedding who RSVPed “no”, never RSVped? Did a guest bring extra uninvited guests or children to the wedding? How did you handle this issue? Please share your stories!
I am worried this may happen to us because some family members are not happy with our no plus ones for single people and no kids rules.

I think I had 2 crashers, and 2 who showed that had RSVP’d “no,” but it really didn’t matter in the end because I also had about 6 people who did not show who had RSVP’d “yes.”
I was really stressed about this, too, but in the end, just realize people will figure it out on their own. I’m sure the crashers (who were friends of friends and who just assumed it was an open invitation), felt stupid when people started grabbing escort cards and they didn’t have one.

Neither of my sisters had people show up who weren’t invited, but they did swap out ‘plus one’s’ and ended up bringing different people than originally planned. No big deal, for example our one cousin brought a friend instead of her BF (I think they broke up, still have not confirmed). But I think both weddings had people who RSVP’d yes not show, you will always have that as things come up.

I really dont understand how people can do this. IMO its really rude to RSVP yes and not show or even worse RSVP no and show up!!! Or how can you attend someone’s wedding you are not invited to!?! I feel like society as a whole has become much more rude. I wouldnt worry too much about it though. Its not a big enough deal to stress yourself out over!

We had 3 people RSVP yes and didn’t show that I can think of. I don’t know what was up with two of them but there was snow where the other lived.
We had 2 not RSVP, FMIL said they wouldn’t be coming and they showed up.
Since it wasn’t a big number on either side we were okay.
