Awwwwww. Have a glass of wine, and then focus on all the people who ARE coming to celebrate your big day! I’m sure the others have good reasons for not attending.

We’ve had a few of those too and it is dissappointing. Just stay focused on those that will celebrating with you on your day.

I’m eloping, so I don’t have any advice on this…Just wanted to say I love that kitten! Well, now the kitten inspired me to think of this: now you can invite other people since you have more space? Silver lining to every cloud?

I hear ya! It’s up there with no reply even when you send a reminder message, so sad. Although I should be happy the numbers work out I do feel like this whenever a no rsvp comes in

i don’t like cats but that is one frickin’ cute kitty!!!!

I’m sorry someone RSVP’d no. That must really suck. If you want— I’ll come to your wedding. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love weddings!

I just started getting RSVP’s back. I havne’t gotten any no’s yet (i’ve only gotten 2 total). But I know there are people, mainly my people, who can’t afford to come. It’s a Destination Wedding in Scotland, so I totally get it, but as all my people are teachers, more of mine can’t come than FI’s and it’s sad ๐Ÿ™

Aw! Maybe have a BBQ or something with those people after the wedding and tell stories about your honeymoon and just relax & drink with them, so they can make up for it!

I’m sorry ๐Ÿ™

Is it sad that I actually want some people to RSVP “no”? I would be sad if a close family member declined but other than that I probably wouldn’t be too hurt lol. A lot were “courtesy” invites :

That is the saddest looking kitty ever – and yet so effing adorable at the same time.  

OP – I can’t really help here, I was hoping for more no’s than we got.  It does seem though that the ones you don’t REALLY want there RSVP yes right away.  The ones you hoped could come can’t.  WHY? Why universe? WHY?
