Sometimes you get no shows but I wouldn’t necessarily count on that. I know it does happen at weddings where 15 people won’t show up, but it isn’t too common based on my experience that that many people would no show to the same event.

You might get a few no-shows but I’d plan on them all being there. And it’s pretty unlikely to get 15 no-shows…usually it’s like the odd couple out.

it depends. certainly there are many weddings where all guests show up. It also depends on your guest count. If youre having 500 people, theres more of a chance youll have some no shows. If you’re having 60 people, there’ll be less of a chance. 15 is pretty high. My brother had 260 and 8-10 actually ended up not showing on the day (which is actually pretty high I think).

We had 5 no shows out of 50 invited guests who had all responded as attending.

Every guest that RSVP’ed yes showed at my wedding. I think this is the problem you face if you over invite! I guess you will just have to pony up for the extra meals (well not really extra since you invited them!)

We had 150 guests who accepted our invitation, and, due to a family emergency in another state, one couple could not come.  So, we only had two who said yes who also did not end up attending.

I will never understand the people who RSVP ‘yes’ and then don’t show up…do people not understand they still have to pay for you to eat even if you don’t show up?!?! Emergency situations are obviously excluded from this mini rant of mine…

We had 5 no shows out of 70 people. It was odd but 3 of those no shows were all at the same table. I felt bad for the 5 people that had all those empty seats at their table! I will never understand how people think its ok to just not show up and not tell anyone.

I have never heard of people RSVPing and then no-showing (excluding extreme emergency situations of course) and I have been to a lot of weddings over the years! I can’t believe that so many people here have experienced that, I feel so awful for you to hear that. I cannot fathom the rudeness of doing something like this!!

OP – I would definitely bet on the fact that if people RSVP’d that they are coming, they will be there.
