We had several people not show up to our reception and we had tons of food left over. Guess what It’s ok. We just had family and friends take what they wanted home so the food wouldn’t go to waste. Just relax and breathe because it’s not all about that but celebrating the love between you and your Darling Husband.

oh geez..i’m so annoyed with my guestlist…I got married a few weeks ago b ut I’m having a hometown reception…and you wouldn’t beleive how many people RSVP’d four weeks ago and are now mentioning in passing that they “might come”…also, I’m petty sure we might have some “surprise guests”….since we’ve had several people who couldn’t be bothered to let us know if they were coming or not at all….and couldn’t be reached. So who knows what will happen.

My FSIL’s cousin and his son and girlfriend forgot to show up to my FSIL’s wedding and reception. I was in shock but yeah- wow! People DO forget!!!

We did the same (dw with @ home reception) and hassled the s**t out of our guests for RSVPs before we went away for final numbers. We made it clear that it was our WEDDING reception and it was important to us they come. People came. We had 1 no show
