@March2011BrideLA:  I think it would be better to have 4 empty seats then 4 people without seats.

@Riot: Ditto.  It sucks, but I would definitely count them in rather than out.  Is it a family friend of your FI’s?  Ask them to call too!  It’s awkward, but they’re the ones who had poor etiquette for whatever reason.  You just need to know!

Out of 200+ invites, you’re only waiting on one RSVP? That’s incredible!

I agree with the PP’s that it’s probably better to count him in rather than out. Personally, I’m anal about these things so I’d probably call repeatedly to get an answer!

You ladies are really nice 🙂  Maybe I’m a b*tch, but I would count them out if I didn’t get a response after several attempts…and leave him a message to let him know that I was sorry, but assumed that no reply meant he was unable to make it.  Four seats is alot…that would be over $200 wasted at my wedding.

@March2011BrideLA: wow you are lucky.  I had to hunt SO many down… the most bizarre one I got was the RSVP envelope with no RSVP card inside.  Talk about major detective skills!   Is there anyone else you could ask (that knows him and is attending the wedding)?

Since you are only unsure of 4 I say count them in. I think it would be worse to have no seats than 4 extra seats.
