So I have a guest who, after receiving the invite to my wedding, said he and his wife were tentative because they were waiting to see if their daughter had an event on the same day.
Then, they sent in the RSVP and said yes and he told me in person that the daughter wasn’t participating in the event so it didn’t matter.
Yesterday, he tells me, she might be so they are tentative again.
Why can’t people understand that we need a headcount number and are making seating arrangements??
I’m not really sure how to respond to him….any advice?

When people told me “maybe” repeatedly I told them I was putting them down as a “No”. Probably not the nicest response but I have no patience for this kind of bs.

It’s just so annoying!! I’m like, I’m not going to beg this couple to come to my wedding and my whole world doesn’t revolve on their personal schedule of whether or not their coming.
But if I put them down as coming and they don’t, that’s like $400 of food wasted and two empty seats and that is just rude, IMO.
Wedding planning has given me a whole new appreciation of friends/family that RSVP in a timely manner and who are polite!!

They should RSVP as a ‘no’. It’s a formal seated dinner event where their plates have to be paid for ahead of time and you need to make seating arrangements before the day-of, so if there is any chance that they can’t make it they should do the polite thing and RSVP no.

So the guy tells me today that his daughter is going to participate in her event so they don’t think they can make it.
I just said, “Ok, no problem, I’m putting you guys down as not coming then”.
I think I was really nice about it at first (this has been going on for over a month) but enough is enough. I was a little curt with him but seriously, it’s the middle of the work day, I don’t have the time or the energy to hear about your inability to make a decision and stand by it.
AHHHH. Ok vent over 🙂
