I get where your coming from on this because this is actually one of my biggest fears too!!  So far only 81 guest said yes out of 100 which is pretty good but im afraid for the ones that have said yes and actually NOT show up! does that make sense? anyways, I get where your coming from I’m just trying to make the best of it i can and what happens happens we can’t really control it? :/


As for the people that have told you they are leaving after the ceremony I would personally tell them it hurts you.  I would if it ever comes up and i don’t care if they get mad because its your special day and you want certain special people to share it with so for you to be hurt is understandable and they should know it hurts you! 


Hope it works out for you 🙂

I’m freaking out about this because our first (only only thus far) RSVP was a no. FI’s cousin not attending because his step-brother is getting married the same day. Totally understand but now I’m freaking out about how much of FI’s family will pick the other wedding over ours! Fingers crossed not many!!!

This is our reality too. Granted we started out on the smaller side with 75 invitees but, 2 weeks to the wedding we are looking at 38 – MAYBE 34 if 4 on his side cant commit. I almost feel like “why are we bothering”. To add insult to injury, we estimated no less than 50 for our venue and if our guest count drops below 20% of that estimate (so 40) we pay a penalty.
