Ours were completely accurate.  We didn’t have anyone show up who hadn’t RSVPed and everyone who RSVPed showed up.

We had one person not show, and one extra person show up, so we broke even!

@hermitcrab:  The person who just showed up- did they rsvp no or not rsvp at all?  That is so brazen!

At my first wedding, we had 72 people RSVP yes.  One person bought a friend instead of his date, which was NOT okay, and 2 peoole didn’t show.  One forgot, and one was too busy and only his wife came.

We had approximately 195 people RSVP yes.  Approximately 18 of them did not show up, and two who were not invited did.

@Phofe2774:  Most caterers plan to feed 3-5% over and it’s already in the cost. The big problem is if every table already has the max number of seats at it.

We didn’t have anyone that showed up that said no. Although, we had 1 phone us the Monday before our wedding to tell us they had decided to hope on a plane after all to come….

We did have about 5 people who said yes and didn’t show. They were mostly the kids of the couples we invited. So we were pretty annoyed since we already felt it was nice of us to invite their kids in the first place (non family members).

@Mrs. Meowerson:  I guess that was sort of misleading – the extra person turned out to be my aunt’s aid, and I counted her because she sat at a table and ate a meal, so it counted in our total.  Wasn’t so bad actually!

Our RSVPs were only off by two guests, but those two still let me know ahead of time that they weren’t able to make it anymore, so we didn’t have any surprises.
