Just had our wedding (of 68 guests) and we had 2 cancellations the week of the wedding (one of them the night before) and 2 no-shows the day of the wedding. 

The two no-shows didn’t call, text, email, anything. Neither had legitimate excuses. Both were on my husband’s side: one a cousin, the other his GRANDFATHER. Yes. Grandfather. 
I’m trying not to hold grudges but good God. If that was my grandfather, I would have flipped. Really, I’m angry for my husband and don’t know how to interact with him this Thanksgiving. Ultimately, for any no-show guests: it’s their loss, not ours. We now have different opinions of them as people and that’s their loss also.

Pupperoni:  106 guests—20 no shows.  Definitely disappointing.

Some people just don’t understand how much money goes into a wedding.
