    people definitely did not show up that RSVPd yes. and they later had crappy excuses.  the day of, some people are goingt o have something come up.  Go with your gut.  Give your caterer a final number that is a few people short.  They will likely make 3-5% extra anyway.

    Too bad you can’t charge them for their inconsiderateness.

    I didn’t even get excuses from people who didn’t show up.  Fortunately, there weren’t too many.   Isuppose it doesn’t matter. They would have been lame ones anyway.

    there were plenty of people who RSVP’d yes and didn’t show at our wedding. i was very PO’d that I had to pay for them and they didn’t show up without even a call! it wasn’t even the paying for their food part that bothered me though. what hurt most was the fact that they didn’t even call to say they weren’t going to make it. =( i did have one friend tell me he wasn’t going to make it as he was really sick. he’s still my friend. =)

    Two people didnt show for us. Not only did I have to pay for their food which bothered me, they didn’t bother to call or even give us a message online via Facebook to say congrats or sorry they couldn’t make it. It also bothered me because they were only invited on behalf of other people. One of the two, we didn’t even WANT her there, and she kept talking like she was going to be there for sure, never even hinting to us. Sigh. They both also had the same first name… go figure :p
