Kinda both. You do have every right to be offended but then again, they may have a very important reason. Besides, that just means there will be left overs for you to take on the honey moon or take home and not worry about cooking LOL

Yea, it is kind of rude that they called last minute to say that they can’t come.. but something could have come up.  at leats they did call to tell you instead of just not showing up….

Any chance your venue would let you ‘upgrade’ another part of the menu, instead of just having you lose the money on the missing people?  For example, offering an extra passed hors d’oeuvres, or upgrading to a better pouring wine?

It is sad and disappointing about the last minute regrets, especially with lame excuses, but try not to let it put a cloud over you. (I’m sure my emotions will be overwhelming that last week, and I may react strongly to a lot of things that would normally roll off my back– will have to remember to take my own advice.)  Just try to focus on the fact that you’ll be getting married to the man you love in just three days!  So exciting!!!

Yeah, it sucks when that happens, but at least they did call.  I had one guest email me and ask to bring her boyfriend– she actually said, "I’m sure it’s not a big deal, but my mom tells me I HAVE to ask…".  I was kind of annoyed but told her that it was ok.  I updated my head count and paid for both of them– and then neither of them shows.  I was pretty ticked off.

i remember when my friend got married about 2 years ago, we (i was a BM) was walking to the car to go to the church and her brother (who was giving her away) got a phone call to say 3 people wont be showing up.   at the time i thought how rude of them to wait for the latest possible moment to cancel. if you accept an invitation, especially when it costs someone for you to be there and unless you are in an accident, violently ill or been kidnapped you have to go is my thoughts

try not to let it bother you too much – look for the positives and enjoy
