Wow, that’s so frustrating!  So did they all RSVP “yes” or did some not RSVP at all and you counted them as a “yes”?  Can I ask if it was buffet or a plated meal?  I don’t think I’d be able to stay calm at the wedding if that happened to me 🙁

unfortunately, most people who haven’t been a part of planning a wedding in the last decade have not idea why it’s so important to rsvp and stick with that decision. 

to be honest, until i became involved in the industry i had no idea i could potentially waste food/money by rsvping incorrectly. 

i’m sure if it was ok to lay it out to them “hey, are you coming or not?  i need to know so i don’t waste money on saving your spot/meal.” a lot of people would be more diligent about getting back to and coming through on their rsvp. 

bride brain often makes it difficult for us to realize not everyone has quite the extensive wedding etiquette that we do.

and FWIW, i would totally have given the person who messaged me on fb a piece of my mind about not coming after they rsvp’d for so many damn people.  hell, i might track down the rest of them too and let it be known how much they cost me. 

i’m known for speaking my mind among friends and family, so i doubt they would be suprised.

So frustrating.  We had 9/88 guests no show @$100pp and I was pissed, so I feel your pain.  60 no shows is crazy!

@mrsjjohnson2b:  Wow, that’s a ridiculous number of people to reply yes and not show up!  Good for you for keeping your cool in public and I’m so glad that you had such a great wedding!

Wow. Makes me want to tell people that the wedding costs $100 per reservation, so it’s vital that they be honest and make every effort to attend if they RSVP yes.

Holy shit 60 no shows? You are absolutely right to be livid. I’d probably mass message all those people and invoice them. at least I’d really, really want to. That’s beyond rude. Especially when you told them you didn’t want to overpay!
