Ok we’re at:

97 – yes

53 – no

4 – MIA

My venue needs final counts, meal choices and seating this Friday. If I haven’t heard from the last 4 by then, I’m just going to assume they’re not coming.  We tried tracking everyone down and couldn’t get responses for these invites via regular mail, phone or email. If they do show up, maybe they’ll take a freakin hint when there’s no escort card or place for them to sit.

@elliestan: Just ease dropping. But, my brother had a similar incident happen. Bottom line was that the friends were upset they were not in wedding. Just an idea.
