Ugh, that is frustrating! I feel sorry for your girlfriend though 🙁

We didn’t have any cancellations, but we had about 10 out of 225 that just didn’t show up!

Yeah, it’s frustrating.  We had 9 people out of 90 cancel on us in the few days before the wedding.  Two even came to the ceremony from out of town, and then told us they were leaving before the reception because they just felt like they needed to go do some touristy stuff to “make it worth the trip”.

@Mrs. Meowerson: My aunt and uncle didn’t show up…I am not really close to them at all, so it wasn’t a huge loss.  2 people were sick, but NO, they didn’t tell me until after the fact.  One lady DH’s mom invited said she was sick, so her 5 people didn’t show up. 

I didn’t notice most of them the day of, only when I started to flip through our guest book and then we started naming people out loud.  Honestly, we just did heavy appetizers and we provided the alcohol, so it wasn’t a huge deal to us.  Totally rude, and I get grouchy when I think about it though! 😉

But I’m sure you’d understand why your friend (your closest friend) might want to be near her grandmother, right?

10% is fairly standard–even 30 years ago when my parents got married, they had 10% no shows.

 

We’re prepared for that possibility for ours, too.

 

Try not to take it personally.

 

Hugs!

The people that canceled last minute annoyed me until the wedding day when I had people not show at all.  Those people pissed me off even more to be honest.
