@newname_99:  Have you given your final numbers to your caterer?  Personally, I think your best case scenerio definitely outshines your worst case scenerio.  Flakey people suck, especially when it comes to wedding planning.  But maybe something changed for them (prior plans fell through, financial position improved, ect) and now they can come!  There is a reason they were invited in the first place.  If you have room for them, I say let them come.  If they can’t make it, you have 46 other guests there to enjoy your beautiful wedding day with you and your new husband.  And if their food is made and they aren’t there to enjoy it, then have them put it in a doggy bag so you can enjoy it later that evening!

I would simply say no, blaming it on the venue. It’s silly to respond NO and then change your mind 3 weeks before the event. Stand your ground!

I guess it depends on who these flakey people are lol Is it someone you really want at your wedding or would you rather not take a chance on them?

Oh dear. I guess you just sigh, spend the money, and let them come. I would not hesitate to stress the importance of the final decision on their part, as it will cause hardship on you.

I would tell them that the final numbers are in and can’t be changed. Too late in the game. SOunds like you’ll be a stress ball waiting to see if they actually show up, which is super uncool.

I would say sorry but I can’t squeeze you in 3 weeks before the wedding. No need to drive yourself crazy for them. I don’t care what culture it is, saying yes after you had RSVP no and THREE weeks before the wedding is just plain rude!
