- Wedding: April 2013
Bees, yesterday I had my post-destinationwedding reception. Now, we had a great time, everything went off without a hitch, but I was so upset at the largish number of people that just didn’t show up. We had our event in a winery, and we had a strict limit of ~50 people because it was on a second floor mezzanine, and fire code was a problem. Because of this limit, we had to be super choosy about who we invited. We got RSVPs back that said 49 people were coming. However, on the day, there were only 30. I got texts from a few of them (migraine, homework, sick kid, etc.) but the vast majority of people didn’t even let us know! I don’t understand. If this was a “real” wedding, as in, if we were exchanging vows at this event, I doubt people would have been so flaky. But seriously, it made me so mad. I could have invited other people that would have actually shown up. I don’t understand why someone would RSVP and then not show up?
