Yep. In fact, almost no one who RSVP’d no gave any explanation. They will probably explain to you the next time you see them. Or not. Sometimes people are uncomfortable with turning down wedding invitations and try to avoid the subject afterwards. It’s weird.

We only got declines from out-of-town guests and they usually didn’t have any explanation but we assumed it was because of the weather, the economy or the holidays.

Is it really important to you to know why people are declining or just curiosity?

We had three RSVP declines so far.  One stated a reason, one just said how sorry they were to miss it, and one did not have any message at all. FH said the latter are notorious for skipping all family events, though. I honestly don’t care why they are not coming, because I don’t even know who those people are. I think they even were from FMIL’s “we need to invite them but they probably won’t come” list.

I agree that if it’s from friends who said they would come, I would want to know why they changed their mind. However, people have all sorts of things going on, so who knows.

Unless if I’m really close to them I wont realy care too much. Mine is on a sunday afternoon so I know that some people will not be able to make it.
