Are you saying that peole who RSVP’d yes are now saying no? I can see how that would be very upsetting.  I just got my list together of who I plan on inviting and while I would like a smaller wedding I can’t imagine not having anyone on my list NOT there, ya know? I know I’ll be very sad when people RSVP no.

Girl, go find my post “is it too late for vegas” Same stuff is happening to me. I’m done with it. If you’re shady about it, I remove you. It’s that simple. I just had 6 of FI’s friends from out of state call me and go oh by the way, all 6 of us are coming. NO you’re not. I have my tables set up, I have the vendors paid, sorry. Did the phone calls, VM, fb messages, and texts, not click that maybe we hadn’t heard back.

 

I wish we had just eloped too.

We’ve put so much hard work and time to just give up now.

Sounds really frustrating! At least they are letting you know so you might not have to pay for their food and stuff.

Fiance and I have looked at it as a money saver. After those 6 people backed out, I rearranged everyone and got rid of a table. Heck Yeah, just saved us $15 for a centerpiece, chair covers, cake, and food. WOO HOO. Sorry, we’re broke as a joke right now and need more pennies to pinch

Yeah it sucks when everything is planned out and people cancel left and right. We went from 96 confirmed to 78. Oh well their loss.

People just don’t realize how much work goes into planning a wedding…

WEll, look at it this way: better they back out now, than just not show on the day of the wedding.

Imagine being a bride who was supposed to have 80 people show, and only about 20-30 show.  On the day OF the wedding.  

Not joking, either.  that happened to the bride who had the wedding at the cabins we’re gonna be using.  We happened to have been there that weekend and, yeah, that’s how many showed.  And she was supposed to have had around 80. Maybe more, but I’m pretty sure it was 80 or so.

I feel like the excuses are always really lame because they’ve known what the date was for like 9-10 months now, so who really plans a vacation that far in advance? You know they were looking at their calendar thinking, that’s weekend of Moderndaisy’s wedding, but it’s not a big deal we can skip it to go to antartica for the weekend. Meanwhile those same people were saying things to me all along like “I can’t WAIT for your wedding, cute STD!”

well think of it this way, more money to save up on; better to know now than have all these no shows on the day of and expensive uneaten dinner plates; you can circulate more with the remaining guests; it’s all good

just as well

We’ve had a few of those too, sooo annoying!  And it’s people who have known about our wedding and the date for the last 12 months or so.  This is why we send out Save The Date magnets 6 months ahead of time.

But like @Ryna said, better they tell you now than just not show!
