awww, I’m so sorry to hear that! That is so disappointing to feel like that’s what you’re friends think of you! Just remember that maybe it is a really big to them (their reasons.)

But, wow, a venue for 300 is really huge! I’m just curious- Why did you book one that’s 3x as big as you needed?

cant your friend stay at another hotel that allows pets but still attend your wedding??  i would try suggesting this to them, then you will find out if they are clueless (hadn’t thought of that), or just making up an excuse not to come.

Hello Date Twin! Tongue out  I also only invited about 100 guests at a place that can hold way more guests…so yeah i worry it’ll look weird…but the staff coordinator assured me that when the tables are set up and spread out it’ll look normal…since we have a lot of “NO’s” so far we’re expecting to do 8 guests per table and have 10 tables.  I like the idea of smaller tables so people have more room to eat and relax without bumping shoulders with the person next to them etc…As for your RSVP, you’re in the same boat as me…I’d say expect around 15% on average of NO replies…for us its more like 20% but we already knew that pretty much as some already informed us they would be out of the country for 3 months so we just decided to invite the next generation of family on FI’s side instead who are younger and funner anyways! heheh..no worries..if you have other people you did not invite you can always do a”B-list” AKA a second round of invites…

@FutureMrsBPB: I was going to suggest a ton of cocktail tables and a huge dance floor, most people don’t sit at their sit after dinner anyways.

Btw, your Fiance is right – it doesn’t matter who shows up, it will be a perfect day.  Everyone has things about the day that aren’t exactly perfect in their mind when planning, but when the day comes the memories are priceless.

You might be surprised! So far we have only gotten ONE no RSVP, and that is because she is working that weekend and can’t take it off because she has to take the weekend before it off to close on her house. Honestly, people LOVE to come to weddings- we are having people I NEVER thought would come RSVP yes. So don’t stress it too much! They might surprise you!

Im sorry your feeling so hurt today. But its the first few days the people that you will really want there and that really want to be there will be, and it will be an amzing day if 100 people show up or just ten. Dont stress this is just the begining.
