Do you have a coordinator or someone who can deal with finding them a place to sit if they show up? I wouldn’t put them on the seating chart if they never got back to you, how rude!

I would send them another email and say “I am finalizing the seating plan for our wedding. If you are unable to confirm by tomorrow, I will assume you are not able to attend. I will finish the seating plan accordingly.”

Yes, they have been rude. Yes , it is a nuisance for you.

But the reality is if you don’t get a firm yes or no, you are the one who will be inconvenienced if they show up.

I agree with Julies1949. I’m ordering my plate charger and favor based on the number of people coming. I do not want to order extra. I told my friends and my family to tell their guests that I need the rsvp by the X date because I need to turn in my order. If guest don’t give me the final answer by the date, I would have to assume they are not coming.

ARGH! how annoying! but even worse they should just give you a yes or no answer! especially if you have made contact with them! sooo frustrating and rude!

Id have a little backup plan. but dont go out of your way for them. also chip them about it if they do turn up. but in a way that doesnt sound too rude and cause more problems for you!

but really you dont want to be worring about this before your big day! argh!

@cutexkitty: I don’t recommend your plan, to be honest it sounds like disaster waiting to happen. You should always contact people who don’t RSVP to find out if they’re coming or not. In OP’s case, she has already attempted to contact them.
