Rant or Rave: Wedding No-Shows

We don’t think anyone would debate that RSVPing for a wedding and then not showing up is a big no-no. (Or not even RSVPing in the first place.) But we want to hear your opinion on the whole matter…

Not showing up to a wedding costs the bride and groom a ton of money that goes straight down the drain. Is there a good excuse for not showing up? Do you think guests understand how much their attendance really costs when you add it all up? And, lastly, have you ever been a no show? Tell your side of the story. (We promise, we won’t judge.) Rant or rave!

    I’d like to think that guests do not understand the cost to whoever is paying the bill. I think most people who are not in the industry even think about all the details like shuttles for guests, food, dishware, silverware, linens, chairs, tables, etc!! I think it’s a big bummer when someone no-shows. Maybe the couple sacrificed something they liked personally in order to make sure all guests were able to enjoy something else?

    I just had my wedding on Sunday, a very small event, but we still had 8 no-shows. And seven of them were family. I don’t even know what to say about that. It hurts my feelings and yes, was money down the drain for us and was extremely inconsiderate. But the love we felt from the people who were there more than made up for it. And they’re the ones who have to live with knowing that they missed a great party!
