These types of people hold a very special place in my heart. Not the nicest part. Definitely not from the bottom of my heart!
Do they have an idea of the agony they cause for someone planning an event. Not only does a person planning an event have added stress when they least need it, the RSVP count or lack of is costing them money. Yes, MONEY! Guessing on a final guest count is costly. Nothing pains me more than seeing a couple a week away from their wedding looking like volunteers at a call bank for a fund raising for public television. "We were wondering if we could count on you for your support?" Well, kind of like that!
A tip for those planning an event! Make sure your last table number is for those who might possibly show up but haven't sent in an RSVP! It's only fair that they not be served in the same manner as everyone else. They should be the last ones the DJ calls to the buffet line. Never should anyone who DID send in an RSVP be scraping the bottom of a chafing dish!
