After my dad's brother, sister in law and his sister walked in 2 hours late and neither Shawn nor I ran over to talk to them, he knew we were pissed. I told him I thought his family was beyond rude. Shawn never spoke to my uncle and I wasn't mad about it but I think my dad was upset. I told my dad I am going to let their actions roll off of me but that I won't forget what they did. My dad continues (as always) to preach forgiveness. I told him there is a line you have to draw when it comes to forgiveness or you just become someone's doormat. I told them we won't be their doormat - we just won't deal with them anymore. His response...forgiveness.
That's a lot of no-shows! I'm sorry, it must be so frustrating on so many levels, the financial aspect would definitely annoy me.
Oh F**K Jessica - we spent a ton of money! Needless to say I have a deep freezer FULL of Mexican food! I don't have to cook for a while, but if I see another tamale or bowl of green chili I am going to barf!

I am worried bout this too.... ours is Jan 17th (sat) at 1pm til 6pm. I did it during the day because of winters here in Mass and alot more people I thought would come because it's during the day... but my responses are not coming... I have like 30 people so far and the invites went out right after we left for Jamaica. I know I have 3 more weeks left before they are due... but I sent out invites for 147 people.... We have alot of people that are oh so not dependable at all ...
Ya know what ... next time to you see people that didn't come ... make sure you talk to someone that did go bout how GREAT it was even if certain people didn't show... LOL...
STICK IT RIGHT TO THE MAN!!!
We did a brunch because winters here in Colorado aren't that nice either. It was chilly Saturday and had snowed the night before so some of my co-workers were on Snow duty, but my dad's family weren't. If we would have had an open bar their dumb asses would have been here! Whatever...screw em!

She was paying about $150/pp. What do people think? If they don't show up - they just deduct the amount from the bill?
They'd be the same ones that would rant and rave if you did something like that to them!!
OMFG - I would have died! We were out a couple hundred dollars on it all. Still - we have kids - we could have spent a couple hundred dollars on something for our kids!

If I were you i would definately say something to them because they RSVP and then they didnt show up.
Yes there are problems with one of his brothers, and I am thinking since they were in town that loyalties were with them and since my dad is such a pushover, no one takes his side.
