Hello! I was wondering if anyone can help me or has experienced a similar situation — I got married recently and after getting back from our honeymoon, we were finally able to go through cards/gifts, organize and put away wedding things, etc... This included looking through our no-shows. Three guests told us after the ceremony that they wouldn't be able to attend the reception (disappointing but appreciated them attending ceremony and letting us know) and there were two who had RSVP'd yes and never showed up at all (never gave any kind of acknowledgement or apology that they'd missed it and we haven't asked either of them shout it)..
One of my friends is getting married this weekend, and my new hubby and I are on their guest list. The catch is that this friend is one of the no-shows to our own wedding three weeks ago and while I understand how crazy things get before a wedding, I don't understand the inconsideration of not saying anything, especially from someone who is also planning a wedding. Since I never heard anything from him after our wedding (though I'd communicated with him the week before about his attendance), I'm not particularly feeling like making a three-hour round trip drive to his wedding or bringing a gift... I did RSVP yes and I don't want to be "that person" but I guess I'm just feeling a little bitter and hurt. Anyone have any advice on what to do? Am I just being a B?
