So this has now happened twice and I'm not quite sure how to approach the situation. My wedding is taking place on Sept. 10th, and the RSVP deadline we set was for today, August 1st.
Because my FI and I had extra room on our guests list, we decided to give a +1's to some of our friends, even though they are not in serious relationships. Now two of those friends have confirmed, but they cannot seem to get confirmation from their would-be dates. They have both asked if we can just "hold the extra spot". On the one hand it doesn't feel like that big of a deal because we did a lot for the extra space, but on the other hand, I'm annoyed because we are paying by the head, and we do need to give a final head count to our caterer. Do we just "assume" that those extra dates will show up and count them in our final count "just in case", or do I say "too bad so sad" to my friends?
It should be noted, that I'm sure I'll be getting this from a few more people as well, and I just want to have a prepped response for those who may be in the same situation. I can't very well tell some people yes and others no. Can I?
Thanks ladies, I appreciate all your feedback.
