How bad?

How bad is it to bail after RSVPing to a wedding? I was going to be going by myself. Things have come up with my kids and it's going to be really difficult to get to the wedding.

It would depend on how far away the wedding is... normally itís paid for by plate so they could potentially be out a lot of money if you donít show.

If you really canít make it, please reach out to the bride/groom ahead of time and donít just not show.

and still send a gift. Here in NJ it is always money. That would off set any expense they had due to you not showing.
It is sad to not show up to a wedding. My best friend's daughter got married. It was a distance from where we lived. We had rented a room at the venue. I made it through the church ceremony, but was so sick I could not leave the room for the reception. Still feel bad about missing it, but things happen, and people understand.

Itís not bad, things come up. They should have a few days or longer before the event to give a final head count, so they wouldnít have to pay for you. But do send a gift, anyway.

If you were the bride or the groom and didnít show up, that would be awful.

If you were one of the wedding party members, that would be bad.

As a guest who RSVPíd, as long as you let them know that you are not able to attend, you are good.
These types of things are planned for. Letting them know ASAP helps out.

No need to go if you cannot enjoy.

It wonít cost them any more money than it would if you had gone and had eaten the food. Send your gift and donít worry.
