We all have experienced guests who failed to RSVP to different events that we host. There is always bound to be one or two. No big deal, right? But when it comes to your wedding and the budget, you would rather people RSVP whether or not they will be in attendance. Do not take it personally.

Top 6 Reasons Why Guests are RSVPing "No" to Your Wedding - Photographer: Artsy Vibes
1. No Children Allowed
One of the Top 6 Reasons Why Guests are RSVPing "No" to Your Wedding is because you are hosting an adults-only style wedding. Some guests have a hard time finding someone to babysit their children to attend the wedding. So, if you plan on hosting an adults-only wedding, keep in mind that guests that have children may not be able to attend.
2. You Are Having a Destination Wedding
Destination weddings are so romantic and beautiful. However, hosting a destination wedding is one of the Top 6 Reasons Why Guests are RSVPing "No" to Your Wedding. Traveling can be expensive and may not be within the budget of your guests. Not to mention that many are still uncomfortable traveling during the pandemic.
3. The Already Made Plans
When it comes to save-the-dates, we highly recommend them. There is a reason for asking guests to set aside a specific date to attend your wedding. And that is so that they do not already make plans. If someone plans a vacation, more than likely, they are not going to cancel their plans. They will indicate "no" on their RSVP.
4. Attending a Wedding Can Be Expensive
Just like with everything else, a budget can play a role in whether or not someone plans on attending your wedding. Some of the costs for guests to attend your wedding can include gifts, clothes, airfare, gas, and so on. Guests who may be experiencing financial hardship may decline the invitation to your wedding. This is one of the Top 6 Reasons Why Guests are RSVPing "No" to Your Wedding.
5. They Hardly Know You
I know you have always dreamed of having a big extravagant wedding. However, there is no need to invite just about anyone, such as coworkers or distant relatives you have never even met. Limit your guest list to those that mean the most to you like friends and family members. Guest who are invited that feel they hardly know you more than likely RSVP "no" to your wedding invitation.
6. They Weren't Invited to Other Pre-Wedding Events
Guests may feel "some kind of way", if you invited them to the wedding, and did not invite them to other pre-wedding events such as the bridal shower, bachelorette party, or engagement party. It is a lot to keep track of. However, this could be one of the Top 6 Reasons Why Guests are RSVPing "No" to Your Wedding.
