This week we're playing "most likely to..." - wedding guest edition! So who is most likely to say they’re coming and then not show up without a word on the big day? Who’s most likely to be a no-call no-show?

    My friend and bridesmaid. She almost didn't make it because two weeks before the wedding I asked her how she planned to get to vegas, what day, and what hotel, and learned she assumed we had a bus to drive all the guests 8 hours the day of the ceremony! She also thought she would share our hotel room the night we were married. If I had not took initiative to ask her, she would have discovered the day before or the day of that she had no way to get there, nowhere to sleep, and she had not asked for enough time off work.

    Definitely one of my brothers, thinking the older of the two wont because he will probably be engaged by then and she will make him go but the younger is the flakiest person I've ever known!

    My cousins. There's some family tension that doesn't involve me or my fiancé, but I'm afraid it'll be the reason if they don't end up showing up.

    One of my fiance's possible groomsman. He has had a tendency to flake out last minute which is why we are not sure if we want to make him one. love the guy but cannot be unsure on wedding day.

    Oh my goodness, what a story, Michelle!! I'm glad you took the initiative!! Has your friend made the proper arrangements for the wedding since then?

    Hey Jennifer!! If you don't mind me asking, why do you think your baby brother would be a no-call, no show to your wedding?

    We are guessing on a bridesmaid or a groomsman or both.

    It's ok Maggie!

    He is having a talk with that groomsmen this Saturday to confirm but we have 7 and 7. Well technically no he has his best man and 6 groomsmen (that 1 pending and if not that one we have someone else) and I have my MOH and 6 bridesmaids and a junior bridesmaid. so our bridal party will be 15 people how about you?

    One of FH's family members and his kid. They RSVP to everything and just never show up. His grandparents may pick the kid up for the wedding and bring him, but then they are spending the night at the venue so I don't know how that kid would get home. So I wouldn't be surprised if ultimately they were both just not there.

    My fiancé’s brother and or dad. They are super flaky and don’t see family as a priority.

    Toss up between my brother and my best guy friend. My brother always has an excuse to miss anything (his plans have changed 3 times already in regards to the wedding) and my BGF because, well, he is just flaky like that.
