To still be letting this bother me slightly and find it really rude?!

A wedding one, sorry!
I got married last month, a few guests let me know last minute (within the week of the wedding) that they couldn't make it for whatever reason.
3 people (not connected) just didn't show, didn't let me know and haven't said anything since. Not even a congratulations. At the time I was far too busy and wrapped up in the wedding and honeymoon and aftermath etc. but it's still bothering me a bit!
Aibu to think that's really rude and not the done thing? Or am I being precious?
I really want to say something but feel it's too late now.

YANBU but its done now so I'd let it go and move on, or your memories of the day will be marred by the people who didn't show up.
I had a couple of people who didn't turn up to mine; one called a day before but the other three didn't and have never offered an explanation. I'm really not bothered, they missed out on a great day and a free bar.

That's disgusting behaviour on their part, so rude!
I forked out money for transportation for our guests, which everyone rsvp'd they had wanted, but no one used it!
There's so much hype about 'perfect' wedding days, but I think it's normal to feel a bit about some aspects of it afterwards

Their behaviour is totally unreasonable. If they had been taken ill on the day of the wedding or another emergency had occurred, they should have contacted the venue or someone in the wedding party (bride or groom´s parents or siblings, best man, bridesmaid, etc.) to let them know, then contacted you in person after the wedding. I am astonished that people would be so rude.
