Latest BDW member to lose a member of wedding party.. sigh!

Recommended Posts

I know exactly what you are going through...my FH doesn't have any family members tending and I only have my mom and brother...everyone else is family. But we have had a total of 4 groomsmen drop out and 4 bridesmaids drop out for all sorts of reasosn. Luckily the folks that were already coming stepped up and wanted to be in the wedding party. Everything happens for a reason, but what is most important is that you and your hubby are there... Just focus on you guys and don't worry about anyone else, whoever wants to be there will be and the others, you will see when you get back. ok?

 

and don't hold grudges...i have to tell myself that everyday.

UPDATE: Well the best man and his wife lost their baby sad.gif I'm really sad for them. I don't think they will come to the wedding but FI asked his friend Ron to be his BM and he said yes :) Although they haven't booked yet either! Yikes. They are talking about going and buying Ron's clothes so I think he'll end up going.. I'm relieved that Jayson was able to ask Ron and he said yes.. whew!

Hi all. We had people commit about a year ago and within the past few months had 3 groomsmen drop out! Poor FI would ask someone else that he was close with and after today's realization that another guy (who committed 8 months ago) is dropping out one month before the wedding!!! Dare I say is it a guy thing? I totally understand if major things come up, but how do you commit to being in a wedding, sending in an RSVP card and then just deciding you can't afford it one month beforehuh.gifhuh.gif Sorry- just venting. I feel your pain on this one!!! I can't vent to FI because he is the one so disappointed..

that sucks ccarmany23. it seems to happen a lot with dw's. Is there anyone that is booked he could ask to have someone or maybe you could scrap the whole wedding party thing. Just have honorary bms where they dont stand up next to you but help you get ready all the other bm stuff. But if they are all committed that might hurt their feelings.

We had the same problem my FI best man droped out and is the only friend of his going, but my sister who is my MH boyfriend is stepping up to the plate. it sucks when people RSVP and change there mind so closs to the time. We had to find someone to take there place, which was not hard since it is so cold evceryone we talked to wanted to go.

 

Hope alls problems with guys backing out workes out, and hope no one else dropes out for ours and anyone elses

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
