kathi, you know the situation with my family not coming and my sister backing out as MOH 3 months before the wedding. i have no words of wisdom here for you that havent already been shared by others, but i am sending a big hug your way. she shoulda had the decency to tell you herself that she wasnt coming, and not have put off you finding out until the day before you're supposed to go get her dress.

    OK so here is the story...
    I got text message from my sister this morning ( she didn't know my mom told me last night) She has a valid reason for not coming. I don't really want to get into her personal info but she has known for over a week. I guess she just didn't want to upset me, but come on how are you going to tell me the day we are going to buy her dress lol. She and my mother are coming today because I am taking my dress in (it doesn't quite zip up now that I have boobs) I am going to have to figure out if it can be let out or find a new dress. Thanks for the support girls. I really don't know how I would deal with this whole wedding without you. I love the idea of packing party Rebecca. I will involve her somehow and still get her a bridesmaid present. It really is out of her hands and she still wants to be a part of all the planning and parties. Maybe some miracle will happen and she will be able to come. I'm not counting on her for a bridesmaid but I would still love for her to be there.

    As for the rest of my family. It is not a money issue just a lazy issue. My Dad has his ass so far up his gf's ass he doesn't have much time for anyone it seems. I am happy for him but it just is so NOT like him to be so distant. I talked to them both on my birthday and they said they are going. I haven't talked to them since but they may have already got their passports. As for my Mom, SIGH she is the worst procrastinator I have ever met. It is a miracle I am as organized and on the ball as I am. With my little brother it is a money issue and I am going to help him as part of his graduation present. I will keep you guys updated. Thanks again!

      Did you get a boob job after all?! I haven't checked that thread in a while.

      I am glad you are okay about it, I know it sucks though. I hope your family pulls through for you.

      Have a good time today!

        Oh I am so sorry to hear that your sister can not come and the rest of your family has not booked. You should talk to you mom and express how you feel and if she is planning on going just book already so its less for you to worry about, your job is too relax and have a blast!

            Yikes.. sorry to hear about your family being lazy! My FI's brother isn't coming for similar lazy reasons.. sigh. It's so disappointing when family doesn't seem to care that much (or at least some of them).

              Well i'm glad that your sister has a really good reason and your being very understanding. It's a great idea to try to involve her in things before you leave. Your such a sweetheart.
