    We leave for Jamaica on this day, in three weeks time.

    I just received an e-mail from one of the groomsmen, asking if I'd spoken to Matthew... and had he told me that he isn't going to make it...

    So now there will be a MOH, 2 BM's, a jrBM and TWO groomsmen. WTF?!!

      I'm sorry Caroline - I would be upset as well since it is only 3 weeks notice. I know it is hard, but try not to worry about it - it is your day, and you will have fun no matter what!

      If you are worried about photos - I'm sure your photographer has experienced wedding parties being uneven before - and he/she will know how to work with it and make the pictures look good.

        thats too bad

        a lot of people these days are going with uneven numbers in their bridal parties, but i know i would feel like you too if it had happened to me we're not a lot of people!

          People do things sometimes that leave you speechless and grappling with the total insanity of it all. It will not be the end of the world at all as I too have uneven parties so just think for the ceremony that you can have folks already standing up there or single file march, etc. There are definitely doable options for managing this so try not to stress...I am curious what was his reasoning for canceling?

            I had an issue with the uneven wedding party ... but it all worked out ... Jay's dad just sorta steped in and worked it all out ... walked my down the isle (as orig planned) and then went up and stood with Jay (not planned at all). Nothing really matters on the day... anyway... I cried like hell after everyone bagged us 1 BM and 2 GM.. but in the end, everyone that came... really cared to be at our wedding.. that is what truely makes it special.

              We were looking into seeing if we could help him out but it's really just not possible. Whatever! I'm not going to let it ruin the day. Thanks for the single file/photo-idea... Though I'm sure Josh would have thought of that...

              Oh, if I hadn't mentioned it (and I know I haven't) that wonderful photographer Josh Brown is going to shoot our photographs!

              To hell with the GM. It's all going to go off like a dream! (I'll keep telling myself that)

                So sorry to hear this...I think alot of us go thru this though. I had a Bm back out 3 weeks proir. Its no big deal. Just frustrating....Enjoy your special day!

                  I totally understand your pain. We dealt with the same thing. We actually just got confirmation from the BEST MAN that he was going to go this past Monday. It's strange how some folks can be so inconsiderate, especially when we bought the bridal parties clothes. I wonder why he waited so late to tell you & when was he planning on letting you know? That's additional stress that you really do not need!

                    Anything goes for a DW wedding... One of my BM's backed out too, and it totally sucks, but there are times when you just have to go with it. I think it'll be just fine. Just stay positive, and everything will work out... it ALWAYS does
