One fo the GM has bailed...

Recommended Posts

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.

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... wink.gif

 

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)

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 wink.gif

    • 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.
