Lack of response from FI's family

Recommended Posts

Maybe I am just paranoid, I don't know. Long story short (posted on another thread). My FI's brother (best man) got engaged 2 months after us and is getting married in June (2nd marriage for him, 1st for her). We haven't heard much from him after he announced his engagement. I told Fi to check in on him and make sure everything is ok with him coming to our wedding. He got offended and said my brother will be there, don't worry. Well, we have 19 other people booked (not him and his 2 kids). BEFORE the BM got engaged he declared financial problems with the cost of him and 2 teenagers coming to the wedding. FI offered to help and we haven't heard ANYTHING else.

Then I sent out an e-mail 4 days ago asking for shoe sizes for our favors (no response). I think it's rude when you ask someone for a response and you get NOTHING. Also, we sent out our invitations 3 weeks ago, I would think the best man would just RSVP right away. nope.

What do you guys think?

p.s.

I don't really talk to him on a regular basis since he lives in another town.

did you email fi's bro or his fiancee? I think guys have a tendency to ignore these kind of thing like its no big deal so maybe you should try emailing the bros' fi to see if she responds. Now if she doesnt respond I might get a little worried that they arent going but just dont want to tell yas.

Well since email is not working how about calling them to get a more direct answer? That would be my first step and if that does not work (if they happen to notpick up and do not follow-up with a call), then its up to you to plan on them potentially not being in your wedding party OR the wedding. People tend to not respond in the timeframe we would like them to, just the nature of things, especially with weddings. But you have to protect yourinterests and you anf FI pocket first, so I would say sounds like he will not be that dependable, so plan as if he will not be there. I wish you well!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
