How to deal when girlfriends becoming pregnant and can't come to my wedding!

Also, one friend can't come because his wife is delivering the day before our wedding. Lastly, our best man replied him and his wife may be getting pregnant soon.

So the moral of the story is, 1) you have to decide how much you want these people at your wedding it may be enough to change your date, but remember 2) people ALWAYS have stuff going on so you ultimately have to do what works best for you and your FI.

STD's sent out, resort and flights booked, and FI's sister (she's also my friend!) just found out that she is due a week before our wedding. It is her 3rd, so her plan is to be induced if she is late, and bring the baby down. Am I happy she's coming? of course. Do I think it's a good idea? Well, not my life or place to judge.....
Best of luck! I finally had a moment when I realized that my wedding is my day, and it is most important to me and FI. Other people may care, but they cannot/will not place their lives on hold for my day. Same goes with how much they pay attention to details, effort, etc. It just isn't AS big of a deal to other people! That way of thinking has gotten me through a lot of stress!

You have to rember though, and I had to remind myself, that this wedding is about you and your FI! Even though she won't be there to stand next to me, she will be there, standing next to me in life... I have made her a part of the daily wedding activities and kept her in the loop and she's helping me plan. We are both having fun with the parts that she is able to participate in and she's even coming to the bachelorette (but getting her own room )
I guess what I am saying is that there will be many momnets in life that they are able to share with you, and it's dissappointing you won't have them by your side on the big day, they will be thinking of you!!

We knew when we decided on a destination wedding that probably not many people would come. We accepted that fact, and decided that what was most important to us was the two of us getting married in paradise, even if we end up going just the two of us. Of course we'd love if others could join us, but it's not our priority. We've both been married before and done the whole big thing with friends and family, so this time we want to focus on us and our dreams.
Instead of focusing on who cannot come, focus on the ones who DO join you. Have fun with those people, and bring back lots of memories and stories for the others.

AND thats the choice/risk we take when we plan a Destination wedding..
It will be ok and your day will STILL be beautiful no matter what!
