Bestman backed out
Posted 14 December 2009 - 03:49 PM
My FI's bestman backed out at the last minute. HE had agreed to come all this time, and then suddenly said it's too expensive . He sent the message in a text, can you imagine....!
He can definitely afford it, I think it's just because he had tried to get together with my MOH ( we all met at the same time about 6 yrs ago)and she rebuffed him in a bad way so I think he feels humiliated. But not to go to your friends wedding because of that..., he's married with a kid now, and she hardly even remembers him!
So we have a MOH, 2 bridesmaids, and two grooms men ( one will be the best man).I cant ask anyone to back out now.
How does it work when the numbers are uneven? Do the bridesmaids walk down the aisle hand in hand with the groomsman, or one by one? I just dont know.

I would just have one guy walk two girls down. He will feel like a stud and all will be fine!

It sucks but honestly, he's the one missing out!!!!!
I don't think it matters one teeny tiny bit if the numbers are uneven. Roll with the punches and enjoy your day-don't stress about what you can't control and trust that everything works out the was it's supposed to!!

It is frustrating right now but trust me - in the end the people who should be there will be and you will not find yourself missing the people who didn't show

1. He asked his brother he said no
2. He asked his best friend and although he accepted FI and I felt like it was best to relieve him from his duties because his job and this wedding together was just not working out. It would've been a hectic situation for him and we know he really was trying to fulfill his duties but time wasn't on his side.
3. He asked his father and he said that it would be best if he would insist on his brother(w/e) but he would do it if nothing more appeared(big WTF on that)
Anyhow honestly it doesn't matter if you have an uneven number or at least it didnt to us. Think of it as he is the one losing out on having the honor of being the BM for the wedding. My wedding coordinator suggested having the guys there with FI and the ladies just walk up as singles and on the way out my MOH was going to walk with my ring bearer , maybe this could be a possible solution?... Did you have tuxes rented etc? If not and having an even num. wedding is imp. have you considered asking someone else like a close family relative for be part of the bridal party?
