This isn't a vent at all, just somewhere to write it down. My best friend / maid of honour is pregnant with her 2nd baby! She just found out yesterday, and they're happy but surprised because they weren't planning on it (their baby now just turning 1). She probably won't be able to come with us anymore in December - I'm ecstatic for her of course, but I can't also help be a bit disappointed. I told her it's fine (and it is!), but I can't help feeling slightly crushed because I can't even imagine getting married without her there. I of course was very positive to her and told her that she has to do whatever is best for her and the baby. She's disappointed as well, and we're thinking about the timing and if she can still fly, but she'll be in her last trimester and probably around 32-33 weeks. Air Canada officially says up to 36 weeks they allow, but it's up to the doctor and the mom. I would not want her to put the baby in jeopardy at all.
We're starting to feel a bit sad about choosing a destination wedding and important people not being able to come. We were okay with just having our closest family and friends, but it looks like some of those people won't be able to make it. His groomsman is also a maybe because they're having a baby in September, and they're unsure how the baby will be in December. They're putting down their deposits, but they won't decide until October (when final payments are due).
AH - does anyone have any experience/advice with this? I'm trying really hard to stay positive - I know at the end of the day, it all comes down to my FI and I getting married. I'm trying really hard to focus on that and not on disappointments, but sometimes it's a bit hard
