Nobody needs to replace him.  Your best man deserves that spot & your guests will understand!   P.S. My husband’s name is Mark as well ..good choice 😉

Could you film his speech in advance and play it at the reception? You could either do it openly or as a surprise for your FI?

That sucks.  I am sure he is really frustrated, too.  When you get a date for surgery, you have to take it.  I made the mistake of declining a date for my hernia operation, thinking it would e problematic for work, and then I ended up getting one that was even more problematic, plus I had the hernia for over two months more, which was unpleasant.

Everything will work oout fine, of course.  It just sucks he can’t be there. 🙁

Just gives you a reason to celebrate with Mark once he’s recovered!

That sucks so much- terrible timing!! I love the idea about recording his speech as a special surprise for your husband though! My sister’s father in law was in the hospital for their wedding so they made a special speech about him and called him from the reception. Maybe you could Skype with your best man?!
