ebarnes0:  aw your poor FI! That does suck. See how he responds to FI’s email and you can probably get a feel for what the real issue is, if he is still making up excuses about not getting time off or the costs (after your FI offered to pay). Unfortunately, things come up and that is great he is showing he truly is sorry. It may be time for your FI to start considering back ups.

ebarnes0:  I completely understand. We’re going through this with one of FI’s groomsmen right now. He recently lost his job and FI texted him to wish him well in the job search and  he wrote back saying thank you and to not worry, that he’d set aside money for our wedding and he’d still 100% be there. Then a few days later he sent FI an email that said he and his FI had a heart-to-heart and they decided he shouldn’t come and all his moeny should go toward their wedding. I wrote him and said we’d pay for his second night of the hotel (he’d already paid the deposit) and his tuxedo if money was the problem, but he still said no. FI was absolutely devastated.

ebarnes0:  Oh no. I know as stressful as planning can be already, this is not what you needed! I am sorry to hear this, but you sound like you are managing it very gracefully and with a lot of patience!
