A few weeks back I had mentioned how I was a little disappointed that my dad was giving my cousin away before he was his only daughter and how we knew nothing about the wedding…
Well we just found out today that she has changed her wedding date AGAIN! This is now the third time it has changed in the last year and wait for it…it’s now the end of October 2010! Only a few weeks after mine!!! Not to mention my brother got married the middle of October last year. My entire family (parents and brothers) will not be able to go to the wedding because everyone is using their vacation for mine.
I just don’t understand why she would do that. Oh well…I find it both funny and frustrating and had to share with the hive

wow! ppl are so weird sometimes…
maybe they did it on purpose bc they want everyone to send them gifts and not attend their wedding. so they get free gifts!
i would buy them a cheap gift…hehe
btw..how do you know they are changing it? are they sending out STDs? or is this just word of mouth or whatever?

At least he will be giving you away first 🙂 Maybe there are financial circumstances why she has to keep changing her date?

Well, now your dad can give you away first. 🙂

@naangel: I know which is awesome 🙂 That is what they said when they changed it the first time. I understand finance are a huge part of things, but to keep changing is also hard too. I’m surprised they are able to with their venue and everything
@daniellealys: My grandma told my dad and said “oh I thought she told everyone”. Apparently she changed it awhile ago but never told us but my grandma thought she had. I checked on their registry and it has been changed on there so it is offical. There have been no STD’s or anything sent regarding any of the dates and like I said before the only thing we ever heard directly from my cousin was in an email about the orginal date last year! And yes people are funny sometimes.

with her track record, she’ll probably change it again!

lol I agree with MissLLC, she’ll probably change it again! But at least your dad will be able to give you away first now!

Have they been pushing it back each time? or has it gone back and forth?
It’s possible that knowing family won’t be able to make it is a tactic to save money on the wedding itself… I’ve seen others mention that sort of idea – like, “Friday night weddings get discounts, but also fewer guests can make it so it’s cheaper” kind of thing.

@MissLLC & bobbypinpearl: Agreed!
@daydreamwonderer: That is an interesting tactic! It has been completely different each time and now that I think of it the placement of the dates is kinda weird…Orginally it was the Sat after Thanksgiving ’09 so a lot of people wouldn’t be able to make that because of the holiday. Then it was June, which is a major wedding month and now it’s the end of Oct right around halloween and shortly after my wedding. Hmmm….

Wow she moved it again? At least your dad walks you down the aisle first. Does she know your dad is taking vacation for your wedding and will be unable to attend hers? @Daydream could be right, this may be her way of counting your whole family out of attending her wedding to save money.

she sounds like a character… well at least this way your dad will walk you down the aisle first!! 🙂

@Soon2beMrsM: We actually haven’t even heard anything recently about my dad walking her down the isle. I wonder if she doesn’t even want him to and just isn’t saying anything.
@missjyc: you make me laugh! haha
The whole thing about not knowing if she still wants to barrow my dad or not is really starting to get to me. My dad’s health isn’t the greatest lately and was in the hospital last week with chest pains (it wasn’t a heart attack or stroke so that’s good). He has really high blood pressure and is trying to get that under control. It would be nice for him to know and have time to prepare if he is supposed to be there so he doesn’t stress about it last minute. It would just be the considerate thing to do on her end.

Why doesn’t someone just ask her if she is in fact “borrowing” your dad & if so, what he is expected to wear? If it will help alleviate stress on your dad, then take matters into your own hands and handle it.
Whether they are that close or not, I think your dad is doing a wonderful thing by walking her down the aisle! What a nice guy 🙂
