@myluverbuny:  leave it alone. my FI learned that someone important to him can’t make the wedding. also, about a month ago, we learned that his brother in canada sat on the paperwork to get his travel visa and wasn’t going to make the wedding. FI had already paid a deposit on his tux and everything. these things happen but don’t try to go off and fix it. the day isn’t about them, it’s about you guys. just let it be.

@myluverbuny:  I would leave it. If they can’t give your FI enough respect to at least explain why they won’t make it, it’s not worth chasing them. Just support your FI and try to cheer him up 🙂 sorry your FI is so hurt. I know it must suck because you feel like you can’t do anything for him.

@myluverbuny:  I agree with PP about leaving it alone… Does he have other groomsmen? I would also be cautious about asking someone else to be a groomsman just to take someone’s place. You can have someone be a witness without having to be in the wedding – don’t put someone in your wedding party just to fill numbers, it will probably be something to regret! Just wanted to put that out there..

@myluverbuny:  Oh goodness, I didn’t realize that he wouldn’t have anyone else.. 🙁 That would bum me out too! Glad things seem to be working out..

@myluverbuny: That is really sweet of his other friend and I would personally take him up on the offer! It will be stressful for your FI before the actual wedding ceremony and to be all by himself might be really difficult. Just having friends around helps alot, at least it did for me! You never know when you need someone to run and get something or look for someone!
