@tiffanyscanlan:  I am so sorry! My SO has just had TWO of his best friends drop out because they couldn’t get military leave…I definitely understand your frusteration but the good news is that the day will go on 🙂 Celebrate with your FI until you can’t celebrate anymore!

@tiffanyscanlan:  How serious is your sister’s condition? Is your aunt’s condition serious? It is coming across as you not being super concerned about her and more concerned about your wedding. If it was my DH in the hospital with a serious condition and I had children, I would be more concerned about my immediate family’s health/safety/needs.

I understand you are stressed and frustrated, but caring for someone in the hospital is not the same as “not being bothered” in my opinion.

If my husband was in the hospital for any reason, there’s no way in hell I’d bring our children to somebody’s wedding. I’d be with my husband.

@tiffanyscanlan:  That sucks 🙁 I can understand the husband wanting to be with his wife in hospital. But perhaps a grandparent can take the kids? TBH I would have thought the husband would be relieved to have them out of his hair for an afternoon. You could suggest it – but don’t push it too hard, because they’ve got a lot to deal with.

@tiffanyscanlan:  Planning sucks and I don’t think anyone could deny that. Remember that there is a 20% cancellation rate and 10% no show rate so it IS normal to have people bail. Medical reasons are unavoidable and super alarming. I am sure they would be there is they weren’t facing these aweful illnesses

@tiffanyscanlan:  It doesn’t matter WHY…I get it. It’s disappointing. I think being brides so close, everything feels much bigger to us than it normally would. I’m sure you are concerned for your family, too. You just sound like your feelings are hurt…I get it. 

If it’s serious, I can see ppl not coming. But in AUS is it usual for kid’s to be at hospital? Usually it’s visiting hours only and for kids it’s afternoon or lunch time on weekends…something like that. So if the kids aren’t at wedding and mom and dad are at hospital, who is watching them? 

I had a “friend” cancel on my bridal shower, less than 24 hours notice….it’s today. Her reason was dumb but I do understand your disappointment. Just remember only the 2 most important ppl need to be there! 🙂

@tiffanyscanlan:  It kind of sucks that they are pulling the kids out of the wedding.  I understand your brother-in-law wanting to be with his wife in the hospital, but I’m sure he can send the kids with your parents or something.  I don’t think they really need to be at the hospital anyway.  Poor kids would probably be bored to death.
