Razzlejones:  You’ve got to let him go. This tour sounds like a HUGE opportunity for him and his career, and you can’t expect him to sacrifice his career just for the sake of being at your wedding.

Flying him home may not be realistic, because your wedding is probably a Saturday, and that’s a big night for concerts.

I think you and your FI should say you love him and you’ll really miss him, but you totally understand and he is doing the right thing.

Razzlejones:  Your wedding is the start of the rest of your life. This tour could be the start of the rest of his life.

It’s a no-brainer.

Razzlejones: Accept it and be supportive of his dream, just like he’s enabled your dream. It’s ok to be mad and sad, but I get what he means by the band is bigger than him — he is accountable to his mates, his management team and his fans. He’s not yet at the level of Jay-Z where he can write his own checks. 

Forgive and support him when you’re able to dry your tears. It sucks that you aren’t able to compel people to come to your wedding, but it doesn’t mean that he loves you any less. It just means that he has prior commitments that he must honor.

Accept that he’s probably just made one of the most difficult decisions of his life, and celebrate both of these wonderful milestones in your lives!!

Get a giant cardboard cut-out of him to have at the wedding and reception and make it a fun, positive, memorable thing that you can all look back on and remember fondly.

This is life. Shit happens and crap overlaps and sometimes, when you have to chose between two things, all you can do is make the most of it. So make the most of this, for everyone’s sake.

Dress him up in a tux, take some pics, get a life-size cutout done and actually have that in your wedding party. It would be hilarious and he would probably absolutely love it.
