Can you change the date or is it too late for that?  Not having one of our close, immediate family members able to attend the wedding would absolutely be a deal breaker for us.  It’s the people that surround us that are the most important to us on the big day and I would not plan a wedding where those closest to us could not attend

@mu_t:  

Just remember there are always other ways to include him! My FI (military) was skyped into his sisters wedding to make a toast and recorded a video for our nephew’s first birthday. It isn’t the same but it helps lift that feeling of ‘missing them’ that can sometimes happen. Sorry this is happening during such a special time in your lives!

very common with military families. 🙁 sorry to hear that. Is there some way to incorperate him into it?

My cousin got married last year and her brother was unable to come as he got deployed right before her wedding. It is super common. They filmed everything for him and they watched it when he got back. Also, he recorded something for her to watch that day – I don’t know what it was as I didn’t see it but I thought that was so sweet!
