Looks like we’re off the hook, the wedding is off.
I’m not happy for them, as obviously it was a tough decision for them (her, I think) to make to call off the wedding with less than two months to go. Hopefully it was the right decision and they’ll both be able to move on with their lives.
However – awkward… “We’re all still going on that cruise!” I’m glad I hadn’t gotten around to calling their coordinator and arranging for our gift (we had planned on buying them champagne on the cruise). But how weird… stuck on a boat with your ex-fiance/fiancee and their family? No thanks.

Ok, anyone at work now? Would you even consider going?

Yours friend is in a really tough spot. If it was just the ex and their family, then no I wouldn’t go. We had an at-sea cruise wedding (we paid for the majority of our 7 cabins) and would have just moved our guests around so that we could both still go on the vacation we paid for. Since they’re still well-within Carnival Wedding’s cancellation policy (76 days out and you get a full refund for weddings) could they take that money to book an extra cabin for your friend and a companion to make it less awkward.

@Mrs Darling: Yeah I have no idea what they’re doing and the only way I know the wedding is off is a Facebook post she made and tagged him in. There has been no “formal” announcement – as far as I’d know my Save-The-Date is still for a wedding.
But it seems I’d have received an actual invite soon – maybe they’ll send out un-invites?
THEN – husband heard from another friend a week or two ago who wondered if we wanted to share a condo for the wedding. HUH? The wedding isn’t on the cruise? Apparently not… It was to be before the cruise? So we would have unknowingly booked a freaking cruise to accompany them on their reception/honeymoon and not seen the actual wedding unless we took more time off work and stayed there even longer?
