My husband’s cousin is getting married to a woman for her second marriage. (She has a kid as well). They are going all out with the wedding, which- wouldn’t be my decision for a second marriage when I have children, I am not one to judge. To each their own.
My husband is a groomsman. They just sent out a facebook invite for the rehearsal… and they are doing it the Thursday before their Saturday night wedding. The location is 2 hours from our house. They aren’t doing a rehearsal dinner, but doing some sort of dinner on Friday (not formal, going out or having a cookout).
What should he do in this situation? Suck it up, go (leaving work 2 hours early to make it to a 6pm rehearsal without food), drive home two hours, go to work in the morning? I highly doubt we will go to the ‘dinner’ regardless of what ends up happening Thursday because of the distance…. If the whole thing was Friday, we would just have stayed Friday night or something. But this seems like a lot of back and forth for something where they aren’t even offering him a meal. I oddly got invited to the rehearsal (no dinner) although I am not in the wedding.
Also, for some background – this same couple made a huge deal a year ago about going to our rehearsal on a Friday night 2 hours from their house because she (not in the wedding) had to work, which is fine, but she was going to make him miss it because she didn’t want to drive alone. Which there were plenty of solutions to, such as her catching a ride Saturday with other family members…. which she ended up doing, but caused a big stink about the fact we wanted him to be there on time and he called the whole rehearsal situation a ‘big pain in the ass’ because I wanted him to be there, when in reality she was the one causing issues for a bride two days before her wedding. UGH.
Oh and that Thursday is my 25th birthday.
