@nattiejeanne:  It’s hard, but it’s one of those things: you each have your own lives to lead and it’s not fair to expect either of you to put your life on hold for the other.

The last wedding I was at, the bride’s brother couldn’t attend because his wife was heavily pregnant. Everyone was understanding – again, it wouldn’t be fair to tell them to wait a few months to try to conceive. They skyped on the morning of the wedding, which helped.

I can sympathise – I immigrated to australia 2 years ago. All my family are in Ireland abd I do miss not having them close by for things like dress shopping. Also my sister got engaged last year but is luckily having a long engagement which means I should hopefully be able tobe there for her wedding. I would recommend using things like Facebook and Skype to share opinions with her. It sucks but there are ways to make the best of it.
