@DomesticDiva:  ugh I hear you. My best friend is marrying (my FI’s brother) 6 months before my wedding, and  3 weeks before my bridal shower, and then she will move away from town.

She won’t be here for the shower nor planning. Breaks my heart so much, since I’ve been there for all her process and we are best friends since we are 5.

@DomesticDiva:  I wouldn’t count them all out. I’m sure some will still make it, they may just need to leave earlier than expected.

are you allowing children at the Reception? If so, some may be still able to make it. Newborns will sleep during the majority it. A lot of moms I know just wore the babies in slings while they slept and the babies were the most quiet/well behaved guestS!

It’s certainly understandable to be disappointed when people you love are unable to share in the day with you- a number of the regrets rsvps we had made me a little sad.

@DomesticDiva:  Awww. That does suck. I wouldn’t bring my 4-6 week old to a large event for fear of germs + just dealing with a newborn isn’t easy, so I’d definitely miss out too. Can you maybe invite other people in their place?

i had 4 babies born in the 6weeks before my wedding…including my sister and my college roomate/aftercollege housemate/very very close friend.

my sister baby was born 2.5 weeks before the wedding and she did come but basically only walked down aisle & gave moh speech. she spent the rest of the time in her room (wedding at same hotel) but it was still sad to not have her around before/after, for pictures etc. if it wasnt my sister she definitely wouldnt have come but she unfortunately has a fussy baby and a very difficult birth (c section gone wrong causing emergency surgury) 

my cousins w the 6week old came but mom took baby to bed (also same.hotel) after.dinner…i love that they came and appreciate that they were super thoughtful (sat way far back edge for ceremony in case they needed to take her away for crying)

my friend ended up having her baby 5week early and so she consideted coming (alone – leave baby w.father) but the wedding was 2hr drive and.she had to be so careful about germs bc baby was.premie and it.just didnt make sense.

my.other cousin had 3+ week old and the husband was going to attend out of obligation but we told him it wasnt necessary so they both.stayed.home

@DomesticDiva:  i completely get it, and how you are feeling is totally normal! i am going through this in a BIG way. my MOH just announced she’s pregnant and due 3 weeks after our wedding, and another maid is due 2 weeks before our wedding…i also have another very close friend who can’t come because her brother is getting married the same day.

i can’t imagine having my wedding without two of my best friends there…and my moh has even asked if i could change the date of my wedding. as you said, i don’t expect anyone to plan their pregnancy around my wedding day, but i also cannot be expected to plan my wedding around someone’s pregnany…nor will i change my date because it interferes with something someone else has going on…its tough because i don’t want to seem like i don’t care…but all of my friends are married and have kids…i’m the last one…so i kinda just want to be like WORK WITH ME!!!

thank you for letting me vent…that feels better 🙂
