@mscuppycake:  :Hugs: I’m sorry that you are stressing about this. I am a teacher as well, and I will say that is a risk you take when having a destination wedding. I have a summer job as well and need it to supplement our income. On our salaries and with the need to work in the summer, there’d be no way I could afford to go to a good friend’s Destination Wedding, no matter how much I wanted to. Even with a year in advance to save, things come up. Again, that’s just the unfortunate downfall of a Destination Wedding.

Maybe you all could celebrate with a lovely girls’ night out party when you return in order to include her? I think you have every right to be bummed, but you also have to realize DWs put a good financial strain on your guests, especially ones living off of salaries where they need to supplement their income.

I’m so so sorry 🙁

I was afraid my BFF wasn’t going to be at my wedding either and I was devastated just thinking about it. 

I know it’s weird but is there anyway you could skype her in for the ceremony? That way she can feel like she’s there and she’s still included in a way?

I’m so sorry that you feel this way cuppycake. You’ve done everything you could to make this Destination Wedding easier on everyone and unfortunately one person can’t make it. I understand the situation of that person but it is a bummer for you. But hey, just think, …..your day will still be beautiful because there will be alot of people there that you truly care for. I think its a good idea for you to get together before you leave with the teacher bridesmaid who can’t make it to Mexico.


Hugs to you!
