So, going into invitations/RSVPs I felt like I had a pretty good idea of who would and wouldn’t be there.
My big “sister” (in my sorority) really got me past a few really rough times my seniior year of college-after she had already graduated- and I was going to ask her to read our sacred sisterhood verse at our wedding.
A week ago, I asked her whether she’d want to share a room (or not) with a fellow sorority sister for our wedding weekend. Her response was that she had committed to a bachelorette party for her cousin that was getting married a couple weeks after me and wouldn’t be able to make it.
I know that my wedding isn’t the function of the century (tongue in cheeks here, people!) but I still was completely bummed as she has known about it for at least a year.
Any other huge bummers? i obviously know everyone can’t come, but I am bummed 🙁

@toothfairy910: I totally understand; I would be really bummed too if my big couldn’t come either. I’m sorry! Hugs.

I’m sorry. It does make you a little sad when people you really want to be there can’t make it. Just remember, it’s not because she doesn’t want to, but because she’s keeping plans made prior. I looked up at our reception to notice that a couple (the guy I’ve know for YEARS and is a good friend of me and my sisters) didn’t even show up. They had said they were so excited to come. No reason, no communication. They just weren’t there. Of all the guests, I’m glad it was them, but it was still a really big bummer.

@KatiePi: thank you. That does make me feel a bit better. The thing is is that she has known about our wedding for about a year now and, well, i generally don’t know until bachelorette parties until a month or two prior. I’m staying optimistic (to everyone out there) but truth be told I am sad. And within the last two months she was telling me her address had changed and I was confirming her given name with her. If you already knew you couldn’t make it, why send me through the hoops? This is someone I stay in contact with pretty regularly. I am just, like I said beforw, feeling let down. Again, not trying to make it all about me but I guess there are people who mean a lot to me that maybe just don’t realize it’s a big deal (nor do I intend to make them feel that way!) but I feel like the Bees may understand more. Thanks again.
