I’m getting a little down about my wedding which is one month away. Everyone seems to be dropping out. First it was our professional musician who was going to play a few songs for the ceremony. Then my Maid/Matron of Honor decided she could not afford the financial hardhship and could not commit to participating in the wedding. Finally tonight my cousin’s daughter who was to be our flowergirl, informed me that they will probably be moving out of state so she cannot commit to being our flowergirl. UGH….I AM TOTALLY DISAPOINTED! I really wanted to have people in the wedding that I really cared about and wanted to share in our day.

awww, i am so sorry that is happening. i totally understadn how you feel. i had 2 BMs and my good friend who i asked to officiate drop out – all for valid reasons, but still VERY disappointing! i dont get the musician – was it someone you hired or a friend? can you find someone else in time? as for your Maid/Matron of Honor – can you help her out with the dress? she shouldn’t be obligated to pay for anything else anyway so if you can help with the dress, i don’t see why she can’t stand up there with you? and that does suck about the flowergirl 🙁 maybe they will surprise you, but for now its probably better to count her out and just be pleasantly suprised if you do have a flower girl. i didnt have a flower girl either because mine was supposed to be the daughter of one of the BMs that couldn’t come anymore!

@RachelD: Honey my wedding is a week after yours and I;ve lost 2 bridesmaids, 2 groomsmen, and a broom bearer. I understand. All you can do is readjust and replace if you can.

That is so sad! I don’t have anything to say advice wise, but just that I am thinking of you! This would be really hard, I can see how you would be dissapointed. You might be able to find a musician in time, and maybe you can help out the Maid/Matron of Honor. Either way, that’s rough.
PS – Nice avatar! I’m a social worker, too.
