I keep wondering one thing “What the F?” Why you realize that you have no one to babysit your child 3 days before the wedding? We just were texted by our friend, whose daughter is going to be our flower girl in the wedding, telling us that his wife won’t come cuz they got no one to babysit their youngest son. Also his first text was like “is it on saturday?”. Yeah, man though you will celebrating it alone if you come on saturday. Because it’s on thursday…
I actually had a nightmare like 1 month ago that they didn’t show up and we didn’t have a flower girl and I was pissed…I really hoped it won’t come real, but I can see now it totally can. What’s wrong with people these days?

Geez, I’m so sorry that is a pain. They sure sound flaky to do this to you now. Do you have a backup plan should they not show up? Whatever happens, your day will be wonderful. Hang in there!

@Fegele: I know how you feel. I think that it is very inconsiderate of people to do such things. We make them important enough to invite out of all the hundreds of potential people that could have been invited, then they let you know a few days before, on the day, or, not at all, that they will not be attending.
I would be very upset with my friend if I were you, especially since his daughter is part of the wedding party and they are giving such a pathetic excuse for his wife not attending. Invites and RSVP’s are there for a reason, one of which is to give you ample time to find a babysitter if necessary! She probably thinks you will tell them to just bring their son along!
These days people are just way too self-absorbed.

We just told them to bring their son along! But I can see it can be a disaster, because whenever we came to their parties, in particular their daughter birthday (which we didn’t forget), or just came by their son would run and scream like a pig that is being cut alive for the stew. Doing a 2,5k wedding video, it makes me wish the boy stays home with someone.

What a pain, Im sorry!!! But try not to sweat the small stuff.. I know its a big deal and anyone would be pissed, but if thats the only thing that goes wrong it wont be that bad!! 3 days till your wedding!! Try to just be excited and enjoy the last few days of being engaged, and planning!!!

At this point there isn’t much you can do. Try to let it go and just focus on getting excited (understatement?) about your big day!!! Congratulations in advance 🙂

Wow that is so disorganised and rude 🙁 I would not be sure I’d want to remain close friends if someone did that. I know people have lives but they’ve know long enough about the wedding to organise themselves.
Hope you have a beautiful day!

I hate how inconsiderate people can act. And how modern society is all about trying to seem like your life is busier than the person next to you. You knew your daughter was going to be a flower girl, you agreed for her to do it. This was probably months ago. Why would you not have worked out babysitting details weeks ago!? I’m sorry but this pisses me off FOR you.
