I haven’t posted in a while but i need some help. We just found out yesterday that the best man will not be in attendance at the wedding which is this Saturday. Not only is he the best man, but he was also supposed to sing! Two songs!!
I have no clue in how to rectify this. It’s too late to try to find a replacement and the wedding color scheme on the men’s side will be a little off (the best man and Maid/Matron of Honor matched in clothing).

That really bites. I think you just leave the best man spot open, have your Maid/Matron of Honor walk by herself. It’s a sign of respect to a friend who isn’t there. A friend of mine had something similar happen at her wedding where the BM’s parent died a week prior to the wedding. Obviously, he wasn’t feelign up to being there at that point. She had everyone in a different color, so it also through off her sceme, so she just didn’t have any of the ladies walk with any of the guys. To be honest, the only reason I knew was because I was her reader and she told me.
As for the songs, where are they in the ceremony? Can you play them on a CD or are they in a place where they can be skipped?

At this point in the game, do not get a “replacement.” If the sides are uneven or Maid/Matron of Honor is the only one dressed differently, it will be fine.
As far as the songs, was this apart of the ceremony?

Misswhowedding: Yes, they are apart of the ceremony. The best man (who is actually my Fiance nephew) was supposed to sing me down the aisle and sing during the sand ceremony. I guess or just let the keyboardist play the instrumental (since we have paid him to playduring the songs).
Skittles131: Thanks! This is just stressing me out 5 days before my wedding! lol…
