Sorry bee. Honestly, maybe see if yall could live stream the wedding and give a shout out to Bridesmaid or Best Man but other than that, just love a little extra on your SO. it sucks, but life happens. 

At least his Bridesmaid or Best Man WANTED to be there. One of my guy’s friend who lives in the same town declined even attending our wedding. Don’t sweat it bee, just keep on truckin.

That really sucks.  What about having the best man call in with a toast during the reception – not sure how to set that up, but surely it’s possible, right?

I’m sorry this happened, bee.

You could ask the Bridesmaid or Best Man to make a surprise video to be played during reception, maybe during the speeches/toasting?

Better yet, have a live Skype chat with him during the ceremony and reception! Maybe ask someone in the bridal party to help out with this.

I was going to suggest skyping in the Bridesmaid or Best Man so he can give a toast. If you were planning on doing a slideshow or anything you’ll have a big screen anyway.

I was also going to mention using video. My grandfather isn’t able to make it to my wedding and I’m planning on having one of my brothers FaceTime with him so he can still witness the ceremony. It would also be sweet if the Bridesmaid or Best Man would be able to pre-record a video “toast” to be played at the reception, or maybe even just a personal message the groom can watch during the day.
