Sorry that happened. Kudos to you for being so understanding. As for the 2nd Bridesmaid or Best Man…can I date her? I’d like a new cd player for my car, my house could use some furniture, and the fridge could use a little lovin. 😀 I think her backing out would be a shady thing for her to do unless she had some legit reason come up.

And, don’t worry about the whole BM/GM ratio. Lots of girls are having uneven wedding parties (my sister did!) and it looks great. I think it is better to have fewer girls with you that mean something to you than asking someone  to step in just to even things out. And, it might hurt the girl’s feelings if she knows she’s only a replacement Bridesmaid or Best Man. Like she didn’t mean that much to you to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man in the first place. Nobody likes to be sloppy seconds.

I’m so sorry.  I ended up having 2 people back out as well and had my husband’s sister as my bridesmaid.  It sucks!

Whoa! So she basically just got 11k? I’m gonna tell myself that she has a lot of oustanding debt/bills and needs that money to bali her out of debt. Otherwise, I wouldn’t think she would have any reason for not being able to attend your wedding. Is it possible she can’t miss work/school or can’t get a sitter for her kid? The sitter thing seems unlikely since you mentioned that she lives with her parents. Seriously though, good luck. And 3 on 5 won’t be bad…my sister had 3 on 6 but with more BMs than GMs. In pictures we just made sure to have everyone mixed in instead of standing in a line. If you mix it up you don’t really notice.
