Is your wedding destination? Why will she not be able to attend at all?

Aww…Sorry you have been put in this situation. Are you having a DW? Maybe Future Sister-In-Law really just doesn’t have the money to do a Destination Wedding. This economy is tough and she may have been planning on receiving an extra source of income that hasn’t come through (i.e.taxes). Additionally, its good that she has told you now since you are still a few months out (so its not exactly last minute). I don’t think you necessarily have to fill her “spot”. Just keep who you already have!

I agree, right now, money is hard on anyone. She may have been really excited and thought she’d be able to scrounge the money together but now she can’t. Who knows, maybe a medical bill or something in the house broke, etc… there’s so many things that can take our “few pennies” leftover.

I would be supportive and tell her you really regret she can’t come but that you understand. I wouldn’t put her on a “[email protected] List.”

Im sorry to hear that.  I do understand how she wouldnt be able to make it because of finances though.  Would your future in laws be able to help her out or would you and your Fiance if you really want her they?  Maybe you can offer to chip in on the cost of the flight and see if she can share a room with other family members that are going.

If you have another good friend you would like to be a part of your wedding, its not too late to ask but Id only do that if there were someone you really want, not just to fill a spot.

that’s a shame. will anyone in the family pay for her? it seems if it’s that important to you, you might be able to find funding?

sorry to hear about this. what a bummer! hope it works out.
