I know that must be very frustrating. I think a lot of wedding frustration comes from other people not living up to our hopes and wishes.

I have to add, though – and I’m sorry to be one of those people – but the word “literally” means something that actually happens. It’s not a word that just emphasizes the rest of what you’re saying. So if it’s been literally pulling teeth, that means that you pulled the actual teeth out of someone’s mouth. 

I think you meant to say that it has been just like pulling teeth – that it has been as frustrating as pulling teeth would be. You mean it has been figuratively pulling teeth. Not literally.

I only jumped on that because you reiterated it.

@Ms-Lace:  You didn’t offend me at all. In fact by what I am going to say, I may offend someone. If “BM” can’t leave his “GF” for a couple hours at 35 years old and hasn’t had time for “Mr Lace” then he doesn’t deserve to be “BM”. I’d tell him Thank you “BM” but we won’t be needing your services at the wedding afterall”.  Explain to him that it is important to Mr Lace that he be a part of the wedding party completely, not partially and when he accepted being “BM” that is what he accepted. He accepted the responsiblity, the time, duties, whatever you want to call them as being with and doing what needs to be done with “Mr Lace” and the “ENTIRE” wedding party. And if he decides that he doesn’t want to attend the wedding after that, then he wasn’t Mr Lace’s friend.

With all that said, if I offended anyone, I apologize. I hope I helped. Good luck, Ms. Lace :0)

@Ms-Lace:  When my Fiance was  a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a wedding the bride went above and beyond and made sure I knew who was invited that could offer me a ride from the hotel to the church and then the reception.

What I would do is call up Bridesmaid or Best Man and tell him as part of the bridal party and a very important part it is his duty to ride all together. I’m sure his Girlfriend will know other guests and he can set up a ride with one of them if she is so scared to drive alone. If he can’t make that effort then I would seriously ask him to step down. I don’t think guys have that much responsiblity before the wedding, so the day of the wedding he shouldn’t mind giving up two hours of his life to make his best friend’s day special.
