In our wedding party we started out with 4 Bridesmaids and 1 Maid/Matron of Honor, and 4 groomsmen and 1 best man, and 1 ring bearer.
I’ve lost 1 bridesmaid due to her personal situation. Replaced her with another close friend.
One groomsman lives out west, and can’t come home for the wedding.
I just found out the best man who lives in the U.S. is probably going to be shipped out to Iraq again.
AND now one of the groomsmen and one of the bridesmaids that had been dating/living together for 2+ years just BROKE UP.
Can anyone say awkward? How many times have/did your lineup change? How frustrated were you?!

Mine hasn’t changed at all.
Your sides don’t have to be even, so I’d just leave it be.

Oh I’m not worried about them being even.. I’m more concerned about the best man not being able to attend 🙁

I know how you feel! We have a groomsman that is very very close to my FH, they grew up together and everything, that is agoraphobic among other things. He never leaves his hometown and when he does he is very uncomfortable. To top it off, he is afraid of flying as well, so there is really no way that he is going to come to our wedding. The problem is that he won’t say that he isn’t going! We have asked him repetedly and he says that he is working on it. My FH’s brother got married 2 years ago and asked this groomsman to be in his wedding as well (he was getting married close to home). Everything was fine until 2 weeks before my FBIL’s wedding when he suddenly said that he could no longer be in the wedding. For NO REASON! My Future Brother-In-Law offered to pay for all of his expenses, since he (the groomsman) was like a second older brother to him and still he said no. But, get this…he still came to the wedding as a guest! WTF? I feel really bad for my FH because I know that this person means a lot to him, but honestly, I don’t expect him to come. Its a shame too because his wife was really looking forward to going to Jamaica!
Needless to say, I am very frustrated with this gm’s behavior! I understand if he has a problem with expenses or with his mental issues, but just TELL US! I’m really afraid that he is going to drop out 2 weeks before liek he did to my Future Brother-In-Law. It will break my FH’s heart 🙁
