I’m just feeling a little bummed because I found out another Bridesmaid or Best Man can’t make it to the shower (next weekend). I’m not angry at all, I know it’s not their fault but it just kind of stinks.
The first one that told me she couldn’t make it was offered a summer job and needs to go on a weekend retreat next weekend for training in order to keep this job. Of course I understand, I’m not going to ask her to leave this job behind just for a few hours with me.
The second one is pregnant and is due a week before my wedding (yikes). I’m not entirely sure what the issue is but Maid/Matron of Honor just told me that this Bridesmaid or Best Man might not be able to make it. I guess I’m a little upset that this Bridesmaid or Best Man didn’t tell me herself as we text everyday, however, I do understand. She lives three hours away so I understand that since she is having complications that it’s best if she stays home.
I’m just frustrated and sad. I wish they were all able to make it but it seems like it’s just not meant to be.

Aw.. Big hugs. It sucks, but just think if all the other people who will be there that matter.

Aw, that is really hard. I understand being disappointed. You aren’t angry with them, life is what it is, but it is ok to be a little sad. That said, you will still be surrounded with those closest to you and it will be an amazing day.
Can the pregnant Bridesmaid or Best Man possibly skype with you on the day? Have a laptop set up in the corner and let her a part of it for an hour or two?

@Rubbs: Thank you 🙂 This is true. There will be plenty of other people there that I’m excited to see.
@MissLibra: That is a fantastic idea! I will have to bring this up to her!

@MrsBeck: it sounds like you’re very understanding of their situations (a refreshing notion that is sometimes lacking in these posts). I’m sure they’d love to be there and are wishing you the best. Try to enjoy yourself anyway. Besides, there’s a brand new baby to look forward to! That’s always a good thing.

@MrsBeck: It’s sucky – but so many other people will be there to celebrate with you and you will forget all about this disappointment.
Have a blast at your shower, you will have so much fun!
