Hive I need serious help, I have one week to that wonderful day, but yet I still have a program issue that I need help with…Ok…Mr. PacMan and I both have children, my two will be in the wedding, however his two are several states away..and due to $$$, and our jobs they will not be here to be in the wedding…Is there a way that I can acknowlge them in the program?? Or should I just leave it alone…It really hurts him that they can’t be there but we would be flying kids in from states away along with their moms or, he would have to fly up and back and he can’t cause he has to work until the day of..(very long work story….ughhh-they messed up his schedule and now he has to work and no changing it..)…but anywho….what do you think I should do??

I think you should acknowledge them. I’m not very good with wording, but I think that would be nice for your FH.

I think you should acknowledge them but I’m not sure how to do it.
I was thinking about maybe putting something about them in the program but when I try to word it in my head I keep thinking that it would sound like they had passed away, which would be horrible!
My brother and his wife weren’t able to attend the wedding of a good friend of theirs b/c of a family wedding the same day. The bride and groom put life sized pictures of their faces on popsicle sticks and lots of people at the wedding took pictures with the pictures. I guess that wouldn’t really work for this.
How old are the kids? Could someone make a video of them giving a small speech that you could play at the reception? Do you have any tech savvy friends? Is there any way you could set up a webcam of the wedding speeches so that they could watch everyone watching their speech and maybe even watch the ceremony or another important part of the wedding?
With regards to the flying, is there any way that they could fly in alone? Don’t they have a program where a flight attendent will accompany small children who are flying alone? That way you wouldn’t have to pay for their Mom!

I would DEFINITELY acknowledge them! At least in the program & probably in the ceremony as well!

ok…thanks hive…I will acknowlege them…just not sure how yet??? To DaisyBride…thanks so much for trying to come up with something…the kids are 9 & 4…so flying alone….nawwww….and tech savyy friends…hummm I’ll think about that one…
We are doiong the sand ceremony…and we were just going to do the vows about ourselves, but we could incorporate theeir names in the wording..
But i still think I should put something on the program…We are remembering our grandparents that aren’t here…there is a poem for them and their names…
Hummm…let’s pray for creativity to flow…cause I don’t know what to do..
