Hi Bees!! I’m getting married in 3 months.. (Yay!) Mr B & I had to make a slight change with our wedding date because (ahem) SOMEBODY didn’t take the deposit right in & we lost our time with the reception venue. *clearing my throat* ANYway, we talked to each of our wedding attendants about changign the date.. they were ok with it, so we made the change. And now… my BFF says her little brother is graduating from college that day!!(he just found out this week)I know graduations are HUGE, but I can’t imagine getting married without her.. She is my oldest friend & my BFF in the world. I do have another BFF, who will do great.. along with my BM’s.. but.. there’s only 1 her. I’m not mad, i’m big on family & realize his graduation trumps anything. But.. she’s already bought her dress.. been helping with the planning, etc. What can I do (I know, nothing). We even considered moving the wedding to that SUnday, but its not working out that way. She’s still invited to all the fun stuff.. Bridal party PAR-TAY (next wkd), heck, she’s even hosting a Bridal project [email protected] her house.. should I just see if it works itself out, or really talk to her about it?? Wahhhhh!

What is it that you’d talk to her about? Unfortunately she’s already made her decision. I’m sure she knows you’re upset about it but she can’t move his gradutation. Sorry for the sucky situation.

What time is your wedding and what time is the graduation? Usually graduations are in the morning around here. Is it possible to do both? What is there to talk about? How she won’t be in it? Or just confirm with her so no assumptions are made?

I would just tell her how sad you are she’ll miss it and keep including her in things. The timing on that really sucks :(.

@Talishazwi: wedding is at 1:30. She has no idea what time the graduation is. Most college graduations ARE in the morning, but they’re sooo longggg!! Just wanted to talk to her about it, tell her how crappy it is… we havent really discussed it, so its lingering in the air right now. Definitely gonna keep her included in all the plans. (sigh) I’ll get over it.. not going to stop the show, just wish the show included her.

Don’t want to be a downer, but usually graduations are about the party and/ or dinner afterwards and not the ceremony itself so I doubt she could do both. I guess she has to choose. I’d choose my bff, but I’m not close w/ my bro. What’s odd is that her bro didn’t know the date of graduation until so late.

I would choose my BFF too, I dont think a grad is as big a deal as a wedding. Its up to her though. I would tell her if she misses the ceremony she is welcome to the reception though (I wouldnt want to miss out on having her there completely).
