Bridesmaid went off to Australia with a return ticket to another province…
Another bridesmaid backed out.
Groomsmen took a job contract during Stag and Doe. After the date was set to a time he said he’d be available.
Another groomsmen took a “gig” on the night of the Stag and Doe and will be late. After I asked which day his “gig” was, so I could plan around it and he said not to worry, if it’s the same day, he’ll cancell.
I’m going to loose my mind! Only the Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man have been around.
(Sorry for my name, in my frustration of my 100th username denial I put that in and of course, it got accepted.)

That sucks but hopefully you’ll still have a great time at your parties.
One of my bridesmaids had to back out because she had to take a contract and needed the employment. Couldn’t blame her for that. And another bridesmaid let me know that she WILL back out if she gets a good gig on the same date…lol ok whatever. And my Maid/Matron of Honor also took a one way flight out to France to be with her baby daddy…again can’t blame her. So, just hoping they will all be with me in person on our wedding day, if not they will be there in spirit 🙂
LOL at your name :/

It sucks about your bridesmaids. I feel for you on that one. The groomsmen working instead of raising money for YOUR wedding? Sounds smart to me.

At this point my wedding planning process, I decided to just include those who are willing to make it work. If the rest of your party is backing out, it’s okay. It’s most important to be with the people who will support and be around when you need them. At one point I was just going to have a Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man and there’s nothing wrong with that if you’re content with it! Less gifts to buy I say!

Oh that’s terrible! I’m so sorry! I hope it gets better for you. I’ve had to replace two bridesmaids already and may end up haing another drop out but wont be replacing her. I’m just shrugging it off from here on out.
We also lost my cousin who wanted to be the bartender, she’s got the license so all was set, apparently she’s moving up north and didn’t bother to tell us, I only found out through her facebook status.
Boo people who don’t have backbone to tell you from the get go what they can and can not do and wont stick to it. It took MONTHS of being super flaky before my bridesmaids said they had to back out.

That’s crazy, I also had two BMs drop out. But truth is, things happen for a reason and the day is allll about YOU and your Fiance, so try to not let it get to you. At the end of the day it’s all about love and you probably won’t notice the flaky people are missing. That’s what I keep telling myself, anyways, I hope it’s true
