So last year, my best friend flippantly mentioned she might be pregnant at my wedding, and I was like wait, you never wanted kids. Three months ago, she called to tell me she’s pregnant and due in September. Last month, she called to say she probably isn’t coming, because it’s too close to her due date, and her pregnancy is not going as planned, she might have some scary stuff to deal with, and if she did come, her husband can’t come because he can’t get time off. And like, I get it, we were both excited to share my day together, she was thinkng she might get a baby shower out of the deal, see her twin on her birthday, and She’s living far away from her family, and hasn’t made friends in her new city yet, so she’s depressed, especially with the concerns about Baby.
And now she’s not coming. And we’re not doing any of our fun planned stuff. She’s sad. And I’m sad. And I don’t know how to help her with baby, and just putting it into our RSVP tracker today made everything seem too real 🙁 so this is my vent, because I can’t tell my bestie how disappointed I am, because I know she isequally disappointed, and it just sucks. Like among my family, she was the one person I wanted to be there, and she can’t. And I can’t even skype her in or whatver, because there isn’t cell service at our location.

Is there wifi at your location???
That sucks and sorry to hear that. Maybe you can go visit her before or after the wedding for few days??

nelliemade : oh I am so sorry bee. That really sucks. Its great you are so understanding and it sounds like you are both as sad as each other. Big hugs. Maybe you could face time her whilst your are getting ready or something so you can still share some excitement with each other

hbraerae: I would really like to go visit her, but I’m afraid with a wedding this year, and building a house this year, it won’t be in the budget 🙁 This sucks! We talked for a while this weekend, and it sounds like she’s still hoping to make it, so I guess I can’t give up hope until she does.
MsBeer: I will see if she is still taking vacation time during our wedding day – she works really long hours, and weekends off are pretty rare.

One of my bridesmaids wasn’t able to make my wedding either 🙁 She is doing her masters degree in another country and wasnt able to get any time off to join. We took some getting ready pics and sent them to her and she gave my friend a written note to give to me. It was still sad that she couldnt make it, but it was soo sweet to read her note.
