I’m really sorry your brother can’t be there; it’s really disappointing when siblings can’t attend Frown

I can’t say anything of practical utility as I don’t know anything personally about militiary obligations and how flexible they are or aren’t, but I think you’re completely justified to feel upset. I would be stunned and saddened if my brother (who is my only sibling) couldn’t attend my wedding. But if it’s something that can’t be changed, then I would focus on accepting it and keeping in mind that it is one day out of a lifetime — a very important day of course — but that his not being there doesn’t negate how close your are or how important you are to each other. I would try not to let this poison your feelings towards your wedding or your brother. It’s wonderful that you’re so close to your siblings and family. It only takes a little reading around here to see how many people have fraught family relationships which intrude on their wedding days. Not trying to minimize your disappointment at all, but just try to keep the “big picture” in perspective.

I agree that it’s unnecessary to try to fill the hole in the wedding party. No one can be a placeholder for your brother, and it’s completely unimportant to have matching numbers on each side. No one cares or notices that at all.

I’m sorry you’re upset. If it can’t be changed I hope you’ll be able to keep this from darkening your happy day.
