I’m so sorry that happened!  I hope that he is able to have some friends come and have some time with this couple some other time.

Put a bug in the ear of one of his local good friends and make sure they plan him one heck of a weekend getaway, just the guys, before the wedding. Maybe that’ll help.

I know J is looking forward to going camping and kayaking with his guys (they’ve done it for 3 bachelor parties running now) almost as much as he’s looking forward to the wedding… or maybe more but he’d never admit it to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

The same thing happened to us with a groomsman, he will have a beautiful baby who is 2 months old by the time our wedding rolls around… but he’s still coming [please note we have backup plans!]

aww i TOTALLY feel your situation!

my FI’s extended family is only 1.5 away, but they don’t like to “travel” and he’s really sad that they might not all make it! to his WEDDING!

on TOP OF THAT, he doesn’t have a lot of close friends… a lot of acquaintances and his BFF, so he’s sad that he won’t have many friends to invite to the wedding either.

we did see the family up north over the holidays and we think we might have twisted their arms a bit (tho we shouldn’t have had to)… and FI is friends with a lot of my friends.. so we are going to have an AMAZING time regardless! ๐Ÿ˜€

When my sister (MOH) told me she was pregnant and had specifically planned it around my wedding date at first I was shocked and appalled at the thought, but now it doesn’t sound so crazy to me anymore. She wanted to be there for me, and really could get pregnant anytime (she already has 2 kids). No instead of thinking she was crazy for doing that, I think she was being practical and very respectful.

If she’s due 5 days after your wedding, unfortunately, assuming the father wants to be there for the birth they won’t be able to come. And the second you change your wedding date for them they’ll either get pregnant again or decide to bring a screaming baby to your ceremony.

What do you have done that your date can’t be moved… I see that your wedding is Sept of this year. 

Are the invitations printed… save the dates? If those are done it might be hard to change your date.

If not, your reception place maybe flexible in your changing your date.

hope it works out for you.

I would totally change the date, I would be so devastated too if I was your fi! For me weddings are about celebrating with family and friends and so if almost none of mine could make it on a specific weekend it wouldn’t be worth holding the wedding that weekend for me ๐Ÿ™ I hope you guys can figure something out!
