- Wedding: July 2011
Some of you may remember my major vent HERE. I send high praise to anyone with enough nerve to read through it… My vent today will not be nearly as detailed or as long… more of a wisp of feelings..
Last Monday one of my four bridemaids, my step sister, sends a text (a month before the wedding) that she isn’t coming to my wedding.
Yep you heard right… a text message. Something about she couldn’t afford the $175 ticket from New Orleans to Dallas… I could understand something like that had she not spent it partying the week before, or if she didn’t just get $1100 from my parents as a graduation gift, or if she hadn’t been my bridesmaid for the past 2 years of planning… or if I didn’t get her the shoes and dress for FREE, or if I hadn’t spent about $100 on Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts, OR that she didn’t wait until a month before to tell me…
But reasonably she has no excuse… She made it clear the week prior that she hates that she is in so many weddings this year… I took this as my first hint… I asked was she going to bail… she said no… four days later… she bails… You can imagine I am sourly pissed, especially since I have no last minute replacement.
The next thing is moreso sad….
My Older sister, mother of my nephew went into preterm labor at a mere 5 months… The baby was born at 1lbs 2 oz. He is my second nephew and will likely be at the hospital for a long while. That means not only will she not be able to make it, but my oldest nephew won’t be able to come either… he is my ringbearer 🙁
I can totally understand and agree to my siswter not coming. I mean, who wants to be 800 miles away and find out their baby might not make it? I would feel responsible.
I am sad that my sweet nephew was born so early, and also very sad my eldest nephew won’t make it and I wont get to see him… it will be almost 2 years… *sigh
So now I am out of a Bridesmaid or Best Man and a RB… My Bridal Party is going to look awfully crooked….
Ok… I’m through… its about time to wrap up my little pity party…
At least my Bachelorette party is in a couple weeks….take my mind off the “Days of My Life” lol
