- 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 Ring Bearer… 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
