wow thats a bit tough.. how much are the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses? Perhaps if you could find cheaper dresses and cut down their cost they might still be able to participate?

Yeah the Bridesmaid or Best Man situation is really unfortunate. Could you pick a cheaper dress as it sounds like they have not been ordered yet? Is it possible for you to buy the dress for your BFF? I would be so sad if my BFF couldn’t stand up with me due to financial trouble. FYI, we discretely paid the tux rental for DH’s best man who was unemployeed and traveling to attend our wedding, just paid it off at the shop before he could pick it up and it never caused a problem with the rest of the wedding party. He was happy and it meant so much to Darling Husband that he was there.

We had two GMs back out in the last few months.  One, my BFF, will be in Afghanistan. The other would have barely had enough money to come, but recently got his girlfriend pregnant and understably has different priorities now.  It stinks, but we just moved some of our ushers up to being GMs and it all worked out.  I had a Bridesmaid or Best Man back out, but another girlfriend step in so I’m back to seven of each.

Its a tough situation, and I understand what you’re going through.  Just try to focus on all the positives about your wedding day, ie you’re marrying your best friend!!  That will make you feel much better!

Maybe the BMs could just wear dresses they already own, so no one would have to go out and buy dresses? Mismatched dresses look super good anyhow (my friend did it and I LOVED her pics) I mean, it seems really important to you that these girls be in your wedding, so maybe you could change things around a little so they could still be a part of it.
