I just found out one of my bridesmaids is pregnant and will be too far along to make it to my Destination Wedding. She doesn’t want to announce her pregnancy just yet because it’s so early, which is understandable, but it’s killing me to not be able to talk about this so that’s why I’m turning to the Bee’s! Please don’t get me wrong, I am so happy for her and excited to be an “Auntie” again, but just let me be selfish for a bit because I can’t talk to anyone else about it. I’m feeling kind of blue because I already lost one bridesmaid due to her not getting her time off approved, not to mention a ton of family who were totally on board for a Destination Wedding that have since changed their minds and aren’t coming. It’s shaping up to be pretty much just immediate family which will still be fun but I was hoping for a better turn out. I know that the world doesn’t revolve around my wedding but I’m allowing myself to be dissapointed just for today.
Ok…. Selfish time is over, lets get practical!! So we now have 4 groomsmen and 2 bridesmaids. I know it’s not uncommon for people to have uneven bridal parties, but how does that work as far as walking down the isle? When I was only short 1 bridesmaid I was thinking one of the groomsmen could walk with his daughter (our flower girl) but not sure if that’s weird, and even if it’s not what should I do with the other extra?
Another question I have is if the two girls can’t be in the wedding, are they still bridesmaids? The wedding is on a resort so there’s not much planning they can help me with, although they’ll still probably be involved in the shower and bachelorette party. I’d vote yes they’re still bridesmaids, but I don’t know if there are rules about this LOL. Do I still get them Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts? I haven’t bought them yet but have a few good ideas that I was excited to give them so I’ll probably go ahead with them anyways unless that’s a faux pas. Thanks for reading and putting up with my self absorbsion for a little while!
