- Wedding: April 2013
lredfern6032: yikes, I’m sorry! This sounds really frustrating!
I think you know what your real problem is…your wedding party is WAY too big. So how do you solve that now? Just don’t replace people who drop out. That way there is no extra expense for you and less drama going forward. The rule of thumb you were told is a bad one IMO. Your wedding party should be your nearest & dearest, no matter how large your guest list may be
Youve gone above and beyond in terms of paying for clothing and hotel rooms. Kudos on that.
I’m sorry your friends are flaking on you, but be sure not to lump them all under the same category. Lots of the “excuses” you listed are super valid (ex missing a camping trip due to illness or work or missing a wedding due to an extended trip out of the country). It sucks how it’s all happening at once though.
