that’s shady. my brother may pull out last minute as well. since my mom isn’t coming (long story, didn’t feel like sharing here) and has pretty much written me off (took me out of the will, etc.), and he works for her…she probably will not give him tme off to come to my wedding. since he relies on her for paychecks and she can make his life hell, he probably won’t be able to come. not because he doesn’t want to, but because she will force him to stay. she’s a total control freak//bitch! ughhhh…..

don’t worry though…there will be plenty of people around you that love you and support you. if your brother chooses not to be there that is his CHOICE and should tell you something! if i were you though, i would ask questions and see if he has an issue he would like to discuss with you.

@Ahone:  I’m going to cross my fingers and hope your brother has a change of heart and will make what amount of reception that he can.  How far does he have to travel for the reception?  Do you guys get along?  Do you get along with his FI?  It’s just all so weird. 🙁

As a side note, if your brother’s drill gets out on time when they say it will, will you PLEASE have his leadership call my husbands???? (Kidding ofcourse).  I once had to wait 3 hours in the parking lot waiting on Darling Husband to finish drill because they went over.  There has yet to be a day where they have gotten off on time…Ugggg….lol

@Ahone: I am so sorry… I suggest emailing him and asking him if you did anything wrong; just let him know that you love him and would love to see him and his Fiance at your wedding. Also, let him know you understand it he can’t make it, but if he could please please please ask his commanding officer if there was any way that he could get off for your wedding that would be appreciated.

Ask him if there is any way he can ask his commanding officer if he can switch the weekend. I have an ex that was in the military and my son was in the military too, and sometimes things can be worked to where they can make up the date somewhere else; not always though, but it is worth a shot.

Also, if him and his Fiance are having financial difficulties, he may not want to miss drill because they need the money.

And about his Fiance, if you and him were extremely close before she came into the picture, she may be a bit jealous of you; just a thought though.

I hope everything works out for you 🙂

@Ahone:  I really hope he has a change of heart and makes it to your wedding.  With it being so close for travel, it’s just ridiculous that he wouldn’t 🙁

I’ve gotten used to the waiting.  The Army has a saying, “Hurry up and wait.”  And boy oh boy have I experienced that in the last few years. lol
