I think it’s great that you’re being so relaxed!  You’re absolutely right … the pics will be fine and there’s no need to make a big thing about it.  Things will always come up that may alter your original plan … this is the best way to handle it!  I admire you for that!  🙂

It’s definitely a huge bummer but I think you have a great attitude about it.  I don’t think there’s a need to replace him and everything should go on as planned, no stress! Good for you for being so chill 🙂

Like three weeks ago one of my bridesmaids told me she didn’t care about my wedding (the convo was longer but that was the main point) and I haven’t talked to her since …and we’ve been friends for 14 years. I seriously don’t give a shit. Not invited! bring on the next issue!

That sucks, but you have a really great attitude about it. Not too relaxed at all. I’m sure some brides would have a meltdown.

Nope, I think it’s great you’re so relaxed about it! I don’t think it’ll look weird at all 🙂

I just don’t think there’s anything you can do about it and you do realize that, underneath it all. I think it sucsk more for your Fiance and his friend than it does for you..you’re rolling with the punches.

By The Way, what are “mandatory” teaching days? What if he woke up with the flu? Not that he coudl do that now…but seriously?!

Interesting. I didn’t know that about teachers. What a bummers. But hey, he can come AFTER school gets out, right? He’ll make it to the reception? Your Fiance can grab some pictures with him then since he’s a good friend. Maybe “re do” one or two group photos real quick, even if he’s just in a suit

That is upsetting, but you are right to not be concerned about the uneven parties. I have 5 BM’s and Fiance has 7 Groomsmen and is thinking about asking another! Right now the plan is for two ladies to each walk with 2 Groomsmen. I also shared a Groomsmen with my sister for our other sisters wedding. I think logistically it’s ideal for them to be even, but life doesn’t always work that way and it ends up being fine.
