That happened to my dad’s much younger half sister. Her mother vanished in between the ceremony and reception, and the cocktail hour literally went on for 2 1/2 – about 2 hours after the food ran out. I’ve never seen 150 people so drunk in my life. Luckily my parents are extremely kind, punctual adults.

That’s the thing – we’re doing a first look and full bridal party pics, so showing up at 2:00 means she’ll be with all of her brothers – not just the girls.
I can’t fault her for not wanting to spend the entire morning with me and my sister & SIL. I’m definitely not going to twist her arm for that – but she can’t pretend she’ll feel left out if she meets up with us at 2:00.

Yeah, I wouldn’t wait if someone does this kind of thing. They just wouldn’t be in those pics regardless of being the MOB or Future Sister-In-Law. it’s not right to just leave guests hanging. good luck w/your Future Sister-In-Law and I wouldn’t stress over it- she’s there or she’s not, you’re shooting your pics regardless. if she isn’t in em & is only in candids later, who’s fault would that be?

Thats the sad thing. The morning of is the fun part, the part we all look forward too. Its hard, because you cant have expectations, but why is it so unfair for us to look forward to something. But this just prooves how people are so differnt. I have had similar issues with my bridal party… no want to do anything or par take but yet my Maid/Matron of Honor has gone above and beyond, you cant stop the girl. Ther needs to be a written boko of Bridesmaid or Best Man duties to be given before a girl says yes, because the morning of should not be messed with! Good luck girl!
