I just need to rant..
We are 2 months away from the wedding, EXACTLY two months away and so far planning had majority been smooth, a few bumps here and there but manageable. We have our RSVP coming up at the end of the month, everything except one small rental is booked and we are on the right track..
However the groomsmen were taking their sweet time with renting their suits, we gave them a deadline of April 5th but each time they said they would go they wouldn't finally my fiance told them they need to do it ASAP or they are out. So one went, a few days later two more and the next day the forth went. The fifth one did not. So I texted his gf and told her to take him ASAP and she says, "well idk if we are even going to the wedding" WHAT?!? HE'S A GROOMSMEN HE HAS TO GO!! So I tell my FH this and he texts that goes and he tells my FH that he suddenly cannot get the time off. He was asked to be a groomsman in August-ish 2017. We sent out save the dates in August 2018 and we even sent him the invitation in February of this year. He had PLENTY..no more than plenty of time to get the day off.
Any way so he goes on and says he's meeting with HR to try and get it off. He has his meeting and texts my FH and says, "sorry can't get the day off. I'll keep trying and let you know" so my fiance says okay but you're not a groomsmen anymore and you need to RSVP before April 26th, he did not reply. So this so-called best friend is probably not even going to be at the wedding and doesn't even seem to care!! I am in complete shock, I mean this guy is a total flake but I never imagined him bailing on his best friends wedding. I don't think this groomsmen is actually having that much issue with getting time off, I think his gf is behind this all. She's a very jealous and petty person and just before all this came up she was asking me a bunch of questions that she didn't like the answers to. "Where will I be sitting? Will I be near him or no?" No he's at the head table you'll be at a different table. "Is he walking down the aisle with someone? Who is it?" Doesn't matter. "What am I going to do all day while he's getting ready? Can I be with him..you..where will I be?" You'll be where ever we aren't. And the questions kept coming and coming. Then she also made comments about kids not being there and having no one to watch them, which is a lie she's got tons of people to watch them!
Anyway I just had to get then out! Because I'm super frustrated by this, I would never ever agree to be in someone's wedding if there was a chance I couldn't do it.
