I have 2 couples (sisters and their husbands) they are my cousins. Their father apparently spoke with my father and said he doesn't think they are going to make it. 5 DAYS BEFORE my wedding. I've called the hotel reception venue and its $400 that can not be refunded. I'm going to ask if it can be applied towards anything else.
HOWEVER...This is my question: IS THERE A POLITE WAY TO ASK THE GIRLS AND THEIR HUSBANDS IF THEY WILL IN FACT BE CANCELLING ?
