Okay, I just need a little frustration rant. FI is a GM in his friend's wedding. They got engaged last Dec and started telling everyone they were looking at the first week in March 2012 for the wedding date. A few months later, they told us it would likely be February, but sit tight for a confirmation. At this point it was still 12 months away, so we weren't worried.
Then the summer came around and we hadn't heard anything new, so FI reached out because (with us being in London), we need to book flights back to the states and would prefer to do this well in advance so we can look for the best deal. At this time, his friend said it was now going to be late March. He told us the date and said all the big stuff was booked and we could go ahead and get our tickets, hotel, etc.
Now this weekend, FI got another email from his friend saying that a few family members couldn't make it in March, so they are probably moving it to December 2011 (as in, 3.5 months from now)!
So, we're trying to be understanding, but I'm just kind of confused. Why would it have taken this long to figure out that the other date wouldn't work? Luckily we didn't buy our tickets yet for March (which we almost did last week), but now we have to look for tickets for December, but are afraid to buy until they confirm the new date. Ugh, too frustrating! Okay, rant off!
