So, we're getting married next Friday (aaaahhh!). I will preface by saying that my fiance didn't choose his WP all that well and way too early (a year out). This problematic groomsman is a childhood friend with whom he's not been close for YEARS. I have lots of friends from high school I've lost touch with. I didn't suddenly try to build bridges by asking them to be in my WP. FI's reasoning is that he was super important to him at one point in his life. Oh well.
ANYWAY, the guy has been a bear to get ahold of from Day 1. Totally unresponsive. My FI tried phone, no dice. He tried email, no dice. Text was a no-go. The guy is super active on FB, but he doesn't respond to FB messages. Twice he's returned a phone call a month or so after FI calls him. They'll chat about the guy's business for awhile, then FI slips in wedding stuff. Then the next time we have something to ask or communicate, it's another pain in the ass to get a response. He missed the RSVP deadline, and didn't respond to FI's attempts to asking him if he was still coming. We thought he was dropping out. Then we had to bug him for food selections for him and his wife. And we're not asking much of our WP --- get a hotel room where we're booked ($100 per night), show up to the rehearsal on Friday evening (which is mandatory per our church and is followed by a food and booze-filled rehearsal dinner), show up in church-appropriate attire of your own choosing that you already own. That's it.
Last time they talked, six weeks ago, the guy said he was getting his hotel room the next day. We got a list of guests in the block yesterday, he's not on there. Called the hotel to check for stragglers who, I know have booked there, but maybe forgot to ask for the discount, and the guy hasn't booked a room yet. And of course, we've been confirming with everyone to make sure they know when and where to show up next Friday, and we can't get ahold of him. It's stressing my shit out.
