My MOH and her husband, our officiant, just told me that due to family circumstances mixed with the ongoing coronavirus, they cannot guarantee childcare for their son come the fall and, therefore, he has to back out of being our officiant.
I am gutted.
I logically get it. He’s backing out so he can watch their kid and she can stay on as my MOH. Emotionally, though, this is the fucking worst. My wedding is already small, they were my only non-family invitees, and given LIFE at the moment, I felt that I kept the bar on my expectations extremely low.
And then life came around and dug a hole to crawl underneath.
