You're scheduled to be the Best Man.. They elope.. What do you do?

that's where i'm at..

my buddy who was the best man in my wedding asked me to be the best man in his, coming up late this summer..

found out last week they eloped..

uhh.. now what? as the best man, what do i do now? he threw me a stag and the whole thing, and i was looking forward to throwing one for him, but now he's married, and there's no wedding.. and we have like 5 weddings to go to this year, and this was the ONE that i actually wanted to go to...

Since they eloped: nothing. If they have a reception or party later: make a speech.

Just throw your hands in the air, and shake 'em like you just don't care.

Be glad you didn't have to spring for the monkey suit. If they give a reception later, you can offer a nice toast. Otherwise, forget it.

You don't owe this guy anything for being best man at your wedding. By eloping, they were rejecting the type of wedding you had. It's not an accounting exercise.

Send them a gift. Tell them that if they change their mind and want to do the whole ceremony thing (sometimes parents can insist), you're still available.

I had this happen to me...twice. Just went about our lives like nothing happened. A good deal for all.
