that is such a cop out. but I can see dan using the 'grammar' thing as an excuse. he knew what he was doing.

I'm sure the prince of Monaco can afford to pay an interpreter to translate his own vows from French.

I find it really annoying how chair fans in particular are calling dan pondscum, etc for writing louis vows or whatever... not to mention the amount of horrible things chuck has done and he is considered an angel or sweet yadda yadda yadda

I'm sure the prince of Monaco can afford to pay an interpreter to translate his own vows from French.

 

Things sometimes get lost in translation, though. You can't translate vows from French and expect have the same effect.

 

That being said, I have no doubt that he could have had them written professionally (though they'd be pretty generic, I reckon) or have said them in French. I'm sure Blair's inner romantic would have lapped the latter up.

Yet Dan was the only one who didn't try to talk Blair out of making the worst decision of her life. Chuck, Serena and even her own mother knew it wasn't right , yet Dan who has this big connection stood back and even wrote the vows and played the part of best man. In my eyes he let Blair and their friendship down by not trying to even talk to her. If he knows her that well , he surely could see that this was wrong, he has his own feelings for her but grow a spine and tell her like it is.Did you watch episode 11? He tried twice to talk her out of marrying Louis and it was made clear that he'd often tried to talk to her but she was adamant. 

In episode 13, they didn't even have any scenes till the end.

And by the way, her mom didn't try to interfere till she saw how she was acting. Dan didn't see that. Serena is her maid of honor so she had access to her on her wedding day, Dan didnt. Chuck was staying away till her mom called him, her mom didn't call Dan. I don't get how you can fault Dan for not talking to her on her wedding day when it was made clear that he had talked to her BEFORE in episode 11. At Vera Wang when she was crying and also when they were talking together. Let's not have amnesia because it suits you.

 

On her wedding day, they didn't even speak.

@TinaTrina- I watched all episodes of GG and I don't exactly have amnesia because it suits me , I have an opinion which I am entitled the same as you are.

My point was that IMO I don't think Dan was being a good friend to Blair, you make the point that he didn't talk to her on the wedding day - fair enough. But that's a big difference to standing up on the altar playing the part of best man when the bride doesn't want to marry the groom due to a pact she made with God and is marrying someone she doesn't actually love. At any point Dan could have objected and asked her if she was sure this was right - he didn't he stood back and waited for Chuck or someone else to do it , I think he let her down - but thats just my opinion.

Also Blair had spoken to Serena, Chuck etc. in the episode before and they still tried to stop her on the day

You said Dan didn't try to stop her and I showed you that he did.

 

As I already mentioned, Chuck wouldn't even have been at her wedding trying to stop her (for his own benefit, mind you), if Eleanor hadn't called him. Did Eleanor call Dan?  Serena tried to stop her but she also stood by her while she married Louis. Why don't you fault her for that? 

 

And Serena and Eleanor saw how distraught she was on her wedding day - Dan didn't see that. 

 

And he clearly didn't let her down because despite it all, despite everyone trying to stop her, despite that video being released, Blair still married Louis. Dan interferring wouldn't have made one bit of difference - her mind was made up.

Anyway, Dan can't win for losing. He already tried his best but that's not good enough because he saw that Blair wouldn't change his mind. If he did try to interfere, it would be said that he was being selfish like Georgina implied when she alluded to him releasing the video. Chair fans hate Dan because they wanted him to stop the wedding so that their precious couple could be together despite the fact it's clear he had no control over the situation. Oh well.
