I’d say let her back in but have full knowledge and acceptance that she may not be there or in the wedding. It’s just one of those things. It’s not really fair to the flower girl to not let her in, her mom’s crazy that’s bad enough!

If it were just the cousin I’d say no the person is an adult and should get it but really when kids are involved it’s not their fault and if they were to end up coming to wedding the little one would probably feel pretty left out.

Let her back in.  She shouldn’t be punished (not that that’s what you’re doing, but from a child’s perspective it might seem that way) for her Mom being looney.  I bet your FI’s cousin just does this to ruffle feathers, but her intent was never to not show or have her daughter be in the wedding.  If her Mom buys her plane ticket and her daughters, she’s going!

I would also let the little one back in the wedding but fully expect her or her mother not to show up.  My best friend has a crazy sister who she went back and forth with up until the day of the wedding, she finally decided to show up but my friend was fully ready for her NOT to. 

Also, I wouldn’t worry about being the “bad guy” if your cousin is doing this now I would assume the family knows she likes to cause this drama and not blame you at all.  🙂

Wow, how horrible for that little girl to get her hopes up and them have them dashed by her mom. I am sure that however it turns out, you will make sure the little gals knows how much you and your FI appreciate her.
