i think you can rush it if you have a flight itinerary….but you would be driving right?  

 i think the rush is pretty doable, I’m thinking what if you call the family and explain the situation and you would know for sure a few days ahead of time.  Most caterers don’t ask for final head count til a few days before wedding.

If you can- go- you can mix and mingle with the new fam, and maybe get some fun wedding inspiration for your event too.

I agree with what beeskness said. 

Just a thought, but have you already applied for your passport?  They also have the Passport Card now which takes 4-6 weeks to get.  Not sure if that’s shorter than a regular passport or not, but here’s a link about the card.

I agree with everyone who said try to get your passport.  I applied for mine in January without the rush payment, and it got here in only 3 weeks!  Plus, now when you apply you can track the status online, so if it isn’t shipped within a week of the wedding you still have time to cancel all your plans.

when i applied for my husbands last year- it came about 13 days after we mailed it out.  I was SHOCKED, at how fast it came back  – and there wasn’t a rush on it either…..

My FSIL just applied and got hers in a couple of weeks.  You should be fine.  This is a very good question because I think a lot of people don’t realize you have to have passports now to travel to Canada.

Also, in terms of etiquette, if you do reply as a "yes," call the bride and alert her to the situation, that there is a small outside chance you might not make it.  To me that seems like the most polite thing to do.  Good luck!
