So I invited my brother-in-laws parents to the wedding. My sister unbeknownst to me invited her sister-in-law to the shower. The sister-in-law never got an invitation to the wedding. Then my sister sent out an unrelated text message and the sister-in-lawn RSVPed to the wedding via text message without ever receiving an invite. To make matters worse the In-Laws RSVPed no, and then said they cancelled their trip and are coming as well! We didn’t invite anyone else of a similar relation to the sister-in-law so said no to her coming to the wedding. Now the Parents are also not coming again and my sister is upset with me. This is 2 weeks to the wedding! Advice please? How should I have handled this?

So your sister inadvertently invited her SIL, and is mad at you for saying no? Sounds like her problem, not yours.
Sorry that the in-laws backed out this close to the wedding. We had some people back out close to our date, too. It sucks, but what can you do?

Thing is now she’s mad at me and she’s my matron of honnor and the rehersal dinner is at her house. And I refuse to apologize I did nothing wrong.

Carlamay24: at this point, assuming finances/capacity aren’t an issue… just let them come, and let it go. It’s too close to the big day! Clearly, if they are so eager to just invite themselves, they must be a little excited about it?? Just focus on why you are really there- to marry your love- and let them do what they are going to do. You don’t need to talk to them much- you will be so busy, you might get a few words with them and that will be it. Don’t burn any bridges with your sister right before the wedding either- never goes well. Just focus on YOU getting MARRIEDDD 🙂 and the two of you can duke it out after the fact if it’s really needed.
