I think that your aunt is taking it a little too far. Honestly if you aunt is this dead set that her daughter doesn’t miss school there probably isn’t much you can do. I’m sorry.

You are not being unrealistic.  Your aunt is being unrealistic.

Your aunt is being crazy, in my opinion. Your cousin wouldn’t have to miss any school at all if her mom doesn’t want her to — or at most she’d miss Friday. That is so not a big deal. At all. My mom once had me miss 3 weeks of school to go on a family vacation, and I ended up going to one of the most selective colleges in the US. I don’t mean that as a brag, but come on…missing a day of school is not going to make or break anybody. Especially with a year and a half’s notice!  

When you plan a wedding you just have to pick a date that works for you and just stick with it. Inevitably it won’t be the perfect time for everybody, and that’s normal. If your aunt really, really does not want your cousin to go, then they can decline their invitations. I don’t mean that it in flippant way; I just mean that it’s ridiculous of her to be freaking out about something like this, a year and a half in advance! She’ll either be able to attend or not. 

I would just tell your aunt, if she starts bugging you about this again, “I really hope that you and [cousin] can attend, and that cousin can stand up as a junior BM. And if you end up being unable to make it, I’ll miss you.” Period. Don’t even think of changing the date.

Your aunt is being crazy. lol. You have tried to accomodate her and she is still not trying to comprimise. Seems as though you might have to do without her that day unfortunately.
