@jber:  You are not being selfish! You had these plans set in place long ago. There probably isn’t much you can do to change it and if you did you might be financially penalized. Furthermore, you are still coming to your cousin’s wedding, just not your future husband. I think that is totally okay, especially considering your cousin isn’t able to come to yours.

I wonder if your mom is bummed that she can’t help as much with your wedding, excited that she can help your cousin, and her energy is coming out this way. Hopefully she’ll cool down once she thinks about it some more.

How have your cousin or other relatives reacted to your FI not attending? This might have to do with how your mom feels as well.

Asking you to cancel your hunnymoob you’ve had planned for ages is beyond ridiculous.  Giver her time to realize that and don’t take it to heart.  She prolly just blurted out her first thoughts without thinking it through.

Nope, if the honeymoon has been booked then I would totally not expect you to cancel it so that your husband can go to a last minute wedding.  If you can make it, that should be enough as it is your cousin.  Even if you couldn’t, I’d think she’d understand.  AFter all, your cousin isn’t going to your wedding!  Has your FI even met this cousin?
