I LOVE the names for the  couples you picked!! I wouldn’t invite Ike and maybe he won’t show up anyway.  Is there someone that could keep an eye out for him and kindly steer him out the door if he does show?

What a crappy, convoluted situation! My sister and I were bridesmaids for our SIL when she married our brother, and I’m sure we gave her some headaches, but nothing compared to what you’re facing!

To be honest, I would stay out of it. There’s nothing that will set a dysfunctional family off quicker than an “outsider” trying to tell them what to do (believe me, I know). Tell your fiance your concerns or, depending on your relationship with her, discuss it with you FMIL. Let them know you’re just worried about the relationship issues between Ike and Dan and you don’t want a scene on your wedding day, and a) how they think you should approach things, or b) if they can sort it out with your FSILs rather than you.

@LadyElva:  I think this is the best policy.

Let FI’s family figure it out. Plus, your invitations won’t go out for a few months – who knows what the situation will be like then. Why worry about it now?
