@lifesaver08:  That sucks that it is stressing you out that your family may not all come to your wedding … Someone is having their wedding three weeks before you? I am sure the people that matter (siblings, parents) will make it to your wedding no matter what. Why not pick up the phone and call the ones you absolutely want to be there and just express that you want them there? Also, you could always go and visit the ones that were unable to make it the following year? Don’t stress, it is what it is.

@lifesaver08:  This post is very confusing.  It’s unclear if you had let people know your wedding date yet or not – you said it was chosen a year prior, but then you say your MIL told you to tell people now in order to scoop your family member or something.  If they didn’t know your date, how could they plan around it?  Also, is this like your brother or a cousin or what?

The important people will make it to your wedding.  I’m not sure why your MIL is getting all up in arms but don’t let her make you crazy.

@lifesaver08:  You don’t have to go to their wedding…

Yeah, it’s neither your place nor your mother in law’s place to tell someone else to move their wedding.

Are you willing to move your date?  If so, then do it.  You don’t get to tell or ask someone else to move their wedding.

Just a suggestion, but would it be possible for one of you to move your wedding EVEN CLOSER to the other persons?? As in the weekend before or after?  Then it would make it easier for your long-distance family to make it to both?? They could just make a week-long vacation out of it and attend both weddings (and save money on double flights!).

@HannahGrace:  Yeah, seriously. I don’t know why some people feel so entitled.

@lifesaver08:  I’m not trying to be rude, I hope you realize that no one has to take your wedding into account when they are planning their own. Perhaps they figured out that the people who want to and are able to make it to their wedding will, and anyone who can not will just not be there. Life will go on. And by the way, you didn’t “have” to announce the date via facebook if you didn’t want to, just because your MIL instructed you to do so does not mean you had to do it, that’s on you.
