I highly doubt your SIL wants her MIL in the delivery room.  Have your FI talk to his mother and explain there’s no need for her to be in the delivery room, and that it’s disrespectful to him (her son) to skip his wedding. If that doesn’t work, hopefullly FBIL and FSIL will say they don’t want her in the delivery room. For anyone except the woman giving birth and her partner, a wedding trumps a birth.

Keep your wedding date and get a new photographer.

@tonyalynn:  OK I thought your FI’s mom was MIL of the expectant mom, not her mother. If her daughter actually wants her there, I take back my previous comment, I think the birth then takes priority for your FI’s mom.

Nevertheless I would still keep the date, and just hope the timing works out.

I don’t think it’s too late to change the date, but do you really need to? 

I’ve never had a baby but they rarely come on the actual date, right? MIL will probably be able to make it. If she doesn’t, how would your FI feel? I would keep the date and book another photographer.
