My soon to be sister in law just let us know that she is expecting a baby two days before our wedding, and that she is having complications with the pregnacy. Her husband is suppose to be our photographer. Also my fiances mom said she will not go to the wedding because it is out of town and wants to see the babys birth. My wedding is scheduled on July 7th of this year.
I dont know what to do!! Is it to late to change the date of the wedding?

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.

@paula1248: I already talked to them about this stuff and his sister doesnt miond her mother being in the room. This is her third child and her mother has been there for the other two births i honestly think your right and we have talked to his mother about how disrepectful it is towards her own son and she said she doesnt think it is since they are not very close anyways.

@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.
