- Wedding: October 2010
So my father in law has decided to get married again after losing his wife to cancer a little over 2 years ago. While we are all happy he has found love again, we are finding their wedding plans troubling. They have been engaged about 2 months after dating less than a year. He called last night to tell us that he and his fiance are getting married on October 6th. So like 5 weeks from now. He planned this without checking to see if any one in the immediate family had plans. His oldest son (my BIL) and his wife already have a trip booked for their 10 year anniversary that weekend- and they are not changing their plans. It also happens to be the weekend closest to our 2 year anniversary – but thankfully we didnt have anything major planned yet. So now Father-In-Law and his soon-to be-wife are “hurt” that some people can’t come. When we planned our wedding we knew that all guests would not be able to attend, but we at least ran the prospective date by the immediate family to make sure they didnt have a conflict. How much notice do you think people need to give to expect family to be able to attend a wedding?
