    my brother didnt attend my FI’s bucks night and i couldnt care in the least

    i have more important things to worry about so i think your FSIL is suffering from tunnel syndrome and obsessing about the wrong stuff

    It wouldn’t bother me either!

    It’s not like your FH is snubbing his FBIL, he’s attending another wedding! He’ll be there on their wedding day to support both of them! How would she like it if one of her friends ditched her wedding to go to a stag? She’s just being a little bit crazy.

    I was at teh bachelorette of my brothers (now) wife, and my brothers were a part (and major planners) of my husbands bachelor party, but I always thought that was because we were all friends and he’s basically been a part of the family for years. So as a general rule, I dont think brothers are required – in my case – I would have been pissed because they are good friends.

    It’s not like he’s skipping the wedding! I would tell her to RELAX. Neither of my brother’s will be at my fiance’s stag because they live out of state, and though I’d like for them to get more bonding time I wouldn’t ask them to fly out for it.

    My brother couldn’t afford it and had to work, so he couldn’t go.  No one was upset, and everything was just fine.

    Honestly, I’ve heard some ugly stories about brothers-of-the-bride attending bachelor parties anyway. Probably best he can’t make it.

    I wouldn’t be upset at all, in fact I don’t think my brothers should be at my fiance’s stag.  That is his time to hang out with his friends, not worry about my brothers reporting back to me (not that they would).  It’s very self-centered of her to assume that his stag party is more important than a wedding!

    Exactly Nathalietanya…I always thought it sounded awkward.  Although I did have my FSIL come to my bachelorette party since she’s a bridesmaid.  Nonetheless, you already RSVP’D…it’s not like it’s the actualy wedding!

    I would ask her how she would feel if someone who had already RSVPed yes to her wedding backed out to go to a bachelor party. It sounds like she just needs a little perspective.

    I assume your fiance isn’t a groomsman for his sister’s FH? If he’s not, then while I understand why she might be a LITTLE upset, being crushed is a wee bit overreacting. Maybe she was hoping her brother would keep her groom in line in case they went to a strip bar?
