They don’t sound like very good friends if they are going to peace out of the reception for a wedding they are in. That’s pretty disrespectful. Bands come and go, the wedding of their friend is way more important and once in a lifetime. If I were your husband, I would definitely tell them how much it would mean to me if they helped my celebrate this very important day.

Hopefully what was overheard was just some joking going on amongst them, and they weren’t really serious.  It could be!  I would ask politely, “Hey, I heard you guys were planning on leaving our reception early to see some bands at the fire hall?”  If they say yes, maybe you should confront them about it.  Hopefully they say they were just joking.

That’s rude. I would ask if the mutual friend could ask them for clarification.

@dev4216:  definitely do a little detective work – see if a mutual friend can say ‘it’s too bad you’ll be missing the band bash – but x and y’s wedding will be so much more fun anyway’ and see if they offer up their plans.

They don’t sound like very good friends. I hope your FH won’t be too crushed. Would it be worth it to seriously talk to them about it beforehand, or are they the types who wouldn’t care anyway?
