Culture or no, your Brother-In-Law and SIL have some nerve planning a destination wedding and then expecting someone else to foot the bill!! I wonder why your in laws are rolling over for that? 

You and your fiancé should just plan the wedding you two want, can afford, and can feel excited about. Your BIL’s entitlement and cash grabbiness need not affect your life or wedding in the slightest. Your fiance’s parents don’t owe you money for you wedding or bridal showers anyway. And this is not the first time in your life you will be unable to attend an event even though you want to. Just be happy with what is happening for you and stop focusing on the negatives!

im sorry to hear that you are going through this, sometimes the interaction of siblings can spill over and affect you as well as your spouse.  It never really stops, my uncle is very much like that with my father even into their 70’s.  Remember that at the end of the day you and your spouse will make your wedding special and while help from parents is nice its not a requirement, and if they choose to help one child over another not much you can do about it unfortunately.  My adivice is to focus and your own wedding, making your own memories, and realize you happiness isnt dependent on anything they do, your wedding day will be special and amazing regardless

That does sound tough. I’m with GLAMBYLEO, focus on your wedding and make it special for you, despite what’s going on around you. Let your Father-In-Law and Brother-In-Law work through their own stress. Your day is about you and it’ll be as beautiful and wonderful as you make it!
