Girl, you need to stop pandering to your crazy mother in law. As PP have said, it’s insanely rude to book a weekend away for other people with such little regard for their time or other plans. You said yes to the wedding first, you need to attend that and give your apologies to your in laws.

I don’t know why this is a question. Just tell her you are already committed to attending the wedding of a childhood friend that weekend. Either she’ll get over it or she won’t. If she’s got uncontrolled mental issues, it will always be something. Stop catering to her.

Surely you could attend the wedding leave earlyish and then attend the rest of the birthday weekend!
