This is difficult. Part of me thinks they should move their wedding.. they knew about your trip/anniversary- the other part says to suck it up and go to the wedding. The other other part of me says let them have their wedding and go on vacation.

 I would probably have your husband talk to his parents and see what they say. If they don’t freak out about him not being at the wedding, I’d go on vacation. Maybe they can talk the brother into the week before/after? Regardless, this situation sucks.

I don’t think you’re going to lose the whole value of your flights. Normally, the cancellation policy ranges from $75-$150 per ticket and you keep the rest as a credit with the airline. Of course, that still means it could be $300 down the drain… Do I smell a wedding gift?? 😉

That really sucks of them, but I can’t say it surprises me based on the experiences I’ve had this year. Move your vacation back a couple of days, go to the wedding, and get him a very small wedding gift… AND ENJOY YOUR GETAWAY!

That totally sucks.  I understand you can’t plan for every event that would prevent people from coming, but when we were picking a date we quickly checked all the graduations and other major things that would prevent our immediate families and bridal party from attending.  I can’t believe they’re just blatantly ignoring that fact.  That said, I agree you should try to switch the flights.  Totally sucks, and your BIL should practically reimburse you, but ten years from now you won’t want to have missed this.  Sorry!

@misshoneybee09: You are keeping your veil for a child you don’t have? Why do you think she might have an accident with it?? Anyhow, I guess you know her better than we do.
