    Yes, you have to ask them.

    No, it's your day, do what you like.

    Sometimes it's ok not to.

    I would invite them but make it clear they wont be able to stay at your place. Maybe then theyll bail.

    Is there any way you can switch the events so that the Auckland celebration is first? 

    If your parents do end up traveling to Copenhagen find a hotel for them–or for you and your FI! That could reduce some of the stress.

    You should do what you want. It is very unreasonable of your parents to expect to stay in your one-bedroom apartment with a newlywed couple. Think of what memories you would like to have of your wedding day.

    She wants to come, so I would invite them but tell them you can’t accomidate them at your place, they will need to stay at a hotel or with someone else if they’d like to attend. Don’t engage them in any talk about planning. I guess it depends on how many people will be there, but if there’s at least 20 people attending, odds are you won’t notice them much.
