@cheebs:  How close are you to them? I know that it’s hard not to have a tit-for-tat mentality, but circumstances change. Also, just because your dad went doesn’t automatically mean that they’ll do the same for YOU. You’re not the same person.

I get how you feel and I’d probably be upset too, though. I guess all you can do is try to give them the benefit of the doubt (maybe they don’t have much vacation time, maybe money is tight, maybe they already planned and saved for a different trip etc. etc.) and put on a fun wedding for your other guests.

If these are people you hardly see considering they are out of state, I wouldn’t expect them to make the effort to attend.  Plus, you don’t know the cirumstances (money, work, etc).

Just focus on who WILL be there.  Trust me, when the day comes, the LAST thing on your mind will be who didn’t show.
