So just curiously do you ever put a friend over a family member when it comes to what events/parties to attend. My mom says a close friends wedding that your a bridesmaid in comes before attending a 80th birthday party for a grandparent. But I always had this thought that family always comes first. have any of you put a friend before a family member.

@Ap2010: To me it is a case by case basis. There are some relatives I have that would feel awful knowing that I cancelled out of a wedding to attend their birthday while others would be upset if I missed it. I would always try to get the best of both worlds.
For example in the situation is that I could personally take out my grandparent for their birthday or celebrate with them on a separate day while I needed to be a bridesmaid for a friend. But if that wasn’t negotiable to celebrate I would more than likely bow out of being a bridesmaid or somehow split up the day to get a bit of both in.
