Under the circumstances, I don’t think you should feel slighted because your Future Father-In-Law won’t be at the rehearsal or the rehearsal dinner. I also don’t think it would be fair to the friend to have someone else pick him up at the airport. I think that would interfere with their freindship. Your Fiance doesn’t mind, so you shouldn’t either.

I think that is a good reason to skip the rehearsal.  It’s just him walking down with his wife.  I’m pretty sure his wife can explain everything to him later or the day of.  

No biggie 🙂

He probably thinks that since he has no specific wedding duties and that he is not needed at the rehearsal, it is okay to pass on the dinner.  Please don’t let this bother you, as I’m sure it’s not meant to be a slight.

I’d be ok with him not being at the rehearsal, but I’d be upset at him missing the rehearsal dinner. For us it was a chance for the families to catch up and relax before the day, it was a really fun night and I would have been upset if one of our parents missed it. Any way he could bring the friend back and they could both attend the dinner?
