He’s blunt, be blunt back.  “Uncle, you came up to see us get married on the 6th, which you’ll get to do.  I have the rest of my life to spend time with Megz AND family, but I have only the 5th to FINISH UP details for the wedding on the following day.  You’re welcome to spend the day with us running around and doing our errands.  I can’t imagine that you are really suggesting I don’t finalize details for my once-in-a-lifetime wedding to go fishing, which I can do anytime.”

ETA: Re bocci ball, I realize it’s too late, but I would have just said back “I promised I’d play I didn’t say when.  If you promised a specific time, I’m sorry but that’s on your head and you should explain to your son why you shouldn’t have made that promise.”  He’s blunt, you have to call him on this at the time I think and be very clear.

@megz06:  In that case, maybe in the future it would help him to have some things prepared to say in advance.  If there’s a hot topic button (e.g. you are going to the family reunion and strongly suspect he’ll bug you about when you are having kids), suggest he think out a response in advance so he doesn’t get the deer in headlights feeling when he’s on the spot.
