I would go ahead and go to both, even if it is just for the reception.  Unless it will create family drama to leave or you were close to the person that passed, in that case I would stay at the funeral.

I would try to go to both.  Not to sound inconsiderate but nobody will notice if you miss the ceremony.  That sounds bad like you’re only going for the free food but often the bride & groom don’t even see people at the ceremony.  I’m sure they’d love to have you at the reception. 

we had a couple who did this.  no clue why – I think they were just late or got lost.  They did tell us though but I wouldn’t have known!

I would try to make it to the wedding! If you see the bride and groom at the reception, you’ll probably end up telling them where your husband is at, anyway, so they’ll know why you were late.

I would go to both. As PP said, the bride and groom probably won’t even notice if you miss the ceremony. It sounds like you would really like to go to the wedding, so I say just go.

I like your husband’s suggestion. It’s definitely going to be an emotionally exhausting day, but it would e really great to be able to make it to both.
