If she has been so flakey, I would politely decline the offer.  You don’t need to have a post-wedding brunch.

you’re missing the easy solution

 

don’t tell your family unless she specifically brings it up with us (she won’t)

 

let her do what she wants with the few cousins who are staying with her

 

you can bet your ass that bill is going to be staying at the hotel so he can go to the after-party and drink a few of my brothers under the table.

I agree with another poster…she sounds way too flakey to be trusted. I would politely decline her offer.

I would leave it along and follow Mr. BB’s suggestion. Let her have a party with her relatives. If you can make it, attend. If you have other things to do, decline the invite but wish her well. This is not your party, don’t get involved. If she wants to call your parents and invite them, let her do it. If she decides to cancel after inviting people, be sure she is the one doing that as well.

@MrsBroccoli:  I know you’re far too polite to go out of your way to bring it up.

I will probably suggest she just make it a party with my side that we don’t attend since your family will all be staying in Baltimore and flying out the next morning–and that their flight plans had already been made and couldn’t be changed.

I’d let her do it, but I’d tell my side of the family you’re on your own if she cancels. That way if they don’t want to, they don’t have to. I’d also give the bridal party a heads up, so they don’t get their feelings hurt. You and your Fiance can’t be there anyways, just let her pretend with her family if she wants. You won’t have anything to do with it, it’ll just be her family getting together. If you tell her no, she may cause problems just from that.
