I can imagine your frustration – planning a wedding is super stressful. But try to step in her shoes for a second. Moving into a new apartment comes with its own set of stresses and packing and getting ready for that at the same time as getting ready for her sister’s wedding can be super stressful.

I would recommend talking with her and trying to find a way to move her in early. Maybe offer to go with her to talk to the landlord or something. If I were her, I would be super stressed that I was a.) having to move in the day before going on a trip across the country b.) feeling really badly about making you upset and letting you down and c.) wishing there was a way to work it all out but feeling helpless.

If that doesn’t work out, it is one day. Maybe you all could leave before dawn or try to stop less frequently on your way across country. Or maybe you and Fiance could drive the two of you and your sister and her boyfriend could get a flight? Is there a way you could fly out and be there and your Fiance, sister and her boyfriend could drive the car? There has to be a way to make this work for everyone. Try not to put your sister’s needs last though.

GOOD LUCK! I really do feel for you – I am sure you are awfully stressed!

I completely understand your frustrations, but I do think i would try to compromise a bit with your sister. You will still have 9 days once you get to new York and is it possible to take turns driving and stop less to make up some of the time? You may have already planned to do so, but just an idea.

I am sorry that this comes at an inconveniant time for you and I know I would be upset as well. I am sure you can come up with a compromise and I am sure that she is not thrilled about the idea of having to postpone it either…

Honestly, I know moving is hard, but weddings happen once in a lifetime. Try to work something out like talk to the landlord or something, but, if you feel you should leave on that day, I think you should, but that’s just me. Good luck. And remember, sisters are for life, so don’t puch her away.

@designish:  One-way flight from SEA to JFK on Delta is $213.00.  If she (or the BF) needs more time have her fly in later on her dime.
