@farmersdaughter: Welcome back. I would just be upfront about it. Your training sounds like it’s been planned for a while. You should just tell them while you would love to be there, you have to be in Central America at the same time and there is no way that can be changed. You don’t want to ask your training team to delay the trip. I wouldn’t. Is the date set in stone? like have they put deposits down? Maybe they will understand and push it back a week. The best thing to do is talk to them now instead of later.

I’m not sure how close you are to your brother and his Fiance, but couldn’t you discuss this with them? It can’t hurt, right? That way you can explain to your brother’s Fiance that you want to be her support team (bridesmaid) for her marriage to your brother, but you have a prior commitment. That puts the ball is in her court. If she decides to change the date then its because she wants to. And if she decides not to change the date, then at least she knows why you have to turn down her request and she wont think you don’t like her. 🙂
