say that you couldnt get the time off work – i wouldnt be any more elaborate than that and no need to bring up your own wedding disappointment with the bride, she  has enough to deal with her own wedding

My suggestion is to still go with the truth. I am also a “truth kind of girl”. But in this situation, I would still go, if I was able to budget for it. It is not the couples fault that you wedding turned out the way it did. And it would make you the better person.

I would go with my husband. Boycotting someone else’s wedding will not improve the memories of your wedding.

@happynow: I would defenitely go with your husband, remember you vows unless this niece did you wrong even than be supportive.

Show them that you are better than them

I would also attend the wedding. Your most important relationship is with your husband, so go to support him. Don’t put him in the awkward situation of having to either lie for you or tell an uncomfortable, confrontational truth. 

Maybe moving on and attending this wedding will help you ket go of all that anger from your wedding.

@julies1949: I agree. Your bad experience was not your niece’s fault, I’m assuming (you say your husband’s niece, but I’d like to point out that makes her your niece too, and I think you should be there for her on her wedding day – don’t leave her hanging like others did to you).

Take the high road and attend thh wedding. I’m not sure what point your trying to prove by not attending her wedding.

I say that if it’s not only the bad wedding you had, but also that his family kind of sucks, then yeah I would say don’t go, and tell your hubby to tell them you weren’t in the mood, or weren’t feeling well. Maybe the couldn’t get off work thing could work.
