I’m really sorry that was your dad’s reaction 🙁 And your FI’s family sound trying as well! Maybe try and do something nice just the two of you so you can remember what all this is about!

Wow.  I’m sorry.  Your dad/FILs kinda suck.  A lot.  They should be jumping at the chance to come visit you, let alone for your WEDDING!

i dont agree that people who care will come and the others dont care. Although their approach isn’t the best, having a distance wedding and expecting people to pay to travel AND stay for several days, it’s a lot to ask if people are on a tight budget. It doesn’t mean they don’t love you if they can’t afford the trip! When a couple plans a distance wedding, they have to expect that some, even close family, may be burdened by the travel aspect of the wedding.

As far as your father is concerned, if he was not a good enough parent to warrant walking you down the aisle, perhaps you should not be acceping money from him. ?I wouldn’t want him walking me, either, if we were not a tightly bonded dad/daughter, but I would also not accept money from him.

You could have both of them walk you down the aisle or you could have your father walk you part way and then your brother the rest of the way?  What about having your father in the wedding party instead?
