MrsD41503:  If you don’t want to go (which you clearly don’t), don’t go.  Just let them know that you are no longer able to attend, no explanation needed.

I would leave the shower out of the equation and decide if you want to go to the wedding or not. If you don’t want to go, call or email her and tell her that your plans have changed (they have – you intended to go with your dad) and you won’t be attending after all.

i would call her and tell her that you cant make it and you are sorry that you had to change the response card.

I agree with @LadyBear.  Don’t factor what happened at the shower when making your decision.  If you decide not to go, let the bride know was soon as you can.

Good luck!!

MrsD41503:  +1 to everyones response. You don’t owe anyone an explanation. Say exactly what PP said. She is clearly not a rational person. If I invited someone somewhere who lived as far away as you do, I would not be expecting them to come as I understand its a big committment and expensive. Its expensive bc they will have to drive or fly, and they are buying a gift!
