Wow, I’d be pissed if someone tried to plan a party for someone else on my wedding weekend.  That being said, it sounds like you were planning to do something for the graduates, anyway? (Unless I completley misread that).  Call your FSMIL and tell her you’d love to help in any way you can.  I’d suggest haviing at your FSMILs house, just because of the stress of setting up.

Good luck!  Keep calm and don’t let this get you down!

My cousin who I also asked to be a bridesmaid when I got engaged in Sept is going to Africa for travel with school on my wedding. I found out through her facebook first and then she called me a few days later to tell me and say it was up to me what she should do and that she wouldnt go to africa if i didnt want her to. AS IF! I would not be put into that position, it is NOT my decision to make its hers. So she turned around and said, well I’d rather go to africa then. I’m extremely hurt and a little pissed off. Our family is very close especially all the cousins (they are all involved in my wedding somehow) and I’m hurt that she chose a vacation over family. I’m only having one wedding, and although I won’t say it to her face, Africa will still be there after. O well…..that’s my rant

Oooh, okay!  I misunderstood! πŸ™‚  I’d call FSMIL and tell her exactly what you said here.  Tell her that your Future Mother-In-Law and you were already working on a picnic for guests that day, and maybe she could do the graduation party later.  Or, could you say you’ll get a separfate graduation cake at your picnic?  That way you still get your party, but you can also acknowledge their graduation…  I’d still be upset regardless!  Ugh, weddings bring out the best and worst in people!

Wow…one event is stressful enough. I cant imagine being pulled in so many directions when you should just be focusing on your big day πŸ™

It might not be the most convenient thing for you and Fiance, but I can see why they would schedule something for your wedding weekend. If you have family already coming in for the wedding it might be easier for the guests to travel once. As long as they don’t set it ofr a time when you already have wedding activites planned it should be ok.
