Sorry about your FMIL’s illness…
I love the July 4th idea. It’s sweet and intimate and would have your share special quality time with your Future Mother-In-Law… I think that’s what a wedding is all about (not Future Mother-In-Law, but spending quality time with loved ones to celebrate your love and commitment to your FI)
What does your Fiance think about it?

Wow, that’s tough – I’m so sorry!  My opinion on it is that if she said to leave it, leave it.  It might help her to have that to look forward to, and also it may make her feel like you’ve all given up hope if you move it up. (not to say AT ALL that this is what you guys are feeling, but especially because it sounds like she was just diagnosed and is still dealing with everything).

I’m so sorry to hear you are going through this.  I am unfortunately going through the same thing… except it is my dad with terminal cancer and my mom with breast cancer… from my family, it was heartbreaking and very upsetting to them when I mentioned moving up the wedding, or having a small private ceremony, as my dad was especially concerned, not wanting his cancer to affect us any more than it already was.  He was very adamant that this gave him a great opportunity and goal, and something to look forward to through all the horrible treatments and sickness.  I am getting married in October, and we decided to keep it as was because it meant so much to my dad that we had to.  He agreed that if he takes a turn for the worst, he will allow us to have a small priavte ceremony, as he knows it is more important to me that he is there, but he REFUSED to let us change anything (and probably would have made it worse for him) I say have a good heart to heart with Future Mother-In-Law, do some research, explore her life span expectancy and remember that miracles do happen!  My aunt was given 6 months to live.. 2 years ago!  and she is still up and moving, and you would hardly know she was sick at all!  Just remember to include her in the decisions, as this is really important to her as well!!!
