Wow she sounds like a peach.

Since it’s her wedding and you aren’t invited I’d let her book your MIL’s travel, it’s her wedding, if she wants her mother there then she’ll book it for her.

Sounds to me that its more like she wasn’t interested enough in having you there so she excluded you, but ice spin she put on it.

I couldn’t NOT confront her about that. And there’s no way I’d be booking MIL’s travel, that can be SIL’s job.

Wowee!!! Im so sorry you have to deal with that. But helping your MIL is a nice favor to the MIL not SIL. Do it for MIL not SIL! Bitter sweet because of SIL but just think, it will be done with and you can wipe your hands of this!

Um if she didn’t give you a gift and is completely excluding you from the wedding and spreading lies to family, no I don’t think you should give a gift, card or even acknowledge that the princess got married.

@SupermansSweetheart:  Yeah, I’ve always been told that you don’t have to send a gift if you aren’t invited. I know it’s his sister and the mature thing would be to send something anyways. . . but I would be really tempted not to in this case.

Seriously?! Who purposely pulls something like that? I hope you aren’t helping her to plan anything wedding related. I can understand helping MIL book her own travel, but I would draw the line at helping SIL with anything else.

@SupermansSweetheart:  In fairness to her, 2 months is a very long time for anyone to “block out”. Is it possible for DH to fly in and fly out in a single weekend? And either way, couldn’t you attend?
