No, you are NOT unreasonable to be this upset!  While almost all of the wedding party is in some sense absent, everyone is doing their utmost to come.  For people to schedule (negotiable) things for the day before your wedding when they’ve already agreed to come…  That’s incredibly rude to everyone but the couple, and vaguely cruel to you (intentional or not.)

At the end of the weekend, though, you’ll have spent it with loved ones and you’ll be married to your love.  

Fiance and I are former Army and he’s a defense contractor (the point comes at the end of this paragraph).  This week alone: MOH’s heart problems resurfacing, Best Man’s leave not approved, found out why Bridesmaid or Best Man2 hasn’t gotten a dress yet (good thing if I’m correct, and I understand why she hasn’t told me), photographer almost couldn’t come (couldn’t find money for a return flight for her and her daughter, and the flight only had three seats left when my mom intervened – my mom wisely didn’t tell me until after it was sorted), brother’s/SIL’s (GM/BM3) schedule conflict with him picking up his tux and her coming for ANYTHING but getting her hair done, my dad’s going further off the deep end (forgot to get a new car battery and that he was supposed to choose one of his CD players to use for the ceremony, surprised my mom with an $1100 dental bill for stuff he could have put off, and, inexplicably, tried to get the officiant to arrive late for our rehearsal because “it’d be funny” – the officiant, fortunately, knows my dad well enough to ignore him on most issues), and FI’s mom is maintaining radio silence, though she now has the money to pay Fiance back the $1900 he loaned her for plane tickets (her boss paid for the tickets with frequent flier miles, and FI’s car broke down this week.  Between the time off for that and the money, there’s no way we can do a honeymoon.)  The way I’m still in good spirits is repeating this:  “Osama is dead, we’ll be married in (10) days, and we get to spend a week with loved ones.”  I’m finally meeting my nephew.  I get to hug my grandpa and kiss my grandma.  I get to wander around my parents’ woods/actually spend time outside.  Anything that goes wrong at this point can’t be helped, so their’s no point worrying about it.
