Can you offer to help with the travel costs?

My fiancé and I are paying for his parents to travel from overseas. They cannot afford it on their own. If cost is the reason given, I’d find a way to help.

Congratulations on your engagement!

My family is also not coming – well, they told me up front they couldn’t make it out – even after I offered to pay all the food and lodging.  So I did not even go through with my plans because if I’m having a wedding with only immedaite family, then there is no point in following through if they said they cannot come.  They just had to cover flights to my state.  Each one had an excuse (no money, no vacation, too scared to fly) but I can find an instance that refutes each case!  My mother told me I was asking too much of them to witness my wedding (actually she said she doesn’t know what the big deal was and why she had to go anyway).  I have flown home 30+ times in the past 13 years and they cannot come to me once for a wedding?

It hurts.  I understand.  You just have to feel the hurt, accept that’s how it is, and move on for your own sake and happiness.
