Depends on the circumstances. Why isn’t she coming?

If she is coming to the other wedding shower, I would not be too upset about her missing it.

I wouldn’t be bothered at all but maybe that’s because my family and his family live 11 hours apart (IN versus GA).  I’d never expect my Future Mother-In-Law or Future Sister-In-Law to fly up to IN for just a shower.  I just luck out that my shower will be the day before my wedding so they’ll already be in town!

Yeah, it depends on some things.  Are you having another shower?  If htey are going to the other shower, no I wouldn’t feel at all upset.  If they had a good reason for missing, I wouldn’t feel upset. 

But it’s kind of strange that they couldn’t give a reason… Is osmethign else going on?  Do you gt along with them?  (I’m guessing they aren’t in the wedding.)  Are they upset about that?

Is this your one and only shower?  Or is his mother throwing you one as well?  I’d be upset if this were my only shower and they weren’t coming.  I’d be even more upset if they didn’t state a reason.  However, you really can’t express your disappointment in them, just in their not being there.  Hopefully there is a valid reason for their absence, it’s totally possible.

If they weren’t given a whole lot of notice then I can understand.  If your mom didn’t make a point of making sure they were available (which I kind of think she should have since they are the groom’s sisters).. then you can’t be upset if they had already made plans.  Unless you already have a strained relationship with them and you think they are purposely not coming out of spite.. I would just let it go.

Oh.. I don’t think I would really care if my husbands sisters in law didn’t come.

His parents aren’t coming?  That might bother me more.  Or is it just for younger folks.  So if it’s a couples shower, when you say FSIL’s aren’t coming, are your FI’s brothers coming without them?

Edit.  Oops forget the parents part.  I misread that.
