@WhiskeyEverAfter:  People are so damn sensitive it blows my mind. You’re going to boycott a wedding as a form of protest because your brother wasnt invited? Get out of here.  What amazes me about this phenomenon is how normally calm, level-headed people do a 180 when it comes to weddings.  Sorry, but me not being able to make all 4 of your showers does not make me a ‘bad friend.’

@WhiskeyEverAfter:  Same here. There are a couple that I think have cut us off completely for imagined wedding-related transgressions.

@WhiskeyEverAfter: I don’t know why either.

is how normally calm, level-headed people do a 180 when it comes to weddings.
 
Agreed!
 
My Mum and step dad went into controlling mood, I know they did it out of best intentions but it still annoyed me at the time and took me some time to get over it.

If someone “boycotted” my wedding I’d be glad that I’m not spending however much money it is on them.  No one’s precense is worth compromising for except your FI’s!

I learned a lot about people from my wedding. I considered it a blessing.

@WhiskeyEverAfter:  i have no idea why OTHER people feel entitled to control your decisions about your day. 

my FI’s brother (distant brother who travels for NOTHING), found out that FI’s other brother (much more reliable and all around kind-hearted) was a groomsman (we’re having 2 attendants each – that’s it). FI offered to pay for the distant brother’s suit or tuxedo so he can look as nice as FI and the other brother. but when distant brother got wind of the idea that the wedding wasn’t about him, he said he’s not coming and doesn’t want anything else to do with FI. 

uhhh, why so extreme? people are weird and crazy.

There is rarely just one bad apple in a tree. Forget ’em. Your fiance doesn’t care so it’s a moot issue.
