I think that it would be asking a lot of your FI’s family to travel that much! If you do end up going with that date, I would be prepared for a lot of his family to not come to your wedding – I know that if I were in that situation I would pick only one wedding to go to.

If your heart is really set on the date, regardless of whether or not the family is able to make it, I’d make sure to find out how his cousin feels about it. You said her mom said it’s okay, but have you actually found out how the bride and groom would feel??

It is not ideal but I think it is okay with your FI’s cousin’s blessing (talk to him directly– not his mother). You have a good reason it isn’t like you’re just picking that date arbitrarily. BUT– the travel thing is really tough. If it is important to your Fiance for that part of his family to be at his wedding, I’d hold off. 

Lastly, if you decide that you want to do this and the cousin is okay with it, you just need to be firm with FI’s parents and say that you spoke directly to the cousin and he IS okay with it so they need to chill. 🙂
