I would make an appearance at both families’ gatherings. Welcome to holidays. 🙂 I don’t know that she meant to be rude. It might be due to expenses, or not wanting to plan something that rivals your rehearsal dinner or wedding.

I’m sure it will! 🙂 Besides, when you leave you’ll easily be able to say, “See you soon!” and everyone will know you mean in a day or two! 🙂

You could just talk to your Fiance and explain about your fam. Maybe suggest that both families meet and get together before the wedding. That way people wont be saying who is that guy? or what family is she from?  make sense? We are doing a mixer BBQ the frday before the wedding for everyone to come. This they won’t think uncle Bob is staring at them, they will know he has a lazy eye lol.

It would be really polite for you and your Fiance to attend both events. She didn’t invite your side of the family because she isn’t planning an event for your wedding. She’s planning a cookout for her family and invited you as her son’s fiancée. 

My dad, FH’s dad, and my mom live in an awesome triangle about 20miles apart from each other. We see all of them on holidays. It isn’t fun to do all of that driving and all of the strange compromise (appetizers at one house, dinner at another, dessert at another), but it means a lot to everyone to see us.
