- Wedding: September 2009
My brother is getting married and we are not on speaking terms (he has done several awful things and refuses to apologize). While I don’t know for sure, I am 99% sure I will be invited to the rehearsal dinner. I don’t want to go because:
1. I don’t like my brother or his FI
2. DH has a big work event at the same time where he might win a big award. This is a very fun event, I don’t want to miss DH winning an award (if he does), and I don’t want to go to the rehearsal dinner by myself (DH has to go to the work event).
We have already received the invitation for the work event and need to RSVP soon (3 weeks before rehearsal dinner). The events are about 100 miles away so I need to choose. My parents will be upset if I don’t go to the rehearsal dinner. Do I go ahead and RSVP and go to the work event? Do I ask if I am invited? Do I wait? Do I tell my parents that I will go to work event and then try to make the rehearsal dinner knowing that I am unlikely to make it in time?
