I need to know how to handle this situation...

ANyway, when we got engaged and decided on a DW his sister pretty much decided for me that her daughter was going to be our flower girl. (Fine, not a big deal). She bought a flower girl dress, asked if her friend could come to the wedding (who was going to be in Cabo as well) and swore up, down, sideways and backwards they were going to come to our wedding. NOW, i get an email from his mom saying his sister ISN'T coming (for some reason his sister can't tell me herself?). I am torn....a part of me is sooo mad at them for letting my FI down once again (he would never admit it though) and wondering if I should say anything or just let it go

But, they've let your FI down at every turn. Regardless of the promises, I'm sure in the back of your mind you were waiting for them to leave you hanging again.
So, if it were me, I'd say something snarky like "I figured all along" or something. Oh, and if you have another friend who is coming and bringing her daughter... "Oh, that's GREAT! Because I really wanted so-and-so's daughter to be my flower girl"
However, this is your FI's family - so check with him first.
Happily married since 2008

I think Megan's answer might be best. Tell them you understand, are disappointed, not surprised that this happend and that you are saddened that FSIL couldn't tell you herself.
I think you do need to address the situation for you, so it doesn't fester, and be done with it.

I am not in the best mood today either...but I think i'll go with a firm email. Not too bitchy, but gets the point across!
(I do like your answer though Becks!!!)

"I understand that you are getting married first in Calgary - I do hope that you will invite Sarah and the kids as they are not able to go to Mexico - Sarah in particular would feel as if she has some family there who care."
WTF?!!!!??!!! SHE hopes we'll invite her to feel like SHE has family that care?!?!?!?!!
WHAT ABOUT MY FI??
I'm sorry-I'm so mad right now, i'm shaking.

edit--- just saw your new post. I would say that the civil ceremony is only paper work and you only wanted you two to be there or something...
