FI's elderly grandmother and aunt were not happy about our DW either... we are going to the courthouse in their town to get married with them as witnesses so it will be something special just for them.

BUT, I will say this. Reading your initial post, it's clear that a BIG part of your happiness is spending this day with family. If it turns out that you have a large number of family members either unwilling or unable to make the trip, you may want to consider a contingency/back up plan. Not because it's fair, but just because it sounds like you may not be a bride who can be happy if everyone she loves isn't there for her wedding day. You can't control whether or not they all show. You can only do what you feel in your gut will make you happiest. Its something to think about...

I wouldn't have changed a thing, I had an amazing time, and so did she!!
...and so will you! When you come back home, you will be going home to your husband not your Grandma, so do what makes you two happy!

But I was torn because I'm very close to my 96 year old Grandad and I feel terrible that he won't be able to be there.
However, we decided to make him the 'best man' for the legal marriage here in Toronto. He is super excited about it and it's all he can talk about now.
It's your wedding and as hard as it seems, do what YOU want!
