I think I'm going to SCREAM!!!!!

From the beginning, we said we can understand if people cannot make it.
Everyone was told 15 months in advance that this was what we were going to do.
FI's sister INSISTED she would not miss the wedding, no matter what.
We also told FI's sister that we knew she would be staying at another resort, due to costs, as she is a single Mom, with a 17 & 5 year old. We asked her if her 5 year old could be our flowergirl. She said absolutely!!
So, I ordered dress, bought shoes, jewellery, welcome bags and gifts, paid for hair for FG and FSIL with Suzanne Morel.
** Note back in time: Our wedding was originally to be on May 28th, but with swine flu cancelling our travel, we had to rebook for August 20th.**
Everything was booked for her for our wedding in May.
FSIL was the first to call on April 27th and leave a message on my voicemail saying that travel was cancelled and I would need to rebook my wedding. (A nice surprise to hear that when you check your messages...). She then called me each night after asking what she should do, because I obviously had a "Plan B"?!?!? I got a quick response from the WC, and on Apr. 30th, I let everyone know our new wedding date. The calls from her stopped.
But she insisted she would be there.... plus she had another 3 months to save.
When she cancelled she had a travel credit to use.
Now, less than a week before we leave, she is trying to book her travel!! Imagine her dismay to see that flights are no longer cheap!! She is now expecting me to help her out with all her travel arrangements! She has left several messages because she doesn't know what to do now, and if she can come.
I simply cannot afford to stress about this right now, I have way too much to do! FI is at the point where he doesn't want ANY of his family going!
Oh yeah, and his parents never told us they were coming, but they never said they weren't. They just kept rubbing in all the things they have purchased the last year, and talking about going to Montreal, and then Vegas in December. My FI heard on Thursday that they are planning on showing up as a surprise! WHAT?!?!? Now I have to plan for I don't know how many people coming or not coming....
Any advice? If I had a time machine, we would have just eloped... LOL

We ended up booking travel for some of our family (some with their credit cards and some not) and I was soo irritated at the time, but they all ended paying us back and it was really important to us to have them all there..
Good luck - no matter what, it is your and FI's day and soon you will be a MRS

mikes brother (best man) texted, yea texted, him 2 weeks ago to say he wasnt coming .... he has a job training to goto. can you say BS?? its not an issue w money with him since he makes like 250k he just cant stand to see someone happy.
then last week mikes aunt bailed, mind you mikes mom and dad paid for her trip. Thank god the resort was understanding and gave them a refund but really
but these same people would be upset if they werent invited to a local wedding where we would pay 150 pp.....
im sorry you have to go thru this , its gonna be fine, just let it roll off......
