Did anyone hae a wedding where a sibling was unable to attend? If so, was it weird? I think we are going to do what we can do to help him attend, and I hope he is able to... but we just don't know. I understand not everyone I want there is going to be able to go-

When this first came up, I was extremely hurt. I helped raise one of my brothers kids and attended every important event for his family from dance recitals to being in his own wedding. My other brother, I had hosted his wedding reception and handled everything myself from making the food to decorating, etc... for his wedding. My parents I can understand because of age and health. But it didn't lessen the fact that I was offended by everyone's disinterest and ambivilance.
I know this sounds callous, but eventually I realized that it just didn't matter to me whether they were there or not. I could jump an airplane tomorrow and elope and be just as happy as I would if everyone on our guest list did attend.

I also think there is nothing wrong with helping one person in a family, and not others. I paid for !/2 my nephews trip to help out my sister. I expect that my brother wouldn't care, and if he does oh well, all you can do is to try to do the best you can do!
