    In that case I'd go. I think it's unfair for you to effectively take the blame for not going because your DH won't go alone.

    But I love weddings. Anyone's. Don't mind. Even if I have to travel and pay for my own food. I love the whole sh'bang.

    The reason I ask about kids is they make a fabulous excuse to avoid these types of events.

    Thanks everyone 👍🏻

    To add: he told his parents the real reason, but he can't really say to his brother, I don't believe in your marriage so I'm not coming...

    Actually I think that is even more reason to go. If it does all fall apart, his brother will need support. I think now is the time to show him you care.

    Rather than going twice, is it a possibility to change your dates and go after Christmas for the wedding?

    If not, I'm not sure I'd go. If you're not close, would have to pay for everything and it takes away savings for your honeymoon, I think I'd opt out.

    Stuff that!! No I wouldn't go. If I had a wedding down the road and we had to pay for our own meal that would be their gift too. There is NO WAY I would pay for my own meal as well as a gift.

    I don't understand why people are like your DF's brother either. It's like he's the "scraps". Oh well didn't work out between the other guy I chose over him so I'll just go back to second place.

    I agree. It's up to your DF. I'd just simply say you're not making the decision. He has to. Leave it to him. If he chooses to ignore it that's his choice.

    no I wouldn't go. that's incredibly presumptuous and rude. dh's brother and his wife had their child's baptism interstate and it was the same deal: fly over and stay someplace at your own cost, bring a gift and pay for your own meal and drinks. we just went fruck that and stayed home.

    I find these kinds of people really don't care about hospitality and showing their guests a good time. they see these occasions as an opportunity for gifts and attention.

    your df is thinking along the right track in not attending. if his bro is annoyed then he should examine what is causing his own brother to not want to attend his wedding.

    Sorry no I wouldn't go. Both on principle and practicality. The whole thing sounds rather ridiculous!

    Honestly I think I'd suck it up and go since it's not a financial issue.

    I believe this kind of event can make or break a relationship in the family.
    Also it's not about what you/your DH think about their marriage, it's about what you think of DH's brother.

    If you love him and care for him go. I understand they should have communicate better but mistakes happen.
