I can't stand my future sister in law

She plans a wedding half way around the world. The flights alone, with the rising price of gas, are over $3000. I think it's beyond rude. Yes, I know that this is her wedding and it's not about her husband's family but I can't imagine planning a wedding without thinking about immediate family and their ability to get there.

I think you should make the trip a vacation for you and you hubby, that way you can go to her wedding and also feel like the trip is about you guys too.

If you can't stand her, why aren't you glad you've got the perfect excuse to not go to the wedding?

sounds like you are jealose.
Remember your brother made this decision as well. Why should they compromise their special day for you?!??!

I think it's rude of them to plan something like that. No two ways about it.
1:56 is right also that your brother was in on it too, unless his fiance is the type to railroad any opposition and he didn't have a say so in the matter.

Yep, just rude/inconsiderate.

I think it's rude for you to expect someone to plan their wedding around you. They are throwing a wedding and you have been invited to it. If you don't like how they've planned it, it's none of your business, and if you don't want to go for some reason, then don't go.

weddings set in exotic locations and involving family travel seem to be more and more common. I guess it's important to remember that it's supposed to be the wedding of their dreams but reality is reality and if you can't afford it, or don't want to spend that kind of money to attend, you'll have to just tell him that. He's entitled to have his wedding the way they want it and you are entitled to decide whether or not it works for you.

honestly though, deciding to hate your new sister-in-law is not a great way to start a potentially very long relationship. This is as much your brother's wedding as it is hers and if these are the plans he has either a) agreed to let her do it her way or b) agreed to plan it this way. Either way, it's his choice too.

Don't worry, with the divorce rates in America, she won't be your sister in law forever. Chances are you or your brother will probably get a divorce. :) Sorry! Just a thought though.

It's not my brother, it's my husband's brother. Not jealous. I know this isn't about me, I'm annoyed that the entire wedding is going to cost well over 6k with travel, hotel, gift, etc.

Is it a beach wedding or is she going home to her country of origin? If it is country of origin, your definatly can't fault her for that, and if it is a beach wedding, either shut up, spend the money, make a holiday of it, or don't go.

It is completly irrational to hate someone for having the wedding they want.
