    I know, I'm so happy he finally came to his senses! He is really a good person, but sometimes he just goes too far to please his family. That would just be crazy for him to make that 7 hr. drive back & forth in 1 day and still be up for a whole day at DL. He honestly sat there for at least 30 mins. staring at the invitation, tugging at his hair, and going "Dang him! This is such poor planning...having it on a Friday at 5:30pm....people have work, don't they know?! " and on and on it went. Until he finally gave me the good news. It just didn't make sense for him to miss out on E3- a once in a lifetime opp. for him, plus I made it clear I would be going to DL w/the girls, either by myself or with someone who would be there 100%.

    Thanks mamas! Now should I include a note with the RSVP explaining, or do you think it's best to call? I usually talk to "N" through text/e-mail, but I think an e-mail or text might be too casual to explain why we can't make it, right? Any ideas? Thanks!

    i think whatever you're most comfortable with, i.e. whatever would feel least awkward to you (knowing the dynamic between you) would be fine. either a note with the RSVP or a call would be perfectly appropriate, i think. if it were me, i would probably call (soon) and explain, and still send the RSVP (if it's included w/ a SASE) with regrets and a quick "so sorry we can't make it!" but again, i think you're okay either way.

    I don't talk to her often, but I think I will call her just in case the RSVP gets lost in the mail or they overlook our response because they assumed we'd be there. I guess I'd/we'd better prepare ourself mentally for the reaming we're going to get from DH's mom/family! DH is Vietnamese and his parents are very traditional. They were so upset that DH's cousin & "N" weren't having a traditional Asian wedding (meaning the parents/family gets to invite 500 of their closest friends ) that my MIL said she was going to have a talk with cousin's parents!
