Two of my good friends just got engaged and set their wedding date two weeks before my (already existing) wedding date. My fiance and I truly love them and would love to attend their wedding. Only problem is: it's in France. If they were having a wedding near me it would be possible to go, but we can't go to France two weeks before our wedding! Plus, it's not like they have family there... they just picked it out of the blue because they want to visit. And they are giving us a hard time already saying they hope we can come. What do you think? Is it unreasonable of us to skip it?
edit: I was going to write a long response but this article pretty much articulates my thoughts exactly: http://weddings.gatheringguide.com/ac/wedding-etiquette/how-rude-are-destination-weddings (which are, there are ways to make it not rude... but in general asking your guests to do that is very inconsiderate!)
