A question of honoring you, not just your commitments
May 28, 2015 7:00 AM - Q. I am a bridesmaid in my cousin's wedding on July 4th. Because of the date, save-the-date cards were mailed out a year and half in advance. My boyfriend has known about the wedding since the card was received. His parents just informed him they plan to visit over that weekend. See what Carolyn Hax has to say on the matter.
